fall for fur

I was hating on fall a few days ago, but as I thought more and more about how dressing up is at it's most fun this season ... well I guess you could say I've warmed up to the idea. I have a deep yearning for some fur to nonchalantly throw over my fall outfits right now, thanks to this Marie Claire editorial:


The looks are so chic but also utterly comfortable. I love the effortless élan of it all—the scarves and the fur toppers have the feeling of being haphazardly thrown on yet they are perfectly placed all the same. So where I was once furrowing my eyebrows in confusion at all the fur vests cropping up in stores, now I think, "Why not?" Saks has two very cute options in faux and genuine varieties. Can you guess which is which?


If you guessed the vest on the right, then you're correct! For $448, you get a two-in-one vest from LaRok. One side is this plush lambswool and the other is an embroidered suede that's a tad too folksy for my taste. The one on the left is an acrylic/polyester blend by Joie, priced at at $318. I think the price is asking a bit too much considering it is faux, but I do like the style of it more than the LaRok vest.

The truth is, if I was gonna buy anything fur, it would probably be one of these:


These beauties are by Adrienne Landau at Saks. I am particularly in love with the racoon fur loop on the left which sells for $240. The raccoon fur warmer on the right is way attainable at just $175. But the fur loop is totally calling my name ... let's let the weather cool down a wee bit more, and then we'll talk Adrienne, then we'll talk ...

It captured me too! I have been obsessed with them since last winter but I finally cashed out and bought one for myself. The pictures of it will go up on my blog tomorrow morning. You should totally indulge and get one! I don't think I am capable of taking mine off now :)

Love Love love the grey vest! One of my colleagues has a mink coat that was passed down to her from her aunt.....just gorgeous! I would seriously save up the $15-20K to have one of those things, especially during one of our famous canadian winters....
