Oh, I forgot to add . . . the main reason I have not worn my norwegian fox is b/c it is big and fluffy and adds unwanted pounds . . . the last time I put it on, I thought I looked like a big blue-tinged marshmallow, ROFL!!! Dear me.

Some furs. like my raccoon, are very heavy to wear. Plus after being sick over the holidays it doesn't fit like it once did.

You have had a rough month at least w/ your health. Hope you will only keep improving!

There is nothing that keeps a person warmer than fur. And fake furs cannot compare as far as warmth. But they can be heavy. I used to love wearing a fur to the mountains w/ jeans. Worked for me. Lots of other people wear them in those conditions, so I didn't worry about PETA members jumping out at me w/ a paintball gun. Once you wear a fur in really cold weather, you can understand why people buy and wear furs!!!

I see this in Europe all the time.
Nice fur coat, jeans, heels.
It's a great look for women, IMHO.

I love that look, too, Mullman. I have boots w/ different types of heels depending on terrain - but for city wear - high heeled boots, jeans and fur coat - very very chic . . . Just not as good looking on me since I put on some pounds . . . Your very chic trim wife would look good in anything, but even the added "pounds" w/ a fur wouldn't make her look rotund, Hee Hee.

You are much too modest, Ani.
And kind to 'boot'!

I can't imagine anyone wearing a fur coat in Charlotte... I mean, it really doesn't get that cold and without snow/cold it would just seem out of place!

For those that may doubt it though, I assure you fur coats are still alive and well (maybe not alive, lol!) in some areas! When I worked in a camping store in a ritzy area north of Chicago older women would come in all the time wearing them which was pretty funny considering we specialized in organic/eco-friendly products!

I have a few adorable fur jackets I would love to be able to fit into again purchased at vintage stores back when that was my style. I think they're just rabbit, one is a black wool cardigan with fur collar, so cute! Actually now that I think about it, they weren't warm enough up north but would be perfect down here, maybe I need to hit the gym.
