Faux Fur







Vest – Gossip Girl Collection
¾ sleeve shirt – Joe Fresh
Pants – Joe Fresh
Boots – Aldo (Also seen here and here)
Belt – Urban Behaviour

The faux fur fad is a trend that never really appealed to me.  Sometimes I think it comes off as a little bit cheap looking and I just wasn’t sure if it was a trend I wanted partake in.  But when I came across this vest, I couldn’t help myself, I had to have it!  I think this particular vest appeals to me because it’s not ALL fur.  I really like that it’s a woven vest that is a little roughed up.  The purposeful holes and loose threads with the only faux fur being on the trim make it a little different than most I’ve seen.  A little fur goes a long way, in my opinion.

What are your feelings on the trend? Yay or Nay?

XO Andrea

  12. I was a bit hesitant with the faux fur trend at first, too. I guess for me it depends on the piece and how it's styled! Love the way you styled yours xo

  24. Love the vest, it looks really nice on, def not cheap looking at all. I recently got a little fur stole that I;ve worn a few times but its so warm here right now so I'll have to wait til it cools down to get more use!

  27. Gorgeous vest! I love the loose knit paired with just the faux fur trim. Seems to be a nice balance (not too over-the-top).
    I actually am kinda picky when it comes to the faux fur trend. I tend to like pieces that aren't too overwhelming (looking like you're being eaten by your coat is not a good lock in my opinion! lol!)

    Just found your blog and love it!

  32. I feel pretty similar about fur. In most cases, I'm not a fan of the look, so I never jumped on the bandwagon. But I really do love your outfit! So I guess there are some exceptions : )

  35. I am still on the "no thanks" side of the faux fur trend (or real fur). I don't think I'll EVER find something that I look at and feel belongs in my wardrobe. That being said, you are looking quite lovely in your vest, so congrats on the find. (:

    From Brooklyn with love,
