Furry Boot Trend Made Easy!

This season, it seems faux fur (and sometimes real fur) is everywhere. I have seen it on coats, gloves, cardigans, hats, gloves, the edges of shirts and skirts, and on boots/shoes. I have found the look intriguing but not intriguing enough to commit to buying a pair for faux furry boots.

I am loving the look of  the faux fur and shearling but cannot afford the price tag of the look when it is a trend that may not hang around. I really don't want to be stuck with expensive boots/shoes that are only in for a season and then seem silly to me in the future.

Then, on wandering around I came across these leg warmers:

What an inexpensive ($41.00 before tax/shipping) way to give this season's faux fur look a spin without the huge cash commitment. And you can use more than one style boot/shoe in the process. I am loving it!

I may have to add them to my "Christmas gift ideas" list and see if I cannot get a pair to play around with.

I loved our comment on Wendy's blog. I just had to tell you. : )

I am seriously thinking about the legwarmers and purchasing them. Still on the fence about affording them at the moment.

Thanks for the wonderful comment about my comment at Wendy's. I had to say it. :)
