Faux Fur

When I was in the 3rd grade, my auntie gave me a gorgeous white fur coat for Christmas.  And let me tell you, I was absolutely enamored with it.  That is until I overheard she and my mom talking about it on the phone and the fact that it was made from “bunnies”.  And after I heard that, I never wore the coat again.  But even though I learned form a very young age that I was not a proponent of real fur, I did stumble upon a love for faux fur that has never wavered.  And every year when the temperature drops, I look forward to pulling out all of my faux fur pieces, especially my faux fur vests!!

Dolled Up

I love getting dolled up.  And the holiday season presents exactly that opportunity.  But living in a state with a cold winter climate, sometimes I feel like I don’t have any coats or jackets that look or feel all that glamorous.  So for quite a while, I have been on the hunt for a great (and affordable) faux fur animal print coat-and I am happy to report that I have finally found one (AND that it costs less than $65)!!! Not only is it super cozy (it reminds me of my favorite faux fur throw), but  I love the vintage feel of it, and the idea of pairing it back to great heels and a dress for a NYE party, or wearing it with boots, skinny black pants, and a silk top (like I did for a friend’s casual wedding reception over the weekend)…

Faux Fur Coat: Forever21 (under $65!!!), similar, similar, similar (all options are under $100!) | Silk Tee: Express (like I always say, BEST layering tees ever!) | Skinnies: JCrew | Ring: Kendra Scott | Necklace: JCrew | Watch: Michael Kors | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Clutch: Hobo International (loving the silver version!) | Boots: TJMaxx, LOVE these

On another note, can you BELIEVE tomorrow is NYE and that yet another year has come and gone?  As cliche as it might sound, I just can’t believe 2014 is already just about over. BUT I always look forward to all of the possibilities that a new year brings. Kind of exciting, don’t you think?

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!  Thank you so much for stopping by!!!!
