Faced with the imminent threat of the POLAR VORTEX, Matt and I headed out to the grocery store yesterday to stock up on provisions (read: wine). Though it was a balmy 7°, I decided I should probably still outfit myself in appropriate Wisconsin winter gear, so I layered an extremely cozy faux fur vest over a thermal long-sleeve tee. This vest is my new favorite thing, and it is definitely FAUX--you can never be too careful these days as real fur from animals such as raccoon dogs is finding its way into garments that are supposed to contain only synthetics (here is a list of retailers, brands, and designers who don't use/carry real fur, as well as a guide to distinguishing real fur from fake).
