What's Not to Love Wednesday: Faux Fur

Faux Fur Parka

During the Glowology family Summer holiday to Greece, Stressed Husband and I were amazed at the shop selling furs in our hotel. Yes, fur! Not bikinis – or even mankinis – but hot, cosy fur! And it was at least 90c degrees. There were floor sweeping coats, short jackets, swingy capes, impossible-not-to-stroke gilets, hats and bags, all in a remarkable array of hues. I think it was real fur, so because of that, along with the fact there were no fur bikinis – imagine! – I didn’t feel inclined to make a purchase. I did however, realise there is no texture more glamorous than those silky strands of fur and that whoever you are, and no matter what shape, size or age, a woman has to have at least a little bit of it in her wardrobe…Faux Fur

I know I said a ‘little bit’ of it in her wardrobe, but that got me thinking – surely a ‘lot of it’ is even better? So, okay, I’ve got quite a lot of it as you can see above…there’s my twisted fur snood from Accessorize, which has a little bit of leopard print entwined, making it even more lovable to me! Then, there’s the fur headband and gilet which I picked up at the Spirit of Christmas Fair and can’t remember from which stall, but there are some great ones here at Joules and here at ASOS. Of course, I won’t be wearing them altogether, don’t worry, but my faux fur shopping fest really hit its pinnacle when I found the perfect parka (I’m wearing it in the pic above). And it’s here from River Island.
