Faux Real

December 14, 2017

The first snowpocalypse has hit the midwest.

Winter is here!

Luckily, I took snapped these photos prior to the 8 inch snow fall. Despite the lack of snow in the pictures, this jacket is perfect for snowy days or nights! Now, when shopping for a [faux] fur coat, or any textured coat, to be honest, you have to consider your frame. For me, I am petite, so finding the perfect coat that isn’t too overwhelming can be difficult. However, when I do find my ‘perfect match’ its as if the lights from shopping heaven are beaming over me and it makes my day! [it’s the small things…you get it]. For me, when looking for textured coats, my tips are: keep it cropped and not too full. I typically don’t look for coats of this type that go past my waist. However, if you’re taller, by all means, a midi coat would be AH-MAZE-ING! Always keep in mind your daily function and body type when choosing coats. [Like, I know my sister Jennifer loves this coat, but with kids, light colors aren’t so practical. She opts for deeper hues].

Any way, what could make finding the perfect faux fur coat even more amazing? When it’s on SALE! I found this Helmut Lang faux fur [shaggy] coat on sale [SCORE!]. I love the feel and the color. It goes with everything and I always get so many compliments on it.

Apprehensive about trying something a little bulkier? Stick to our motto; for trends, purchase inexpensive options so as not to feel guilty if the look just isn’t your thing. If you absolutely LOVE oversized, textured coats, perhaps make an investment…and rock the look! We’d love to see!

Happy Shopping!
