Fur-get Me Not

I had mentioned in my Lovely In Lace post that fashions from the Victorian era are in right now. I had also mentioned that fur fits in with this category. Since it is winter, you will be seeing this trend now more than ever. However, I know that many people (myself included) do not want to wear real fur for both financial and political reasons. The solution? Synthetic fur! Fake fur looks just as good as real fur does and will keep you just as warm on a cold winter day. It is also easier on your wallet and and you don't have to feel bad about it. So check out some of my faux fur fashion finds below:
