What I'm Loving Right Now: Faux Fur Adorned Heels

What I'm Loving Right Now: Fluffy Heels

Hello! Right now, I can't get over how much I'm loving the fluffy, faux fur heel trend. These ladylike heels detailed with feminine poufs of faux fur are practically calling my name. There's something so dreamy, over-the-top feminine, almost princessy-prissy about this style of heels that I can't help but to love them. They're ridiculously impractical and I think that may be one of the reasons why I'm drawn to them. They represent the fantasy that fashion can portray. Not everything in fashion is practical (in fact, almost half of what is strutted down the runway is impractical) but fashion isn't about practicality, it's about fantasy, it's about imagination, it's about creating an aesthetic. And I think that this trend represents that flawlessly.

I probably won't be trying this luxe trend out because after all it is impractical and I'm on a college budget but if you're interested in trying out the trend, I love this pair and this pair of faux fur fluff-adorned heels.

Dressed to Kill

February 2016
February 2016

Hello! Ugh, I'm SO over this cold weather and the necessity of donning thick tights and faux fur coats everyday. Spring, where are you? I currently only have a few winter coats with me at school and I'm getting sick of wearing the same coats day after day. Wearing the same coats with the same style of tights day in and day out can give off the appearance of wearing the same (or at least very similar outfits) everyday. To distinguish my outfits from one another, I've been relying heavily on bold outfit details.

For this look, yet again, I slipped on another pair of basic black tights and grabbed my leopard print faux fur coat. However, I switched things up by pairing a blue and white porcelain print dress with the leopard print coat. This juxtaposition of patterns creates an eye-catching look. 

I also played around with my accessories for a sort of young, quirky hip vibe. I took on the bandana neck scarf trend and tied a navy blue bandana around my neck to accentuate the blue in the print of my dress. I added a swipe of red lipstick for a bit of an all-American red, white and blue feel. However, this look didn't quite feel complete so I decided to have some fun with this look and grabbed a few quirky vintage buttons including a "dressed to kill" button. I love the small but vibrant bursts of energy that the buttons emit. These retro buttons definitely keep this look from being anything but boring!
