Cozying Up With My Faux Fur Jacket

Cozying Up With My Faux Fur Jacket

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend filled with shopping, decorating and getting into the holiday spirit.  We finally got around to buying a tree and decorating the house and even managed some of our Christmas shopping.  I still have to buy some more gifts and I am trying hard to do most of it on line, but I know I will still have a few more trips to the stores for various bits and pieces.

During my time online and in the stores looking for gifts, I have noticed that fall 2014 has definitely been the year for faux fur jackets and vests.  This year they are everywhere in every color and shape and I LOVE all of them!  I have always loved women’s faux fur jackets and vests and even though sometimes its hard to wear fur in Los Angeles, I will always find a way to wear them even if it is over a t-shirt or tank top (which I have done in the past).

I am happy to say though that it has finally cooled down in Los Angeles and we even had some torrential rain last week.  That’s why going out last weekend, I knew it was a chance to wear one of my favorite faux fur jackets that I have not been able to wear much because it’s so hot. I bought this Graham & Spencer faux fur jacket last year at the end of the season when it was on sale and I only wore it once last year, so I was dying to wear it out this fall.  I really like this jacket because of its short sleeves, they are something different from other faux fur jackets, so it makes it in between a vest and a jacket.  I decided to wear it with my grey jeans and a simple long sleeve tee.  This is a very good example of what a great jacket can do to a simple outfit.  You can get this effect with most faux fur jackets and vests.  As soon as you put one on, they just make your whole look chic and glamorous.

Before I run out and do some more Christmas shopping, I wanted to let you know that we are having our end of the season sale on our web site.  All our jackets are now up to 50% off the original price.  I hope you take advantage of this sale, I really feel some of my jackets would make great gifts and we offer Free Shipping accross the USA and we ship worldwide.

  2. What a beautiful fur vest, and the accessories are just an extra bonus. You look great! I am glad you were able to get some decorating done too, we have toddlers in this house, so decorating is normally a no-go inside the house at least except for a tree of course. Hope you have a great week. Rachel xo

  8. Nora, I love this style!! I have been looking at the faux fur, and dont always go with trends, but this looks so good! I love this as the shape is not boxy,and as u said short sleeve. I am in Charlotte, so I have one coat I havent worn yet because of the weather as well. I love the color and with the grey slim jeans it looks so good. I hope you are enjoying the Holidays
