Faux Fur Feels

Sometimes your outerwear needs a bit of jazzing up and the universe was hearing that when I scored this faux fur jacket from Zara for $50. I’ve been on the hunt for one for a few years, but I couldn’t bring myself to spend (in my standards) an extravagant amount and I didn’t want one that looked obviously inexpensive. I turned to thrift and second hand stores for a while, but they have a way of never having anything in my size (is every woman in NY between a size 0 and 6??), so I waited it out and I’m so glad that I did! I feel kind of ridiculous and fabulous at the same time with each wear and sometimes that’s just the way fashion goes.

Since this particular jacket sold out pretty quickly, I’ve rounded up my favorite alternatives:

Numph Gitte Faux Fur Jacket
Vero Moda Tall Faux Fur Jacket
Selected Selvia Faux Fur Jacket

Moral of the story: good things come to those who wait, but once you find the one, jump on it!

Leather & Sweater Weather

On a warmish winter day in the Northeast it’s sometimes extremely difficult for me to figure out how to dress for the weather. Coat or no coat? Tights or bare legs? Long sleeves or sleeveless?

Similar to fall, layering goes a long way when it comes to feeling cozy and weather appropriate. Winter decided to take a break last weekend and hit us with a bit of warmth. Spring is, indeed, in the air. I eventually decided on a sweater dress, a faux leather jacket, and leather over the knee boots for my transitional outfit as I strolled around the city with my boyfriend.

My favorite piece of the getup is the badass Calvin Klein boots that I randomly found these boots on major clearance at a Backstage Macy’s store (sadly, no where on the interwebs has it as cheap). Let me tell you, even though they do not look like it, THESE BOOTS WERE MADE FOR walking, and I spent my Saturday doing just that!
