let the faux fur fly...

fur is a tricky trend. i once purchased a vintage fox fur coat from eBay and everytime i ran my hand down its super soft sleeve i felt sick with guilt. anytime my eyes met with the coat i had flashbacks of the children's short story by paul jennings. it was something about a fox fur hanging in the closet and a boy leaves lemons for it each night and one by one the lemons bring the fox back to life and then it disappears off into the night. why the elixir to life is lemons i can't remember, i'll have to go find the story but the notion that my coat could grow legs was too much for me and but needless to say i re-listed the coat. my problem is i looove the look of fur, it's rocknrolla-kate moss-decadence and this season it's everywhere from our necks draped with fur snoods to the shearling on our booties. we will be giving big foot a run for his money.

my next mission was to find a faux that didn't look cheap and like something that the cat dragged in. this took awhile. after months of searching i came up with a few that have have really out done themselves.

rachel zoe's line (pictured in one of her designs above) is amazingly well down. decadent and lush with an amazing fit and price point. ie the coat pictured is now on sale for US $137.64.

the hiccup for us australian buyers is QVC only ships to the US. however being the style savvy sisters that we are, there is always eBay and if you're extra resourceful like me you phone a friend in san fran and get it here on a stop over!
