Ban Week 22: $10 Spent on …

… this spectacular faux fur collar. Mainly for wearage with last week’s anorak.

Faux fur collar
$9.99 on eBay
Fulfills: Faux fur collar (!) for use with anorak, mainly

OK, so I try not to lift ideas DIRECTLY from my mags, and believe me I know that this jacket-collar combo won’t get tons of use. But when I spied this look in the October issue of Lucky, it took my breath away. Try as I might, I couldn’t get it out of my head. For months and months I tried to convince myself that there was no reason for me to procure the two separate pieces necessary to complete this mid-weight jackety deal.

I failed.

And as the collar is gorgeous and works with several other coats, AND the anorak is adorable on its own, I feel … well, still feel kinda sheepish. Man, do I have an amazing collection of ridiculously underutilized fall- and spring-weight coats.

And now my collection has grown by one.

    Ha ha. This is hilariously right on target. I wonder if some women buy coats like we buy shoes. I do! I love your anorak/fur combo. What’s not to love about either one? You can wear that anorak forever. And probably the fur as well.

    Just this week I was debating about a cute as anything houndstooth print swing coat, originally $180 and marked down to $60. I told my family I could use another spring/fall weight coat and my 12-year-old daughter said, “You have so many coats!!”

    Hmm. I support you in this decision.
