#ThankYouMiami for Fashion - Faux Fur in the French Quarter

Per the Miami norm, our fashion HQ at is currently getting a little work done. But these photos from our recent trip to New Orleans were begging to make their way onto the "internets" and, since Miami is between two cold fronts, we figured you could use inspiration for a cool weather look. Alas, today's post for our #ThankYouMiami for Fashion column is solely being posted on our site.

This look begins with a dream three years in the making. That's how long we've been looking for the perfect faux fur or fluffy jacket. We've tried on hundreds and hundreds of jackets, never finding "The One" - until last week when we set foot at The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk in New Orleans. There, nestled amidst the Fall/Winter fashions of Forever 21, was the faux fur jacket of our reverie (similar here and here).

We bought the jacket on our second day in town and found an excuse to wear it every day of our trip. It was definitely overkill for the mild weather, which was in the low 70s and sunny, but from the covetous and confused stares we received it was apparent we looked fabulous. Moreover, the jacket proved super versatile. We shot two looks with the jacket for the blog - this one, which was perfect for exploring the French Quarter, and another that was perfect for a night out on the town and will be featured in a future article. For other ways of styling a faux fur jacket, check out the snaps from our NOLA trip on our Instagram page.
