I have boots in my closet that I have worn for years. Basic black and brown with basic heels. They’re always right there, on the edge of being fashionable but they have never quite gotten there. Until this…!
The two trends I have noticed this fall are ankle boots, which I have, and fur. Lots of fur accents, coats, shoes, vests and so on.
Donna Salyer’s Fabulous (faux) Furs has the cutest Fur Boot-Toppers to give my ankle boots just the right update. You can go either wild or tame, either option adds an eye-catching accent in mink, fox, sable or cheetah (remember they are all
fake faux fur). Slide them onto your calf, put on your boots and then slide the elastic band to the top of your boot. And, Voila! A new look for an old pair of boots!
I love the fact that they can also be worn as sleeve cuffs on a leather or winter coat. And, because they are faux fur, they can easily be machine washed. And they induce zero guilt on the animal abuse front.
Add a coordinating Faux Fur Muff for retro-style convenience: the muff keeps your hands warm as well as holds all your essentials in a hidden side pocket. Why did these ever go out of style? I love them!
Go to Fabulous Furs to view their entire line for men, women, children and home (including pets). The Boot-Toppers are $39.00 for a set of three (Can you say bar-gain!).
PS: These make for a great gift idea for the upcoming holidays too! :-)
