A Fur Thing

Photobucketnullnullnull

Good morning, loves! And happy mid-week to you all!

I'm happy to report that today I'm feeling much better than yesterday. Yeah the sweets do help, don't they? Also, I had a chance to see Priscilla Queen on the Desert on Broadway last night and I had an absolute ball! And I actually got pulled on stage to dance to a number. It was quite the experience! My Broadway debut! LOL. If you're in NYC or wherever else it may be playing I highly recommend it. It definitely turned my mood around!

Another thing making me happy these days is fur. Well faux in my case. I just can't get enough of it. I've had pieces for years but this year there seems to be an explosion of faux fur in my closet and in my home. Vests, scarves, collars, neck warmers, gloves, throws, hats, bags, earmuffs, the collar on my coat. You name it, I have it.

I can't get over the look and the feel. It just makes me happy! In fact, just the other day while I was having a not so great moment, I found myself petting the fur vest I was wearing {please don't judge :)}. Strange but true, I know. But I found it comforting like a child would or something. Go figure.... :)

How bout you all? Embracing fur these days? If so, I'd love to know what pieces you have.

Enjoy the day, sweets!

xoxo

Love faux fur and have the cutest faux fur vest I have been wearing a lot lately...its so good looking but light weight and not offensive to anyone!

So happy your feeling better, love! You go girlfriend and your big debut... your gonna have producers at your door in no time! :) Guuuurlfriend... faux fur is just fabulous and I know what you mean, it's like on steroids this season. Good news, it's a classic and will be around forever. I'm loving how it's being used in interior spaces... I'm dying for a big, white, furry rug at the moment! Loving this post, you and those ta'die for shoes!! xo

This fur trend is so cute, I think now that summer is approaching it will be hard to let them go back to the back of the closet :p

I'm glad you are feeling better, Dawn... and how cool you had your own Broadway show :)
I'm totally in fur - real one especially, which is why I've got to (alive!) cats to cuddle. xoxo

I loved the movie, so I can only imagine the musical is just as hilarious. How fun to be pulled on stage!

Tamra said...

So jealous! I've been wanting to see Priscilla Queen of the Desert!! It's on my list to do within the next few months. I heard its amazing!!!!

Glad you are feeling better! I think I might need some chocolate then too, not feeling my best.

my favorite blankie is our fur one from pottery barn. I love getting it out in the cold months, bella loves it too!

Noe @ ADELLA AVENUE said...

What an unforgettable experience!

A little faux fur works for me. I love those shoes.. I don't know if I'd ever want to take them off!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

I can't wait to throw on some faux fur when I return to cool weather soon!

Punctuation Mark said...

i really want to get one of those fur throws from Pottery Barn... so soft!

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

I have a faux fur vest that I bought last year. I love how it easily goes from jeans to a dress and have an added warmth for this cold weather.

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

Yes, yes, and *YES*! There really isn't anything like the look/feel of fur (even if it's faux!)...it's divine! And I don't know where the necklace in the first shot is from, but I've got a major case of the gimmies for that little baby, too! (c: That is totally awesome that you got pulled on stage...even more awesome that you are feeling much better! (c:

shopgirl said...

That's so awesome that you enjoyed the show and what a mind-blowing experience! You must have been so surprised! And faux-fur is delish!

Glad you're feeling better Dawn!

hello fabulous fur!

Deidre said...

I'm not big into fur, faux or other wise! It makes me a little uncomfortable - but I can totally SEE the appeal :)

Fashion Tales.... said...

What a night it must have been, and on stage. The faux fur throws look quite comfortable, I will need to buy one soon.

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

all that fur looks so warm and cozy!

Maria Matiopoulou said...

Oh this is definitely one of my favorite trends. A faux fur always makes a space look stylish and warmer.

kristina said...

hi dawn! i too am loving fur at the moment! and there really is something very comforting about the touch of it! i used to pet cotton balls as a kid ha! so i don't judge you at all!! hope you're having a great week dawn!!
xoxo, kristina

Christel @ Captivated by image said...

Haha petting your own fur, well I can understand why thats comforting;) I love the bedroom in this post, gorgeous! And speaking of (faux) fur, I actually have very little of it. Its not really my thing, but I love a good fur trimming on something.
What a great night you must have had! Sounds thrilling to be up stage;)

notjustanothermilla.com said...

Thank you so, so much for featuring faux fur. It saddens me greatly to see so many people wearing fur, which I see as very cruel, particularly when there is such a cool animal-free product out there. Power to you!

Wedding dresses said...

Omg! I love the shoes.

Bromeliad said...

Glad you're better. Way too much faux fur in my life, but glad it's an official trend.
