Faux to Go!

Posted By: Terri

I’m a HUGE lover of faux fur. Faux is so fun,looks fabulous and if you play your cards right looks just as good if not better than the really thing except nobody (and I do mean all animals) gets hurt which is the number 1 reason for going Faux in the first place.

If you happen to be a little bored with your “everyday winter coat” usually made from wool or cashmere   and are looking to jazz up the winter outwear section of your closet, how about going for a fun faux jacket or coat? Let’s face it after January the Winter does seem to linger and we have got to have something to keep the pep in our step during the cold and dreary months of February and March.

A good faux not only keeps you warm (faux fur is a very dense fabrication and insulates your body heat from escaping-hence keeping you warm ),but it comes in a bevy of style and color options. In addition, since we are heading into Spring in stores many faux coats are on SALE! Our favorite four letter word. Maybe it’s time for you to Go Faux.

I’m a Coat-a-holic

The majority of my early years (Age 0-30) were spent in cold climates. I remember bracing the weather in Madison, Wisconsin, as I walked to my final exams in collage with temperatures    reporting in at 40 degrees BELOW zero with the windchill. Sooo, I understand COLD weather and have the frostbitten hands to prove it-quite frankly I don’t think they’ve ever recovered. During my formative freezing years I embraced the notion that even though the temps were dipping, my fashion savvy needn’t. Call me crazy, but I didn’t want to be so bundled up that I looked like a walking snowman or woman for that matter. I still wanted to be stylish in the snow. Enter… layers and my love for a really great and stylish winter coat.

I LOVE coats. A great wool or cashmere coat is key for staying warm and even though I now reside in LA where temts rarely dip under 30,I still have a closet full of coats in my closet and am always on the lookout for more. I’ve come to realize as I search winter coat sales that  I AM A COAT-A-HOLIC and can’t be cured-nor would I even want to be! If you like I LOVE a great coat then join the club and peruse the many FABU sales going on right now.

Here are a few silhouettes that look good on everyone, and are available at all price points in stores and on the web.
