BUY THE BEST FUR AT THE RIGHT PRICE

Hi Everyone
How many fur items do you have in your wardrobe? Fur collars, Fur trimmed cardigans, Fur trimmed gloves, Fur hats, Fur handbags......
Have you bought your fur jacket yet? Although the way the weather is in London, I am actually wondering if I'm going to get the wear out of mine. Having said that the night's are quite chilly, so any evening out will do, and these two fur jackets I have  will keep me going for a good few years....




This dark grey faux fur is from  EDINA RONAY  But It was bought for a bargain price at T K MAXX
Take a look at the Edina Ronay brand, if your richer than me, her styles are to die for!


But what I'm trying to get at here is to buy a good quality coat/jacket for a bargain price. Ebay or Yoox.com, T K Max or BRAND ALLEY are all great places to start looking. Even charity shops. One thing I will say regarding Ebay or buying on line. If you can get a good idea of the sizing before you hit the buy button.



I bought this jacket more for evening wear, it's not quite black , it has a lot of grey in it. Being of mature age I think you have to be careful of fur up against your skin tone. I wear a fair amount of black, but for some reason black fur just drowns me out! So it's wise to try a few different colours next to your skin tone before you buy on line if that's where you find your bargain.


Under the jacket I'm wearing one of my favourite vintage blouses. You can read why it's so special in this post HERE


I had a good prediction on the pussy bow blouse I think! I been wearing this for over a year, there are some great blouses out there with neck ties, great for covering up the neck area! (mine's terrible!)



My second jacket I have is by DKNY also a bargain from T K MAXX (I can spend hours either in there or on line!)
I wear this with more casual items. Jeans, faux leather trousers, black trousers. It's not as bulky as the first jacket, and I feel I can get away with wearing this in the daytime more.



And just as I'm half way through pictures! Oh hello photo bomber!


If I give you this biscuit will you leave me in peace? No chance! it's her walk time!

Have you found any special bargain fur coats? Have you just bought one or thinking of it? Do share and let me know
XO Laurie

PS I have fond a few lovely jackets listed below at bargain prices

  9. Well, now you're making me want a faux fur coat, although I was only at coveting a faux fur vest at this point. I love the grey of the coats, especially the Edina Ronay against the coloring of your hair and skin. Gorgeous! That blouse is beautiful...I'm going to have to read the post about why it's so special too. I understand what you're talking about with the weather. It has been unseasonably warm in most parts of the States too, the Midwest where I live included. No white Christmas for us, but a Merry Christmas nonetheless!
