Fur Sure


Good Thursday morning, lovelies! It looks as if the weather is going to be taking a turn for the cold in the near future and I find myself dreaming of ways to stay warm and toasty. Inside and outside. I love fur coats and fur throws. Problem is, I don't wear real fur. Only faux and it's not quite as toasty as the real thing but it will have to do. At least it's nice and soft and looks fabulous.

How about you all? Do you wear real fur or are you a faux girl?

Hope you all have a fabulous day! xoxo

LOVE these! I am all about some fur, and I don't have any real fur but if someone presented me with a real, super-luxurious mink jacket I MIGHT consider it! XX!

Stacey said...

Fur sure:-). Love the title and i'm a faux girl. Beautiful images! XX

I admit I bought 3 years ago in Brussels in a tiny barn shop an old fur jacket! But if I had to buy something new... no!
I just bought it, because it was a real bargain and the vintage thing:-)))

Debby said...

Dawn, breathtaking images... day after day... how do you do it?!! Love your blog. I love faux... I really wanted a coat w/ a faux fur collar but just couldn't find the one I had envisioned... don't you hate that? I wish I had been a clothing designer than I could make all the lovely things I dream about... the only problem is I can't sew to save my life! xo

style'n said...

faux fur but honestly I am just not into the fur trend for clothes. I have seen others wear it so well and with style but somehow I have not done it yet. I do adore these images though!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Faux fur though I have a few rabbit scarves I got as gifts and they are luxurious!

Isabel said...

i dont own any fur, real or faux. but i am kinda loving the trend.

tanvii.com said...

I do not have any fur either. Faux of otherwise. It is lovely to see it on others though! All cozy and cuddled up!

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

im a faux girl but i don't think i'll be wearing fur anything this winter as i just moved to the south. far too warm for it!

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

Hello Darling, I love these bright and cozy photos. I actually do not own any fur at all! Someday that my have to change because it looks so luxurious. Probably will go with faux!

Have a beautiful day! ♥

Loving these photos! I would like to say I'm a faux girl but the only piece of fur I have is real. It was gift, does that count?

Jude said...

Hope your morning is going beautifully, Dawn! I love all the light streaming through these pictures, so pretty :) I have to go with faux girl, but sadly the only piece I ever had was also real (and also a gift!)

coolkids said...

I am not feeling great today and I am freezing! I just want to lay on that bed with one of those lovely fur blankys. LOL.

Nikki said...

honey my heart said...

i would love a faux fur throw :) can't do real fur.

Valerie said...

I'm dying over all the fur everywhere these days. I just "borrowed" my mom's faux fur coat from the 70s and I can't wait to wear it! Now I just need it to get really cold here. Haha. Hope you're having a great day!

Marcie said...

I recently went to dinner with a friend who had real fur and there was no feeling like it! It was the softest thing, ever!! I loved it, but won't be buying it anytime. I prefer faux.

Thanks for the birthday wishes!!
Love these photos too!

Diana Mieczan said...

I am a faux girl for sure...Those photos are so dreamy:) I love them:) Kisses,sweetie pie

Sarah Klassen said...

I admit, I wear real fur, but never new, just vintage. I don't believe in killing animals for the sake of wearing fur, but on the other hand, if we do not keep the fur that has been made into pieces, it will end up in the landfill -- causing far worse of a problem in my mind. I do have a faux fur caplet and blanket though -- they are new. Fur is so luxurious and especially beautiful during this time of the year :)

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend, lovely lady, xoxo

SabinePsynopsis said...

How beautiful are these pictures! Real fur is wonderfully warm, which can be necessary in some climates (e.g. NY winters ;), but I'd find it difficult buying a fur coat (and not only for financial reasons). Inherited or 2nd hand I'm okay with though. xoxo

and flowers pick themselves said...

i've never worn fur of any kind. it's never really been my style.

:)

hope you're having a fabulous day, my dear!

Annie said...

This really makes me want to be in a cozy bed right now! I'm soo sleepy today!! Hope you're having a great Thursday XO

this free bird said...

Oh Dawn this is such a dreamy post. Sigh.

You always find the best pictures. I do love the fur - faux for me (there once was a rabbit that claimed my heart so that was the end of that). But I will take faux fur any way I can get it!! Wish I had a light colored throw...

xoxo,
Carrie

MarchMusings said...

I don't own anything in fur - faux or real- but from these photos I can see the appeal.

Alleen said...

I came home from appointments today and immediately threw on cozy pj's...crazy, I know! I would love to be snuggled in those blankets!

Both real and faux fur for me...parents bought me a fur coat when I was young and they bought me another one when I turned 30 BUT I buy and wear faux!!!

xoxo

The October Issue said...

wow I love everything in the 2nd photo.That pillow is pretty!

Charlotta Ward said...

Hello my friend.
Beautiful inspiration as usual and yes, I love fur. Though I would not buy a real fur throw, I have nothing against buying skins of sheep, cow or reindeer.. Is that weird..? Hmm...

Styles 'n Cream said...

I love faux fur everything - vests, collars, hats, coxy throws ... yes, please. Can I live in that gorgeous living room? I can't get enough of that room ...

Nell said...

Oh, how i'd love a fedora like that! Been searching everywhere with no luck, darn it! Have an awesome weekend lovely xx

The Simply Luxurious Life said...

Absolutely stunning images. I want to cozy up on the sofa and in that bed. :) I hope you are able to find some time to put your feet up with weekend. Sounds like you are going to be pretty busy.

I'm craving a big fur throw myself.
