Faux Fur

Plainly put: the fur industry is disgusting. I strongly feel that if fur-wearers watched what happened to an animal while it's being skinned, they might never wear fur again. That being said, some people just don't care and never will and all we can do is try to show them another way. I have a fabulous faux fur coat I got an Nordstrom Rack years ago, it's gorgeous and warm and I proudly state, "It's faux" every time some one compliments it. As the weather starts to get chilly, let's take a look at some other options.


Silk & Sable


Happy Friday!

Some super cute scarves from Old Navy.


Fall Preview - Victoria's Secret

I just got my Fall Preview VS catalog yesterday, and was thrilled at all the vegan-friendly options.

Take a look at my favs:


My New Winter Coat

I just ordered my new winter coat today. Searching high and low for a warm, vegan-friendly coat is not easy. I was just looking at the clearance section in Chadwick's and came upon this fabulous find. Look at that deal!

And as soon as I can splurge on part two, I will.


SATC: Redo!

Sex and the City is my favorite television show of all time. I feel like I'm friends with Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha and Miranda (although if I was I would insist they stop wearing fur...which they would of course because they wouldn't want to upset me).

Anyway, on May 30, 2008, when the first movie released, I had grand plans for what I would be wearing to opening night. But, I had a terrible day at work that day, got home much later than anticipated, it was pouring rain and I had about 5 minutes to get ready. So all I managed to do what put on my super cute shoes.

But when SATC 2 is released the spring of 2010.....I will be ready. Oh YES! I will be ready.

(I will also be going with my godmother instead of poor R, who was literally 1 of 3 men in the sold out theatre. He is such a good sport!)

I have already started my Carrie-inspired outfit search (which to me means the cutest possible thing I can find that is totally unconventional and fabulous). I don't think I will have to go too far, because I have one fantastic contestant already!
I literally cannot wait! Stay tuned....


Fall Fantasies

This has been the oddest summer weather in Chicago history.
I am declaring that a fact.
So, I've been just fantasizing about fall fashion. Hearing my call, olsen Haus posted their Fall 2009 collection.



What's with this wool/silk/cashmere blend cardy trend? When I purchase a cardy, I usually like to be able to throw it over anything and everything, and a perfect material to do that with is cotton. Now....a tribute to the cotton cardy.

Abercrombie (don't ask what I'm even doing on their website)
