Faking the Books

I call this outfit my "faux"-vorite. Ok, bad pun. But lest anyone think that a) I support animal suffering or b) I have a ton of money, please keep in mind that the fur jacket, leather pants, and suede wedges are all man-made. They also are all my favorite new additions to my closet.

I would have never pegged myself as a leather pants kind of gal, but after seeing so much inspiration on my daily blog list, I finally gave in and ordered a pair from Forever 21. They're surprisingly comfortable, even if I do get bizarre looks from my landlord. I've also been on this unstoppable search for a decent fur long-fur jacket and fate was on my side when I spotted this beauty at Urban Outfitters. Even better, it marked down $100! If there's anything I love more than obnoxious clothes, it's a good deal. Despite the 3/4 length sleeves, this coat is actually pretty warm. That's good news, since temperatures are hovering around freezing and we even got our first bit of legitimate snow this week. Here's to hoping for a white Christmas!
