Warm & Fuzzy

Tuesday, September 25, 2012 128 0

Rings: Kate Spade, Coach. Blouse: J.Crew (similar). Vest: Hype via Nordstrom (similar). Dress worn as Skirt: Rachel Rachel Roy (also seen here). Shoes: Manolo Blahnik. Bag: Gucci.

 

Before last winter, I hated fur (both faux and real).  Oh boy, was I naive.  I’m now slightly obsessed with faux fur, and I would wear it year round if I could.  It’s so warm and cozy, and really takes any outfit up a notch.  I especially love fur collars, scarves and vests.  I’ve been eyeing this black vest from Banana Republic for a few weeks on their website, and can’t wait to try it on in-store.  Are you a faux (or real) fur fan?

    I can’t wait to wear my black fur vest…I don’t actually know if it’s real or faux but it’s super soft haha (my mom gave it to me and I just don’t remember. I THINK it’s faux tho?) I’m already starting to look for cute fall work outfits…I think I need more pants. haha

      Ha ha, I think I need more pants too since I don’t own any except for jeans!! 🙂 That’s definitely on my list this year!

    Great vest! I have a faux fur shrug, which is more of a piece for wearing over something dressy when it’s chilly. But I rarely have the occasion to wear it. I want to find a fur vest sort of like this that I can get away with wearing with jeans. I love how you’re wearing it too. So right…takes it up a notch 🙂

    It really is warm! I love it! Couldn’t wear it yet though because I would be dying here in SC! Love this look paired with the skirt!

      Thanks so much Kristen! It’s definitely been cold enough here in Toronto to wear fur! 🙂

    I am not a faux or real furn person…it’s just not cold enough here in Southern CA. I do have 1 suit with a faux fur collar that I can remove the collar. I get so many compliments on it when I wear it.

    I love this look on you and the shoes are gorgeous!!

    I love the look of a faux fur vest, but I’ve never been able to find one that didn’t look overly bulky on me. This one is so adorable, and the proportions seem just right!

      Thanks Alyssa! Bulkiness is definitely what I struggle with too. I’m short and curvy so most furry vests look like they add 30 lbs to my upper body. 🙂 I’m hoping the Banana Republic vest fits just right!

    I have that same exact dress and this post just gave me SO much inspiration. I never thought of wearing it as a skirt, but it looks amazing worn this way. Did you just tie the shirt and tuck it up to make it stay? Love the fur too!

    Seriously I HATE with a passion real fur…but I the faux kind is fine. I refuse to get the dreaded Canada Goose parka because of the fur. That’s how much I dislike real fur.
    This vest looks warm…which is just what we need right now with the cooler temps and wind.

    Fur already? 😮
    Looks cute though lol I own a couple of fuax fur vest too but I always get annoyed of them shedding all over my car seats, do you have the same problem?

    • Jenny
      September 25, 2012

      Oh yes, I’m already freezing here in Toronto! 🙂 Ha ha, actually no, I haven’t had that problem yet. I really check out the faux fur before I buy it. I won’t buy one that leaves fuzzies on sweaters or that sheds.

  • Bonnie
    September 25, 2012

    You look so chic and cozy! I’m insanely jealous as it’s still 100 degrees here! Also – I have to tell you – I’ve been obsessing about that feather, JCrew belt you wore the other day – I can’t find it online anywhere, and I’ve decided to try to DIY it. Wish me luck! Hope you’re having a great week. 🙂

    • Jenny

    Im so with you on fur… although i’m defo a real fur girl… faux fur for me is just fake and I don’t do anything fake in fashion. Faux fur is worse for the general environment than real fur anyway and as long as you keep to reputable furriers and steer clear of asian fur… real fur is so the way to go in my eyes… nothing makes me feel more feminine or cosy… defo a bit of the cruella di villa factor with it but I am happy to admit I LOVE it! Adore your blog and can’t wait to see your looks into winter as you’ve been an inspiration to me through summer!

    I love it as always! What a great color for the fur vest. To answer your question, I think I would love it if I could wear it more. It’s so hard to wear anything that has to do with cold weather in my hometown because we hardly get any. Haha! I love seeing it on other people though, especially the one that you styled here. It’s perfection!
