I have never been a fur fan. When I used to play dress up at my grandmother’s I would put on her pelts, and I knew they were supposed to feel luxurious, but I just didn’t get it. Fake fur was even worse –- it wasn’t that soft and was kind of itchy actually. I’m sure growing up in the South had a lot to do with why I didn’t see the point; a Georgia winter requires little more than a thin, merino sweater and a lined wool coat.
I don’t know if last winter’s blizzard changed my mind or if I’m just that influenced by Marie Claire and Ann Taylor LOFT, but by golly I’m a total fur convert (faux of course – no Nolis made into a coat for me thanks). It's not scratchy anymore and feels so incredibly luxe. Plus, if your workplace is ultra-conservative like mine, you'll have fun shocking onlookers wearing boring navy blue suits. Here are some of my faves of the season (that are actually within my budget -- all under $100).
