When I was about 7, I had this absolutely gorgeous white faux fur coat which I wore every cold season for two years until it was too small and matted to death. The pain of letting go of such a good fitting coat now makes me wish I still had my little white polar bear in the wardrobe, however for a little sparkle and warmth this season I’ve turned to Blue Vanilla for total on-point style.
I’d actually been doing some work with etailPR on their brands when I got to know Blue Vanilla a little better – so many of my fave bloggers have been wearing their new collection recently so I was all ears – and whilst we were hard at it, this Oprah Metallic Faux Fur Coat* immediately caught my eye.
Fluffy, a good shape for curvy short girls, and a perfect Christmas piece for all your parties – what’s not to love? I think it’s best styled against simple blacks, greys and purples for maximum effect and a showstopping coat that gets everyone talking – trust me, 4 people have already invaded my personal space to stroke my arms. My only fault would be leaving a Hansel and Grettle trail of tinsel wherever I go, and that some of the strands get caught when I try to put a bag on my shoulder so this is not one for heavy duty, but with something so pretty you’ll only want to save it for best anyway (or when you’re sitting on your bed pretending to be a bear).

It’s great to see any brand expanding, and I think Blue Vanilla could be on track for success thanks to how well bloggers are receiving their new collections, and I’m certainly looking forward to working with them more. And as for the coat? Well, let’s just say I’m not crying over my white fluffy polar bear anymore 😉
Have you heard of Blue Vanilla? Are you loving the faux fur trend? What upcoming brands do you love?
Lots of Love,
