Faux No!

Clearly I've been hanging around small children with speech impediments for far too long (c;

But the faux I'm talkin' 'bout is FUR.

Love the stuff...totally own the comfiest faux fur throw in the world. 

It's Awesome. With a capital "A".

Buuuuuuuut...I still haven't taken the plunge for the wardrobe. I'm not gonna lie, I'm chicken. 

Especially when I see it getting *rocked* by the rockstar glitteratti themselves:





(um, am I detecting a pattern that I'm obsessing over??? faux fur vest + bright color = Fabulocity)

Do you see what I mean about intimidation factor???

For me, the vests and collars are my favorite way to strut this stuff.

And then there are some terrible things...like these:





Seriously, Christian??? We had to go *there*???

I thought it couldn't get any worse with my fave shoe designer.

I was WRONG.

Behold:




Dude, C.L., you *desperately* need a vacay or sumthin', cause *gaaaaaahhhhh*...

When I need shoes for my Wizard of Oz "Cowardly Lion" costume, I'll give you a ring, m'kay???

I just figured this could be the humor to get my Monday off to a smiley start...what about you? 

Smiling or gagging or just completely loving??? 

So help me, if you say "loving", I'll..........

I love faux fur vests, but I haven't bought one yet...OMG those lion paw shoes are AWFUL!

I haven't succumbed yet to the vest but I do have a fur collar that I'm rocking some days with a plain coat. Sometimes I think C.L. makes shoes as a joke just to see if super wealthy people will buy them :-)

I have a faux fur vest that I LOVE. It's from the gap and reversible. So, one side is furry and the other side is cloth with a fur color. I wear it all of the time. In fact, my friends are probably sick of seeing it, but I'm not!

Haha, I love the lion shoes because they're funny but definitely not for everyday wear with a giant price tag.

I'm not a faux fur fan yet because I'm busty and it adds bulk that I don't need when worn in vest form, and the collars look too Alaska for me (in Texas). Maybe one day...

I finally took the plunge and got a vest!! I actually got it from Amanda's store. {re}cycled consign and design... maybe you should order one from her online store!! Then we could be twinsies!!

Those paw shoes are insane. I don't even understand!

Haha!! Wizard of OZ, its so true though. I am also more of an admirer than an actual wearer of the lovely faux fur, i think I could do that last vest though!
