Faux Get Me, Not

Atlanta has been unseasonably cold and I'm relishing in all its goodness. It was 23 degrees on Wednesday and it didn't occur to me to wear tights under these fabulous leggings my awesome mother found for me. Nor did I wear gloves. So, after 20 minutes of taking pics with my intern, my poor little fingers were like pretzel sticks...

About the fur coat. I still have mixed feelings about investing in a real fur. I have lovely fur hats and stoles, but not a coat. This particular faux one was on my wish hit list for about a month until it finally got marked down to a whopping $20! 

Score, smile, swoon!

I couldn't have been more happy, especially since my lovely right hand man took it out of my hands and got it for me. It was a great day. My decision to pair it with the mink hat that was kindly gifted to my a sweet old little lady in my hometown, was more or less to deal with a deep infatuation with furs, but deeper love of animal rights. Okay, I'm getting political and this is so not the place. :) 

I love my coat and I love my hat--all its realness, too!
