What’s Fur Got To Do With It?

Remember when faux fur was a fashion faux pas? Well, not anymore! It’s a win-win situation for us, ladies. Why is that? 1.) It has less of a strain on our pockets. 2.) We won’t have to dodge paint thrown by P.E.T.A. advocates!!! I have fallen victim to the faux fur vests! I bought my first one last year and one this year. I love how versatile they are. You can wear them with anything from jeans to dresses… Blouses to t-shirts… Even solids to patterns! The only drawback I have is that the little Acrylic fiber-creatures get everywhere sometimes. Other than that, it can take an outfit from drab to fab in .2 seconds. The vests are available in several lengths, so have fun. You don’t have to limit yourselves to fur vests. You can add a little pizazz with the fur collars, coats, hats… OR, you can be the apple-bottom-jeans-boots-with-the-(FAUX)-fur girl. (Please, 86 the apple-bottom jeans though)! Remember, fur is a HUGE statement by itself! So, DON’T OVER-DO IT! I personally wouldn’t wear a FUR vest and FUR boots, with a FUR hat to match! Can you say GRIZZLY-CHIC gone wrong?!
I think Rachel Zoe looks AWESOME in her vest! I just had to include her in this post. Rumor has it that she gave faux fur its relevance… I’m not so sure about that, but she definitely ROCKED this look!

I’m often told that I‘m missing my calling… I have an exhilarating enthrallment with fashion! (And I DO mean EXHILARATING)!!! I don’t have a favorite designer believe it or not. However, I do admire the artistry of many. Fashion for me is not about labels. That’s not to say that I don’t indulge in them at times. I just think it’s MORE important to understand the basics and looking great at whatever price-point that fits your lifestyle! My family (including my Chihuahuas), friends, bargain shopping, arts, music, food, travel, and inspirational people/quotes make my life blissful . I also sprinkle myself with celeb gossip, nostalgic television and (trashy) reality TV shows. If you have any questions for me or would like my opinion on anything, please email me at sprinklesofbliss.gmail.com. Thanks for reading!

    Help me pick one out….so I don'tgo wrong…yup, this "might" be on the list for our shopping date! Maybe….because this fashion has scared me, so….maybe! I'll def need a "Shekerra Shop-a-long" for this one!

  2. You will be fine! I am looking forward to our shopping date, as well. We'll go for a simple color, like black! That way it's not so intimidating.
