Lately I’ve been disturbingly obsessed with faux fur! Aside from glancing maniacally towards every shop window scanning for furry things, I’ve been dragging my new faux fur collar (aka loaf of bread as Jazzy Jack likes to call it :D) everywhere with me. So I decided to make my addiction useful and styled five outfits, one including a live fur collar – my cat! Hope you like them! I even made the text all fluffy…I need professional help…..
You can never go wrong with the classic denim. From a casual pair of jeans to the more intricate pinafore, denim does wonders combined with a fur collar. For this outfit, I paired my maxi pinafore dress with camel accessories for boldness (note the suitcase!) and layered a simple navy shirt underneath.

This one is easy as pie, although I don’t think making a pie is easy at all. Lets say this is easy as boiling an egg, there, that’s better! Basically put whatever crap you have in your wardrobe on top of other crap and for the icing add a fur collar.
For this outfit I used my multicolored kid’s dress as a vest and placed it over a casual top, paired my high waist skinny jeans with Chelsea boots and a vintage red purse. The end result was a little meatless, so I added a newsboy cap for flavor.

Inspired by the 20’s
I know this year’s trends are all about the 70’s but since Boardwalk Empire came out I have been obsessed with fashion from the 20’s. The lustrous art deco pieces, flapper dresses and dazzling mini purses tempt me like donuts tempt Homer Simpson.
For the styling here I used an embellished sheer tank top and a feminine black skirt with sequin details. This would look even better with a classic headpiece, but I didn’t have any. 🙁 Anyone care to donate? *wink,wink*

Prepare thy doors because girl scout Keit is on the streets selling drugs,..I mean cookies! For this ensemble, I used my cat as the main accessory and layered a white shirt underneath a leather sleeveless dress. The cheeky socks and beret are a great way to add a dash of playfulness.

My most favorite texture combination is lace and fur. I love the delicate feminine feel of the lace and the cozy comfort of the fur. I didn’t want my butt to freeze, I like my butt very much, so I wore skinny jeans underneath the dress. To steer away from boredom, you can play around with jewelry, add a kimono on top or a cozy knit cardigan.
Let me know which outfit is your favorite and how would you style a fur collar?
