The Luxe For Less: It's SO Fluffy!

 It all started with those seemingly childish fluffy pom-poms hanging off our handbags. 'What on earth is that?', asked the other half worrying that my sartorial influences now came from toddlers. 'Erm... if Fendi can do them, so can I, BABE!' #MenDontUnderstandFashion

Fast forward a few months and fashions love with everything fluffy and feathery has entered a new level. From my fave fluffy pom-pom earrings that I cannot take off, to the faux fur coats you guys are snuggling up in over in the Northern Hemisphere. Fashion has gone fluffy; and we love it! **Puts on Despicable Me Voice** 'It's SO FLUFFY I COULD DIE!'

My long term homies will know my serious love for all types of creatures and it's for this reason that I DO not support real fur! Guys; the fake stuff looks just as good, as some poor Minx didn't have to give up it's life for you! As for feathers, I'm featuring products that only use meat bi-product materials. Ok; enough of this ethical mumbo jumbo...

Here's how to inject a bit of fluff into your look without breaking the bank, or the environment...

Northern Hemisphere

1. Fluffy Mittens, Jack Wills (Here)  2. Faux Fur Boots, TOMs (Here)  3. Pom Pom Hat, ASOS (Here)  4. Faux Fur Collar Coat, Missguided (Here)  5. Feather Bandeau Dress, Topshop (Here)  6. Feather Skirt, Nicole by Nicole Miller (Here)  7. Fluffy Bag, ASOS(Here)  8. Feather Embellished Sweater, She In (Here)

Winter is the perfect excuse to get fluffy! If you want to go all out cookie-monster chic, go for a full blown faux-fur coat, such as this lovely Missguided number.

If you're starting out on the fluffy scale, add a couple of accessories to embrace this fun trend. These Jack Wills tan gloves will save your poor pinkies from frostbite and will look good with anything.

Feather embellishments are perfect for that dressy evening do too! Stand out and be fashion forward in this Topshop off-the-shoulder feather dress and nail two trends in one! Alternatively, this Nicole Miller feather skirt will look stunning paired with a high neck metallic top. You can even pair it with a chunky, oversized knit to rock this trend in the daytime!

Southern Hemisphere
1. Feather Gilet, Topshop (Here)   2. Pom-Pom Earrings, Boohoo (Here)  3.Feather Necklace, Macy's (Here) 4. Maxi Dress, Love Stitch (Here)  5. Faux Fur Bag, Missguided (Here)  6. Heels, Topshop (Here)  7. Belt, Cara Accessories (Here) 8. Pool Slides, MSGM (Here)

Fluffy doesn't necessarily have to equate to sweaty. Ok... I'm not advising you to wear a full blown faux-fur coat, that is sweaty, but little bits of fluffy and feathery embellishments here and there will add a third textured dimension to your look.

For a big fat tick to the Aussie Summer's boho trend, opt for this Topshop feather gilet. If you're looking to up the glam factor, opt for these matching heels too! **I am totally drooling over these**

If you're headed to the beach, why not swap your boring old pool slides for these fun feathery babies? Add some pom pom earrings for a little quirky edge. I have these beautiful earrings myself and I literally cannot take them off!

Stuck in a rut when it comes to styling your fluffy or feathered piece? Lucky for you, I am a total Pinterest addict and here's the fruit of my procrastination labours...

But first, on a rather amusing note this bag has eyebrows!!

 Ok....distraction over!

  15. My boyfriend literally doesn't get fashion or my love for fur pom poms hahah but who cares! I love you for doing a double climate selection too you doll xxxx

  16. There's nothing better than wearing a fluffy faux fur jacket on a cold day to keep you warm and cozy. I say yes for fluff, haha!


  17. I love pom poms and feathers on clothes!!!
    Want one of these amazing skirts!

  18. I actually think we are hard-wired to like fluffy soft things... reminds us of puppies and baby chicks or something! In any case, I love the the feathery skirt you highlight here and those moccasins look amazingly comfy!

    Love, Mary

  19. Hands down best post of the day!! I love these little fringey faux fear creatures everywhere. I even have one of them on my backpack for school attached to my key-chain ;) Fendi is so fantastic for re-creating this idea, and you are for reminding us of it. Really feel for your stance against real fur. It's just not necessary anymore. Perhaps, once it was but now it is no longer. We can survive winter without skinning gorgeous animals.


  20. Fur is gonna rule in the coming months. The bag looks cute with furry eyebrows :D
    Have a great day!

  21. I am all about the faux furs lately! Love the post! No.3 is my fav!

  22. Love this post and trend,I want that skirt!!!:-)

    Happy weekend, love!

  24. There are so many pieces that I would love to have from the collection that you shared with us. The fluffy bag with eyes is so cute! Love the feather skirts! Have a great weekend!


  25. I totally agree with you. Faux fur looks as good as real one so no need to kill innocent animals! You picked up great items and I really need to get myself a coat. Winter is coming so I should keep myself warm :) x

  26. I love furry things lately! The bag with the eyebrows is adorable and I love the silver feathery skirt. A fur vest seems like the perfect way to play with this trend. Amazing post!
