It's snowing!!!! You know, I was just talking to my husband and mom the other day about how warm it was (it was 60 on Sunday!) and how we may not even have a winter...guess mother nature had a way of showing who's boss, while stuffing my mouth with snow, lol! I do get excited for the snowfall, but I must admit, once you have to drive and walk in it, it does become a bit annoying, ah...such pros and cons of living in NY, huh?!

These photos were obviously taken before the snow fell and I felt rather glamorous in this number; I mean fur (faux) has a way of making the ordinary girl like you and I, feel so luxurious, doesn't it? This one in particular is one of those flashy yet chic pieces I have, which has lasted me about 10 years! Can you believe it? 10 years ago faux fur bombers were all the rave and I loved it so much, I actually have it in black as well, that I kept it over the years and broke it out for the first time in what seems like forever! I was 17 when I was gifted this by my now husband, Eddie, and I feel that I just didn't know how to wear it back then and I'm thankful I kept it. On that note, fur pieces (I prefer faux), are one that can be kept for years and years. You never have to worry about them going out of style because they won't, they're classic, chic, and timeless. Three combinations that are essential to any true fashionista's wardrobe! 

If you're one who finds fur pieces a little too much or intimidating, there are sooo many options out there for you to grow in your comfort level with. You can simply start off with a fur vest, which I have a YouTube video on how to wear (WATCH HERE), which by the way is prompting me to do a video on how to wear fur coats. There are also so many colors to choose from, all of which exude different styles and vibes. I understand white can be a bit much, but it's perfect for all of you fashion lovers who love to make a lasting statement at fashion week or at an event. For everyday wear, try selecting more subtle colors, such as black and various shades of brown. 

I hope this post was of help! I now need to head out and drive in this mount of snow, not looking forward to it!
