Why I Wear Faux Fur











I love Faux Fur


I love faux fur! I feel like it's having a moment and is so on trend right now. I'm so thrilled that faux fur is in because I'm not into real fur even that of the vintage kind. Not sure if I shared this with you or not but I'm a vegetarian and animal lover. I love animals so much that I can't eat them and although I wear leather, fur just feels too close to the original animal for me. Am I the only one that wears vintage leather but cringes at the idea of wearing vintage fur?? BUT I'm totally okay and not judgmental at all with other people wearing real fur. Why do I love faux fur so much do you ask? Well, I love it because:

  1. It's so GLAM
  2. It keeps me warm and toasty on those cold winter nights 
  3. It's animal cruelty free 
I became obsessed with the look of fur two winters ago. I was mesmerized by a super stylish friend's long fur coat. I just LOVED how she looked in it. It made everything she wore so glam even when she wore it with jeans and sneakers. After seeing her wear her fabulous fur coat all winter, I decided that I needed one in my life. But a faux fur one of course. I got so lucky when I found this one and the one from my How to Wear a Beret post on Etsy.

I wore this fab long vintage faux fur coat from Etsy shop Go Go Vintage with my new favorite hat from Stella Dallas. I just had to wear it with my favorite sunnies from Friends NYC. I love the color palette of this outfit thanks to this soft pink silky blouse from Myron Street Vintage. It was warm enough to abandon socks for the day which I love so I wore my favorite Oxford that I scored from ASOS. I seriously need an intervention to help me stop wearing this vintage Dooney & Bourke purse so much. But it just goes with everything. Hehe. The same goes with these mom jeans from East Village Vintage Collective. I wear them way too much.
