Faux Fur Me

I’m looking forward to riding out the rest of the winter in this sweater with a detachable faux fur collar...and throwing a dash of sequins into the mix doesn’t hurt. I also recently picked up this BB Dakota jacket on sale via ModCloth – under $40!!!! It’s like wearing a blanket.

sweater: ASOS / sequin dress worn as skirt: Tulle via ModCloth / nude wedges: Aldo / leggings: American Apparel / jacket: BB Dakota via ModCloth 

Here are a few other faux fur accent pieces (aka fashion eye candy).

And don't forget to enter my giveaway this weekend - just click here for the details.

We can also stay in touch via Twitter if you're so inclined...I'll be attending a performance of the ballet Romeo and Juliet and editing my dissertation (March 15 is the submission deadline and I plan to insist that everyone call me "doctor" after that) this weekend so, you know, I'll be saying all sorts of interesting things on Twitter. Or we could take a "tumble" together if that's more your scene.

Loving the faux fur items. Always adds a touch of glamour (and snuggliness) to an outfit.

Enjoy R&J (I'm jealous!)

I was considering that coat - it looks fab on you! and I'm all about luxe touches of fur and sequins. Life would be too boring without them.

I was at Kohl's yesterday and saw a Vera Wang faux fur shrug, but thought it was too warm for it already. I now regret not getting it. That fur collar is just too adorable! And oooooh that coat is lovely!

Ashleigh said...

Fur is Fun! As are sequins and $40 steals ;) I can't wait to call you Dr.!

Love the fur collar!...I've been wanting a fur accent piece forever now, and then I just kind of gave up...but since we're almost into spring I should scrounge the clearance racks for one. And it looks amazing with sequins!

I really love the sequins paired with the sweater and fur - and fur is just so glam. it's possibly my favorite thing about winter.
