Buenos dias my loves!!!
I can't begin to describe how badly I want Spring to get here (it's currently snowing in NYC). It's so hard to take outfit pictures for the blog because of the cold/ rainy weather we've been having. It's even tougher this month since my sister is taking her last college course (beyond proud of her). She was kind enough to spend the weekend with me so we could take pics for the blog! Today's post is all about achieving a stylish winter-friendly look by incorporating faux fur and faux leather. I put my outfits together with you in mind, my goal is to inspire you to try something DIFFERENT!!! I'm really happy with the way this outfit pulled together and I hope you like it as well! :)

I'm obsessed with all things faux fur and faux leather because they're stylish and great at keeping me warm during the winter. For this look I incorporated both to show how you can look and feel muy caliente! Last week I received this faux fur vest as a gift from X-POSE Fashion, a boutique in Miami, Florida. I was super happy to add it to my growing collection because of the unique color pattern and ribbed waistband that give it the perfect fit.
To draw attention to the vest and keep the look classy I wore a solid black crewneck sweater and black faux leather pants. I paired the look with chestnut brown booties to play up the hints of brown on the vest. To complete my faux-friendly look I wore a cute faux fur headband, gold clutch, oversized earrings and a gold cuff bracelet. In my opinion, an outfit isn't complete without a hint of color, so I sneaked in a bright pink lip pencil by LAQA & Co. called "Lambchop" (such a pretty color).
There's a lot of debate going on about faux fur and whether it truly is fake. I'd love to hear your take on what should be done about manufacturers and retailers violating the law?
