Winter staple- the faux fur coat

I am sure we all have some must-haves, staple pieces and can not live without pieces each season. In the past summer time that piece would be my Birkenstocks sandals. In the winter time, one of the pieces is a faux fur coat. I scored this beautiful regal purple faux fur coat from ASOS last year. I was on the hunt for the perfect one that will not make me look bulky, has pockets and flatters a petite curvy body like myself. One thing about shopping from ASOS, always order more than one piece. You will need to pick and choose when you see them in real life. I find a lot of the time their sizes, colours and even the fit can vary. Thanks to their generous free shipping and return policy I have been able to find some wonderful fashion pieces.
Oh yes, in case you have not noticed, I got a new handbag. On my Instagram I joyfully called this my alternative Chanel Boy bag until I can afford the real thing. I blame my blogger friend Mica from Away from Blue. Her many fabulous outfit posts have enabled me to finally bite the bullet and ordered this beauty from Rebecca Minkoff website. I am really happy I did. The navy blue colour looks gorgeous with the silver hardware.  Thanks Mica for the great enabling because I am loving this bag :)

personally I would switch the leopard top with something tone to tone plain top, but... this great outfit looks good on you.

I'd have to agree with you re the faux fur as a winter staple, there is nothing better than some fuzzy (faux) goodness to wrap up into. It helps to enhance ones day I find too. For me at least!
