Fur, baby!

I love fur... like really, really love it! I won't get into the ethical side of it, but I will say - faux fur has come such a long way... and fashion has really taken notice the last few seasons. And despite our little heatwave this week, winter is on its way and I just want to wrap myself in fluffy, scrumptious fur!

In fact I have been... at least when the cat will share....
I found this fabulous fur throw in the home section of my grocery store a few weeks ago... and Tux and I have been fighting over it ever since.

I was in need of a new pair of sturdy winter boots, and I found these at one of my favourite clearance sites
The tops can be worn up or folded down... of course I'm wearing them down to show off that fantastic fur lining (which is all the way through the boot!)

And In other fabulous furry footwear...
I'd been pining for these fur-lined Croc clogs for a few months now... and then a fur weeks ago,  I got an email... all Crocs on sale - half price! You didn't need to tell me twice! They arrived this week and while I don't even remotely need new shoes, I'm so glad I bought these.. sooooo comfortable!

Oh... and I have these boots I bought way back in the summer (I'm always thinking ahead..)
 .. and these ones too
(Just in case you were wondering, neither of those really count as "winter" boots like the first pair does... they aren't great for the snow... they are more like "cold weather boots")

I'm still waiting for this little fur-bearing  beauty to arrive...

.. its coming from one of those dicey sites in China, so the jury is out on whether it will match up on sizing... but it was ridiculously inexpensive, and If I don't like it, I have a few small people on my Christmas list who would love it.

And even though I have all these wonderful fur things, I keep thinking of other ways to incorporate fur into my wardrobe... I do need a new winter coat... I wonder if I can find one like Claire's on Outlander...
... probably not... oh well... a girl can dream...

I lined my suede boots with possum soles the other day, the lining is faux fur so I needed some real stuff; so warm now! Also I have 2 dresses on the way from AliExpress (also Chinese), really hoping the sizing is correct as they're supposed to be for post-surgery wear.
I've got a coat with a fur collar (I made it pre-kids and the fur is rabbit; so yummy). Rabbits are a real pest here, very much like possums. I've also got some goat pelts that are lovely and long and soft, one will be a fur muff at some point, the other I'm not sure yet, but maybe to line the hood of a cloak.
