I told you this weather was a good excuse to wear my winter coats.  This patchwork fur jacket is an oldie but goodie I got at Buffalo Exchange 4 years ago.  And I’m wearing a faux fur vest under it.Speaking of weather… It was thunder snowing in Fort Worth yesterday morning!  What’s that about?!

The Buffalo Exchange tag read $16 for a fur coat.  In my excitement, I failed to notice the tear in the sleeve until I got home.  {Note to self:  Don’t get so excited about a thrift item that you forget to inspect it thoroughly!}  It took me forever to bring it in to get fixed.  And when I say forever, it was repaired last year… that’s 3 years later.  The seamstress told me they used fur glue to repair it.  I had NO IDEA that such a thing even existed!  Now YOU KNOW too!

And is it weird that I’m wearing real AND faux fur?

Anyhow, I’m SUPER DUPER EXCITED AND NERVOUS at the same time.  TODAY is my individual adoption interview!  Wish me luck!  :)

P.S. This isn’t what I’m wearing to the interview.  You’ll see that outfit next week!
P.P.S.  Excuse my constantly changing watermark.  I’m trying to find an easy and pretty version that works.

    I love the white on white, and good luck with your interview!

    I’m the same way with my ‘must fix’ pile from the thrift store. I need to stop buying fixer upers.

    It seems like there’s a cold wave going across the country, it’s been freezing in LA too! I love your jeans… the cut looks so good on you. Good luck on the interview!!

  7. Victoria says:

    OH Sam! My favorite little faux fur vest from F21 :)

    Good luck with your interview! Not that you will need luck, because you’re awesome!!! Let me know how it goes!

    PS. I know how it is with changing the watermark! It took me awhile to get something I liked (as you know).

  8. Lisa says:

    Sam….the fur is beautiful. I’m liking fur this year more than ever. I also love the flare jeans, the cream top and faux vest. Love the 70’s vibe of it.

  9. Terry S says:

    Hi Sam! I just wanted to tell you that I love your white fur vest! I’ve been looking for a nice gift for my wife (for no reason, haha) and I think something like that would be really awesome. And I gotta compliment you for your sense of style. Fashion is really your thing!

    Sam I adore these fur looks! Fur (faux) is such a luxurious look in the winter and you also look so cozy and stylish! happy friday! xo

  19. You’re breathtaking beautiful. I can honestly say this especially after having caught up with you face to face. Your second photo is STUNNING. I do mean, STUNNING. I know you once wished that you had a more distinct style but I think your strength lies in the fact that you’re a chameleon. Though I struggle to post a comment at times but I often admire your looks via Pose.

    • Samantha says:

      Thanks so much M!!! I do still get annoyed with how all over the place my style is from day to day! I guess it keeps things interesting! And please don’t ever worry about comments – I have the same problem too! I feel like there is NEVER enough time in the day!

    Love the winter white! I need to bust out my fur coats
