Can you say “Falling for Faux Fur in Fall” 10 times quickly? Bet you can’t! Can you say faux fur fan? I sure can because I’ve been a huge fan of faux fur for a while now. I’ve been eyeing several faux fur coats and vests but the ones that I’ve liked in the past have been out of my price range. I remember a couple of years ago, I had found one at Saks while shopping with a friend. It was the end of the season so it was marked down to 60% off the original price but even then it was still not within the price range I was comfortable with. I showed it to my husband and he said I was crazy for wanting to buy it. Speaking of which, do your husbands, or significant others, have a say in your wardrobe? How much influence do they have?
I do ask my husband for his opinion on my clothes every once in a while but, for the most part, his input doesn’t seem to have much influence in my final decision, unless it’s a matter of something being too short or revealing. In those cases, I do give his input some consideration, but otherwise I stick to my guns. For example, I bought this Vince sweater jacket on sale last year and he said I should return it because it made me look fat. I know, he really said that. I didn’t listen to him and I have to say it was one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I wear that thing almost every day. It’s so warm and cozy I don’t want to take it off! Sometimes you just have to trust your instincts.
But I digress, I found this faux fur vest at Nordstrom Rack on my way out. I went straight back to the cashier and bought it without even trying it on. I tried it on when I got home and it fit perfectly. I love the fact that the back is knitted like a sweater, which makes it easier to layer. Oh yeah, this was another item my husband disapproved of but I have a feeling it will be getting a lot of wear this fall.
