Just Faux Fun


Faux fur is a look that tends to show up in the cooler months when chilly weather sets in. Vogue magazine reported that it was still going to be a popular trend for fall and winter of 2017. Pieces occasionally pop up at Goodwill and they are always a fun faux find.

This soft acrylic/polyester blend vest by Trocacci Blu in various shades of beige and gray was a cozy choice for a cool day. Blog2I paired it with corduroy skinny jeans in black and beige and a black v-neck blouse, both from Ann Taylor Loft. It would look equally as chic thrown on over a denim dress or with blue jeans and boots.

I rolled my skinny jeans, mostly because I am petite, but also because cuffed skinny pants and ankle boots is something I am seeing all over the fashion magazines and around town.Blog3My black suede boots from Indigo by Clarks are designed for comfort, yet are stylish with their stacked heel and lace-up front.

My accessories include a beige and black canvas bag from Thirty One, a direct sale company founded in 2003. Blog1According to their founder, Cindy Monroe: “Not only do our fashionable, functional products make life easier – they also help independent business owners across the country support their families and reach their dreams.” I wrapped up this look with a gold and black fringed necklace.
While I would not cover myself in faux fur, a few pieces here and there make a nice winter accent. I’ll be featuring a faux fur bag in my next post!

Note: All items except the blouse were purchased on 50% off Winter Sale day in January. Be sure to keep an eye out for their next sale and they are currently featuring $5 off a $30 purchase for Rewards members. See website for details!
