Baby, it’s cold outside….
By Susan Caba
Temperatures are dropping into the subzero range–time to pull out the furs!
I know, I know, PITA doesn’t like it. Too bad.
This dark blue fox stole is for sale at Upscale Resale in St. Louis. Ticket price $375. Chances are it will soon be marked down by 30 percent. Wear it over a sweater or even your coat. I might even wear it over my pajamas, watching television.
Upscale Resale has racks of furs that might lead you to believe you’re in Aspen for the winter ski season, or that you’ve time-traveled to the 1980s. Ladies, gentlemen, if you are of the mind to have–or buy as a gift–a fur or fur-trimmed garment, now is the time. Upscale Resale (as well as other resale boutiques) has many styles, from full-length mink coats to stoles to collars, to leather jackets with fur trim. Think of the furry animal lives you’ll be saying by buying resale.
I haven’t gotten around to it yet, but I’m planning an article on simplicity, scarcity and luxury. The point will be that simplicity doesn’t mean scarcity, nor does it mean doing without luxurious things. More on that later.
In the meantime, if you have a fur languishing in a closet, either get it out and wear it or have it made into a throw. Who needs one of those fuzzy pajama things when you can snuggle under mink?
