Faux Real


Leather-Leopard Jacket from ASOS, Pink Feather Collar from Topshop, Butterfly Phrenology Bust from A&G Merch

I'm sure this is not very politically correct of me, but I'm dying for the seasons to change so I can start wearing the faux fur pieces I've picked up lately. From colorful velvety shoes to pony hairs jackets and ankle boots to gem-tone faux fur stoles and feathery collars (not to mention my favorite fuzzy leopard coat gifted to me by Evans last winter), I'm dying for the temperatures to drop about twenty-degrees so I can wear these cozy accoutrements outside. I confess I've been playing dress up with the AC blasting at home, but nothing beats a brisk fall day. If there's a furry piece you're dying to wear, too, I want to hear about it!

  2. That jacket is divine. I am waiting on my long silver faux fur coat. Had it for a year and have been battling through summer to put it back on. Might invest in a fur collar or two to make my other jackets lovely and autumn/wintery too. It is the best season for me. :)

  3. that must be hilarious! outside it is like 90° and inside you are wearing faux fur! that is what i call determination! i am pretty fond of the exotic trend too but i buy faux! something inside me tells me that it is okay to wear a cow but not a snake!!! sounds stupid, but this is how i feel! anyway, that  jacket, yes yes yes! that is an interesting leather jacket! statement piece FUR sure!

  4. Faux fur is my life. I have the most amazing faux-mink jacket that I bought when I was about 15 and have been wearing ever since, and it cost me 20 quid! Always in the market for some of the furry stuff...

  9. Haha, well I'm sure it's quite politically incorrect of me that I'm anxious to wear my real fur pieces :x I can't wait for fall!!! The best time of year in NYC.

  13. I hear ya'! I can't wait for that first whiff of fall in the air so I can bust out the new faux leather jacket I picked up yesterday! Have already lost count of how many times I've put it on and posed in the mirror with it in the last 29 hours.

  20. Diggin' that jacket. It's hardly ever cold enough to wear cosy furry pieces where I live (right now it's winter and I'm getting away with jeans and a t-shirt haha) but I wish I could pull off some faux fur vests or chunky knits every now and then.

  21. wellllllllllllllllllllll, I'm the opposite, it's been an eternal fall in SF this year and now that I've returned from vacation in Mexico, I'm NOT looking forward to wearing sweaters and tights all over again. I think you should move over here once and for all! :)

  24. Hey Nicolette! Awesome Fauz Fur - animal prints are so much in right now! And I want to thank you for all your inspiration as it has given me courage to start my own blog (http://misscherrycheeks.blogspot.com/). I can't wait for your next post :) THANK YOU! Xx Tanya

  25. I can't wait to try mine, too! I'm super excited about my grandmother's coat I got just few months ago.

  26. Love the last photo, and I equally love the faux/real too, I think I only own a few of those prints, but I must admit, after watching Jerseylicious, I'm inspired again, and of  course this jacket inspires me too!

  27. I definitely agree, can't wait to start wearing some coats! Your jewel tone stoles sound so pretty. I have a vintage brown faux fur stole/cape that is my go-to cold weather piece and I can't wait to pull it out of the closet.

  28. Thanks so much! I'd love to check out your blog but you forgot to include a link!

  29. Thank you!! Ohhh, silvery faux fox sounds exception. I've been picking up some (faux) collars here and there (ASOS has some really brilliant, bright collars) to throw over my classic, staple jackets in place of buying new outerwear.

  30. Faux all the way!!! I'm not into real exotics, either. And I know what you mean about a cow versus a snake. It's a strange logic but I definitely feel the same.

  31. I would never purchase a real fur coat, but I'm all for thrifting one! I think of it as recycling, because it has already been bought. Recently, I went to my local Goodwill and found a FABULOUS rabbit fur coat that fits me like a glove and defines the waist with a little rope belt. I cannot wait to wear it!

  32. I totally thought of you just now when I saw that jacket, Bronny. LOL. Totally your style. You should get it!

    but they don't ship to Canada, so I guess I am out of luck :(
    Sigh. Anyone know of any other e-retailers (who have int'l shipping) with something like this? I am dying to have it!
