fash•ion (fash-uh n) | faux fur

I lucked out last year when I scored this faux fur vest for a whopping $16 on super clearance at Nordies Rack.  It's become a staple in my closet simply because it can elevate an outfit from being mediocre to amazing.  No matter how scrubby my outfit may be, I can just throw this bad boy on and I immediately turn heads (yeah that's right). ;) I'm a huge advocate of all women owning some kind of faux fur.  Trust me - you'll feel glamorous.

|What are your thoughts on faux fur (or even real fur)? Is it something you're coveting this season?|

I like faux fur if it's done well (like it is here in your look). I also do wear real fur, but only if it's vintage. Somehow, it makes me feel less guilty...but all of it makes for a warm luxe look!

I haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet but I am coveting. I'd like a big plushy collar to throw on over my jackets!

I wasn't really sure about the faux fur vest trend UNTIL I spotted a really awesome one for $6 at a local thrift store. I was sold the minute I tried it on!

LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!! I totally agree with you - (faux) fur can take any outfit from drab to fab! I really love it and have lots of random stuff in my closet (that i've found on sale at f21). I actually have another faux fur post coming up!! I even have furry pillows and blankets in my house. Probably a little overboard, but it makes me happy! :o)

I love your vest...saw one at H&M when I was in NYC but resisted from buying. Now I kind of wish I did!

Fantastic find and love the faux fur vest! Just got one myself but not as much as steal as yours although reasonable! I haven't posted mine yet, you've inspired me to do so soon :). Are you going to the Chicago blogger event on Wednesday? Would love to catch up and see you again!
