Let me just start by saying, it’s freezing in Chicago right now! This is definitely when you ask yourself, “Why the heck do I live here?”. I think the high today was 11 degrees and that was at 3 o’clock and without the windchill! My philosophy is if you’re going to bear the cold, you might as well do it in style! And I can’t think of anything more stylish than a fur coat. Whether you’re into genuine or faux fur, there’s just nothing like the luxurious feel and warmth of a fur coat.
I found this coat on a summer trip to Mont Tremblant, a ski resort village in Quebec, Canada. I was taking a stroll through the pedestrian village and just “happened” upon a fur store. For kicks and grins, I decided to take a quick look through the clearance rack and this coat caught my eye. I immediately fell in love with it’s unique styling – isn’t the fringe amazing? And how lucky for me, it was just my size! I was told it had recently been worn in a runway fashion show and that’s why it was marked down – WAY DOWN! It was the deal of the lifetime, so it didn’t take much talking into for my husband. I’ve had it for three or four years now and I love it as much as the day I bought it. It sure brightens a cold grey winter’s day!
If you’re thinking about a fur coat, they’ll soon be starting mark-downs. Here are some faux and genuine fur coats that I love:
