Faux Favorites

Furry Sweater - Local SD Shop // Faux Leather Leggings // H&M Booties - similar here  //  

I don't know about you, but I am loving the faux trend. I mean... #1 You are not harming animals and #2 it's usually much more cost effective.

On Friday, I took full advantage and fauxed it up...faux leather leggings, faux fur sweater and faux MAC lipstick (ok, not really faux but NYX is a great knockoff and 1/3 of the price of MAC lipsticks - more on this later!)

Clad in my faux get up and after a few of my version of a "margarita" (tequila, soda water & lime juice - try it!) & some awesome mexican food, we stumbled into the nearby stores and did some damage. There was an Urban Outfitters nearby so I snagged a super cute gold chevron midi ring and some mint lace shorts which I cannot WAIT to wear!

I just wish the stores would hop on this trend and take faux money. Wouldn't that be nice?? :)

What are you some of your favorite faux items? In what instances do you prefer the real thing?

  2. Those mint shorts are so pretty! I love faux fur (as you can tell from my blog today)...I would never wear the real thing since I'm not okay with killing animals in the name of fashion.

  12. I can't personally pull them off, but I love the look of faux leather leggings. They look edgy but still are super-comfy. Real leather skinny pants just don't seem wearable - I keep flashing back to that episode of Friends where Ross wears leather pants, goes to the restroom, then can't pull those pants back up - or take them off!

    1. Ha...I love it! That is one of the best episodes ever! "It made a paste!" I agree with the comfy part...I am not sure I could ever wear real leather pants either.
