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

    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 xohttp://dreamingenfrancais.blogspot.com

    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!

    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!XO – Marion

    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 : )Jennpassengerseatperspectives.blogspot.com

    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. (:
