Winter Glamour





{Faux Fur Coat ~ Gallery (brand) via Nordstrom / Tweed Trousers ~ Lane Bryant - last seen here / Ivory Blouse ~ Vintage/Thrifted / Shoes ~ Isaac Mizrahi for Target / Leather Gloves ~ Moschino Chic and Cheap / Handbag ~ LV Paris Speedy Cube}

Although I have lived in Philly all of my life and we have always experienced some really harsh winters, whenever the cold temps hit, I am completely overwhelmed.  I prefer the warmer weather for sure, but since I have to deal with the COLD, I had to do it...

...pull out this warm and cozy faux fur that is so near and dear to my heart. I feel absolutely glamorous when I slip into this coat.  And I have to say, I get so many compliments, it's really crazy.  Everywhere I go, I have complete strangers rub me and tell me how pretty this coat is.  These pictures do it no justice at all. 

What's weird is, I almost always want to blurt out that it's FAUX when I get a compliment.  I don't know if it's because I don't want people to think that I am wearing a REAL (read: ridiculously expensive) fur OR that I am blatantly wearing an animal on my back and flaunting it.  My husband's take (and mine, really): WHO CARES what people will think? :) 

What is your stance on furs or faux furs?  Yay or Nay to real fur?

When I took these pics today, I seriously thought my fingers were going to be frost-bitten.  These leather gloves are clearly for "fashion" only.  I probably need to get a pair of lined, warm gloves for these frigid temps.  It barely made it out of the 20's today. And it isn't even {officially} winter yet. BRRRR!


xoxo, thanks for reading!

  8. Yes! I caught a glimpse of you yesterday and was hoping this would become a post :) You were entering the elevator and it was like a scene from an old movie--straight-up effortless, grown woman glamour!

    Love the look in its entirety. Goin' kuh-ray-zee over that bag and laughing about the gloves. I got so angry last year I gave away ALL my fashion gloves in a huff. Even though I am not thrilled by the limitations that cashmere-lined gloves create, I do love me some warm fingers.

    Oh, and fur. I prefer the faux. I can't tell if it's just 'cause I've been conditioned by animal activists' media onslaughts or if it's because the country girl in me can't reckon I'd pay that kind of money for somethin' that's so totally dead.

  9. Super adorable as usual!

    I say nay to real fur...well....if it's vintage then yay (it's already been dead for years...and probably super glam) but nay if it's brand new. I find real fur in today's world just completely unnecessary--especially when faux can look so real.
