The Touch, the Feel

of faux fur.... lol


I have wanted a faux fur for some time and thought about making one for just as long.  However, I never got around to making one.  With the wedding fast upon me like the next day, and wanting to wear one with my dress, and being that I had to make a pit stop at Burlington Coat Factory annnnnyway, it was the perfect opportunity to buy one. 



Burlington Coat Factory use to carry a large selection of faux furs, but guessing they are not in high demand as they use to be.  The faux fur inventory was scarce, but there were sufficient puffy coats and wool coats.  Mixed in the lot of coats were a measly few faux furs and there squashed between a faux mink look alike and a sable faux fur was a cute black one.  Tried it on and it was perfect.



Now, I was ready to attend the wedding.   The wedding was beautiful and had a great time.  Omygoodness there were so many people that after a while I escaped to the children room... Yes... I did... it was too crowded. There was a period of dodging cake... The kids had cake everywhere, if it wasn't being eaten, it was smeared on tables, chairs, hair & on clothes...lol



Of course, the one pic that was taken of the bride and me is blurry with a mix of someone's shoulder and the back of someone's big head... umm yeah. 



The coat was perfect, the temps had dropped last nite and I was as snug as a bug in a rug.



Have a Great Week Everyone.

Beautiful! Very nice choice! I think a girl has to have a faux fur at least once in her life time!!

I made one many years ago in my "younger days"! It was all white and soooo soft! It stood out too because I was wearing it in the winter!! Very daring...but I was young and didn't know any better!! Love yours!
