just faux fun

I couldn’t help it, readers! I LOVE a fashion pun! But, for real, the real deal, these faux fur shoes are just too fun. And everyone has amazing feedback to fur on shoes, from “those remind me of a muppet…in a good way!” to “those just look like a party…so festive!” To me, they felt like Cinderella’s glass slipper; they just brightened my day right up. It’s, faux real, the little things in life. (see what I just did there?)

Sweater: Sweet Romeo via Nordstrom Rack ($20 marked down from $78) (still on their website and now for $14!)

Jacket: Ann Taylor via thrift ($3, retails for approx $180)

Pants: Banana Republic ($17 marked down from approx $90)

Necklace: Argento Vivo via Nordstrom Rack ($17 marked down from $68) (also still online! and now $13!)

Shoes: Misguided via Asos ($35 marked down from $60)

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) Perhaps somewhat surprising, I have not yet checked out the post-holiday sales. But, I have heard good things from very reliable sources (i.e. my friends), that now is the time to get things on sale that you had been eyeing throughout winter. And, certainly that makes sense for retailers. They generally will mark down many items after everyone has done their holiday shopping. So if you were waiting for a good price for an item, now might be the time to go check it out! 

2) Nordstrom Rack’s website has really impressed me lately. While I tend to shop in person, their website really is great. In fact, I paid more in the store for my sweater and necklace than was listed online. I am sure Nordstrom would likely honor online prices if you can show the reduced online price. Had I been more savvy that day, I would have done so right then and there! So, I would say perhaps this is a store you want to consider opting for online!

Anyone else enjoying the faux fur trend lately? I hope everyone had a great holiday and is ready for the beginning of a wonderful New Year!

  1. Great look! Those shoes are too cute and I bet they are so much fun to wear! Faux fur is so perfect for winter and I just love all the different and fun colours this season.

  2. I love your punny title, and even more so – those shoes! I don’t think of Muppets at all! I love how it can instantly give some personality to an office outfit. Heck, it could prompt a conversation at the water cooler too! I’d be worried about the fur getting dirty though….
