Faux Real

Dress as top: Amour Vert, Elbow-patch blazer: H&M (old but similar or similar), Jeans: Forever 21, Heels: Gap (old but similar), Accessories: Karen Walker sunglasses, H&M faux fur (similar), J.Crew and H&M pins, Jimmy Choo for H&M, Club Monaco wrap bracelet and vintage bracelet, (kno)name Flektor watch (c/o), BCBG ring, Bombom dainty ring (c/o), 3.1 Phillip Lim bag

We're officially into the first weekend of November. Can you believe it? Now the craze of the holidays can officially begin. Coffee joints (*cough* Starbucks) have their holiday cups out, people are talking about their travel plans and lists for gifts are being checked. I'm never truly ready for the holidays. I just go with the flow as best as I can. 

This faux fur collar from H&M is one of those items that reminds me of holiday shopping with my mom when I was a kid. I have vivid memories of walking the downtown streets with her as we shopped. She would never call herself a fashionista but she had such amazing things - one item being a fur trim jacket. I loved holding her hand when she wore it since the material was so soft. Now that I'm all grown up, I'll settle for my faux fur. 

Happy Friday!

  27. Liking the grey jacket and pins.

    I agree with you on the faux fur. I've seen lots of great looking real fur in the vintage and thrift stores lately but I still can't wear it. Faux all the way.
