Thank you so much for stopping by the Trend Spin Linkup with The Fashion Canvas, Sparkle and Shine On and myself! Today's trend is fur and/or wool!  I absolutely love fur (fake), but I don't have any in my closet.  I don't know how I made it this long without a fur vest, but I need one soon.  Has anyone seen any nice ones that aren't too overpriced?  Since I was furless, I decided to wear wool today.  Wool is very tricky for me.  I have sensitive skin and can only wear some wool items.  It is quite the ordeal to go shopping with me for a new wool coat.  Everything starts itching my skin.  Luckily, this dress from Ann Taylor hasn't bothered me at all, and I've already worn it twice since I got it a few weeks ago (once to work and once to dinner.)  It was one of the last items I bought with my gift card I won from Ann Taylor.  I think this sweater will be a great, go-to dress this winter.

Now it's your turn to show us how you wear fur and wool - a dress, a vest or even some trousers.  It doesn't matter what clothing item it is or where it's from; we'd love to see it.  Here are our top 2 gingham and plaid looks from last week.

  1. Looking beautiful Laura!


  2. All of you ladies look gorgeous! I love that your dress is like a baseball tee...but better!

  3. Forever 21 has some great fur vests that are inexpensive.

    XOXO Jess

  4. I have sensitive skin too and can't wear any clothing animal hair. This dress doesn't actually have wool though does it? The Loft website just says polyester and spandex.

    1. It is synthetic and wool like. That is about as close to wool as I can get unless it's a wool coat or skirt and lined. ; )

  5. You looks great!
    thanks for hosting!

  6. Love these looks! I can't wait until it cools down enough to wear my faux fur vest!!

    xo, Christina

  7. Love the dress! My wool itches me sometimes too :/ I have a couple of faux fur vests (one long and one short) that I got from Express in past years! I just wait until they have sales (which is often, actually!) and grab them then with their coupons! Otherwise, I see them at H&M and even F21, too! :)

  8. So pretty the navy blue dress on you..

  9. Great dress - I like the baseball like sleeves on this. They have a cute vest at AT now. I was tempted to buy it and remembered that I already have one from last season.


  10. I love the baseball-tee look of this dress but so much more sophisticated! I got my faux fur vest from Zara.

  11. i love fur and wool for Fall/Winter!!!

  12. Love those shoes! And I am so jealous that you ladies haven't been forced to give in to wearing tights already, London weather is already too cold!

  13. Love your dress. SUch a versatile piece!!!!! Thanks for the link up.

  14. You look AMAZING!! Seriously. Gorgeous.

  15. A baseball tee sweater dress? How fab! And I love Erin's scarf!! So pretty. I fell in love with a fur scarf from Elie Tahari but I can't get past the whole wearing a dead animal thing (oh, and the price tag was like $700).


  16. I've really been wanting a fuzzy faux fur vest lately...I don't have anything in my closet either!

    Love, love, love this dress!!

  17. Loving all of these looks! The plaid is my fave!

  18. What a Gorgeous Dress & Clutch. I love the knuckle detail and that necklace matches perfect with the gold detail of the bag. =)

    I linked up real late this week but better late than never. I hope you like the Outfit, Laura. Check it out. =)

    Take Care, Ada. =)

  19. Wow, great outfit, amazing shoes !!
