I adore a yummy fur. I own both real and faux, but I comfort myself with the knowledge that I only buy vintage or recycled real fur — that gives me some points, right? right?!

How To Wear Fur

To move on, fur (real or faux) is a fantastic part of fall and winter dressing. Just look at how Sarah Jessica Parker wears a fur coat in any winter scene of Sex and The City. Whereas in the past, fur screamed luxury and elegance, fur is hollering fun glamour today. In the colder areas, throw on that fur coat with your ponte leggings and water proof riding boots. For the warmer areas, feel free to put that coat over a tank dress and some heels and have fun with it. If you are cold enough to wear it, wear it. I wear my shin length beige coat with a giant detachable fur collar all around San Diego if I am cold. Sure no one else in San Diego is doing it, but isn’t that the point?

My favorite places to buy vintage, used, and recycled fur are listed below…

  1. Vintage shops: there is always a rack of fur in any good vintage shop.
  2. Ebay
