With the Thanksgiving holiday approaching in less in two days, US side, visions of sugar plums are definitely dancing in my head. Regarding my favorite time of the year there a few trends and looks, that to me, embody the spirit of the holidays. Festive plaid prints, sparkle and sequins, sumptuous velvet, cranberry red hues and fur. This last one has been calling my name a lot lately. Fur collars, chunky sherpa coats, shearling vests- all a testament to how much I am into this cozy outerwear style, even if it means I'm usually the only one in the room with a purple faux fur wrap and a cashmere floor length coat on. 

So of course when French Connection asked me to pick a sample from their latest holiday collection, I picked the faux fur coat! The ladylike silhouette reminds me of a time when ladies really went all out, gloves on, hair perfectly coiffed, lacquered lips and nails- the works, or as they would say "the norm." I wanted the coat to really standout so I toned the look down with skintight black denim, nude pumps and a slick back hairdo. I'd categorize this as my un-holiday, holiday look. How are you dressing up or dressing down for the holidays this year?

  1. Could you be any cuter? I love that faux-fur coat! I'd take it off your hands if you needed me too. Oh and I'll have the purple faux fur wrap of yours too! xoxo
