The nights feel later earlier and those not-so-vague hints that summer is nearing an end are becoming apparent. My summer sandals and getting pushed further to the back of my closet (I’m organized, I know), cashmere cardigans are breaking lose for the crisp evenings on the deck and that fashionable season of
fur Fall is at our fingertips.
Be warned. We are in store for a fur frenzy. A FURENZY. Coats, collars, hats, scarves and handbags. Striped, dyed, embossed and manipulated. Fur was everywhere on the runways last February proving it’s back by designers with a -don’t care, PETA who?- vengeance.
Before anyone gets upset, the use of fur in fashion is inevitably recurring. Its timeless and the uncertainty of there ever being a middle ground with fur and fashion will age unresolved, as it stands the debate between it being natural and renewable as opposed to being inhumane and cruel to animals. Happily for everyone, no matter what your beliefs are anyone can enjoy the look of fur, perhaps just not the ridiculously warm and regal “feel” of genuine fur with faux or recycled.
I chose some stand out pieces from NY I am severely crushing on. Some may be slightly pretentious on a day-to-day basis but stunningly luscious to look at. Unfortunately, my bank account can’t take an 4K hit at the moment
or ever, as beautiful as they are.
Here are some reasonable options so we can all get in on this ferocious trend, in a budget and moral friendly way. All images via Nordstrom.

I appreciate and lust for genuine fur, there are many misconceptions in the billion dollar fur industry. However, I do also appreciate people’s feelings and opinions on the super sensitive issue.
Are you a fur feline?
