Broke-Ass Tag: faux fur


A change in wedding plans means this bride is on the hunt for some new wedding accessories…

I love reading the Can’t Afford It/Get Over It feature, and I would love to see something on winter cover-ups!  I am getting married on December 15th in Los Angeles, and wearing the Avila Bay from Dolly Couture. We were originally getting married in May so I wasn’t worried about being cold, but now that we are having a winter wedding I’m not sure what would go with it to keep me warm. The weather here at that time of year is usually in the 50’s, so I won’t need a coat but I will need a sleeve (and I have taken a liking to faux fur shrugs, but I’m not sure how it would look). Help!

This was a unique challenge for me to take on. I wasn’t sure sure if you want to keep it all white or add a pop of color. Personally I wanted pops of color in the mix, so just in case you’re like me, I gave you both options.


A cover-up for the Avila Bay Dress


Coast Eliana Faux Fur Cover Up (£75 at House of Fraser)

Satin Mid-Length Cape with Faux Fur Trim ($125 at David’s Bridal)

Heartfelt Comfort Jacket ($64.99 at Ruche)

Eliza J Collared Faux Fur Bolero ($138 at Nordstrom)

Calvin Klein Faux Rabbit Fur Jacket ($138 at Zappos)

Vince Camuto Faux-Fur Jacket ($132 at Dillard’s)

With so many faux fur options, the biggest challenge will be picking a style. What will it be? Anyone else have a great suggestion to throw in the mix?
