Hi Friends, yes it is faux. I am an animal lover and do not wear real fur. Although I do wear leather so perhaps that contradicts itself? Not really sure. The way I see it leather is already dead fur is usually the result of something living that was killed for a specific purpose. Anyways don’t mind me lol.

Hope everyone is having a great week. I will be having a giveaway which will start possibly on Sunday depending on how busy I am. I have a lot to get through this weekend as I really want to set up a proper portfolio so people can see my work all in one spot.

  1. I love the fun fur vest - it's really just an outgoing and fun pop to this!

  2. Loving how you belted that fur vest over the dress - so cute!

  3. I love faux fur vests! I've seen them on a ton of blogs, but when I went to purchase one - none were to be found!! So sad :-(


  4. I never thought about leather that way, but that makes me feel better - I always felt like maybe I was being a bit of a hypocrite since I refuse fur but love leather.

  5. Cute post! I love that you belted the fur, I recently covered "How to wear Fur Vests" because I wasn't blessed with thin, toned arms and fur vests have a way of adding lots of volume. The belt is a great trick for giving a waist to the look! Here's the post I mentioned where I styled a friend in a royal blue fur vest from Truth and Pride :)

    I also love fur-- real and faux. For those of us who are troubled with the "furry animal dilemma", Vintage Fur is a great way to have your cake and eat it too... More on my thoughts on the fur dilemma here:


  6. Okay I have major shoe envy over your awesome Docs! I am also loving every single on of those dresses from the previous post, so pretty!
    Happy Friday!
