Trend Watch Wednesday: Just Say Faux

What Goes Around Comes Around Natalia Jacket, BB Dakota Manderson Leather Jacket, DKNY Jeans Faux Fur Vest

Well heavens to Betsy, it's Wednesday, y'all. Two things:

1. I actually had a good friend/sorority sis in college named Betsy. Her name totally did NOT fit her at all, but the expression "heavens to Betsy" obviously makes me think of her...and smile : )

2. Thank you all for your very sweet comments and emails regarding my hair in the pic from last Saturday's post. I will likely not be dying my hair dark any time soon again, but I appreciate that you think I can bat for both hair teams...muchas gracias, chicas!

Hoo'kay...so, let's talk about faux fur. Love it or loathe it?

True. There is nothing more horrid or cheap-looking than bad fake fur. Nothing says "I work on the street corner" quite like a $10 mink jacket from The Icing.

But nothing says I'm cruel and heartless quite like wearing real fur. So basically it's a lose/lose. Unless you can find legit-looking faux fur.

Hard to do, but it can be done. Lemme show ya'.

  1. Absolutely love the Juicy Couture parkas..so cute and great for the winter! haven't purchased one of those yet but their fur lined vests are AMAZING! Love the blog girl!!


  2. My favorites are definitely the fur vests! They're everywhere this season!

  3. Faux fur has certainly come a long way just in the past couple of years. I'm loving those vests!

  4. Most definitely YAY. I just don't know how to pull it off...I need a personal stylist, aka YOU! Hope your week is going wonderfully and is flying by quickly :)

  5. I love the juciy vest!!! I have a beautiful faux fur that is INC!!

  6. I love this look! The leather one at the top is my fav xoxo

  7. favorites are in ALL THE FUR TRIMMINGS section. I have never been a fan of FAUX FUR all OVER jackets or vests although I have seen a few women pull them off with ease. just not my cup of tea. oooo tea sounds so lovely!!


  8. The angel side of me says no to fur... but I have to admit, my mom and I have matching fur coats and we wear them to walk the dogs (ridic, i know) but they are SO warm and amazing that i don't think i could get rid of it. as for much an in and out of style fur vest (which i do love by the way) or something, i couldn't do it. but a timeless long fur coat that i'll have for the rest of my entire life, i think that's okay. yikes, i hope people don't hate me :)

  9. I've been seeing these fur vests, correction - faux fur vests - but I'll be honest, I don't know if I could swing this particular trend. Might be a little to Zsa Zsa for me. I think Rachel Zoe looks good in hers though.

  10. YAY! I love them all.

    Now if the weather would just cooperate in Atlanta ...

  11. I love all of it! As long as it's not real fur...

  12. I picked up a faux fur trimmed vest and can't wait to wear it when the weather cools down!

  13. when i was about 6 years old, my parents bought me a (un-faux) fur coat for christmas. i felt so conspicuous in it every time i wore it, and we eventually gave it away. vests however, i could handle! :)

  14. Oh I want to snuggle up in any one of those right now! :)

  15. I am 100% YAY so long as it's faux. I own three real fur coats that belonged to my mother. After her passing I couldn't deal with the thought of someone else buying them, so I kept them. They were in our family for years so I had to keep them, but I don't see myself ever wearing them.


What'cha got?
