Oh, how I love furry things! Faux or real, I gravitate towards fur like a mad woman. Whatever your stance is on fur, you can’t deny its power to provoke glamour. My first memory of fur was, of course, Joan Collins in Dynasty! Don’t laugh but I was glued to that show as a child (it explains so many things)!

Let’s start with something pretty and furry to touch: Club Monaco’s “Sophie” fur clutch. So perfect for Christmas parties. And if you get sleepy, you can use it as a pillow!

Three of my fur items are from Canadian leather company Danier, a retailer that sometimes gets overlooked by the young hip things. Well, with adorable items like these fur muffs and toque and this cozy fur scarf, that’s about to change… at least for me.

Things don’t get more glamorous than Jennifer Behr. I think I may have a serious accessory crush on her in general. I love that her F/W collection incorporates fur and leather: so luxe. And the giant fox side pompom? Yes!

Now we are getting into faux fur. Faux or real, they both have their place in my heart. I certainly have room for both the Foley + Corinna leopard pouch bag and Michael Kors’ cozy-but-classy “Flurry.”

Everyone loves cheap chic! I always look to Joe Fresh and H&M for my quick fix. They never disappoint!
