You don't have to be a Muppet to appreciate the season's bumper crop of faux fur. But, I'm sure it helps.
I feel like such a smart girl for snapping up this The Battalion fuzzy vest in March, even though I only got to wear it once. And, boy did it make me sweat. But, I'm stubborn that way.
The season abounds with fur aplenty but for the most part, it's all the usual, unexciting suspects: cheetah coats with three-quarter sleeves, fake-rabbit vests. Nothing really looks that fresh, except that is, for this amazing sweater by LaRok ($448).
The asymmetrical hem is current; the use of the sweater sleeves with fur throughout the main body is so modern. Alas, it is made of real rabbit.
I have no problem eating beef or chicken, and I most certainly have absolutely no problem with — drooooool — bacon. But something really, truly creeps me out about wearing real fur. Makes me think of the unhinged bad guy in "Silence of the Lambs" who was making a coat out of people skins. It is just that foul.
Here's to hoping Forever XXI will appreciate this design and knock it off like there's no tomorrow.
