Happy Monday everyone, here’s to having an amazing week!
For today’s post we are featuring a head to toe look from Full Beauty. As a brand ambassador I have really enjoyed the opportunity to explore all the different options that they have and I am still finding new things that I look forward to sharing with you.
One of the things readers have been asking for is outerwear options. Unfortunately living in Canada I do need to wear a winter coat (what I wouldn’t give not to have to!) so I can definitely help you out with this one. And Full Beauty has many options to choose from in a great size range. I will be sharing some more options over the coming weeks.
This entire look is centered around this gorgeous faux fur coat by Roaman’s. Faux fur is one of the fall and winter’s hottest trends and the fact that it is available in sizes up to a 34/36 is honestly very impressive.
It is often very hard to find fashion forward on trend pieces in sizes beyond a 24, maybe up to 28 but certainly not beyond that. So kudos to you Roaman’s for making trendy pieces accessible to all.
I have to admit that faux fur has grown on me when it became a trend this year. I never really loved it before. As a child of the 80’s and 90’s I remember my Mom, grandmother and aunts rocking theirs (some real because that’s what you did in the 80’s) and how I used to think how tacky they were. That’s right I said it! Clearly I had an opinion on fashion even way back then lol.
But the weather was quite cold here in November and December and they are predicting more of it so I decided to get this coat because it was something I couldn’t stop looking at on the website, it was literally calling my name, saying yes Lisa you need to buy me, I belong in your closet.
This coat comes in 5 different colours but I chose the Chinchilla because I loved the variations of grey and the way it looked like marble. I was very impressed with the quality of the faux fur, it is very soft to the touch and authentic looking.
The style is a relaxed fit with an attached hood and hook and eye closures down the front and a button at the neck to keep the wind out. The sleeves are designed to be rolled up so that is great for those of you who have shorter arms to adjust it and have it look like it was intentional. I know I had to adjust mine. It is also fully lined and machine washable!
I absolutely love this coat, it is cozy, very warm, stylish, fun, and practical for a cold climate. I am wearing the size 4x and it fit well. I do find that the sizing runs a bit small so I chose to size up to accommodate my pear shape. We shot this on a super cold day and I was warm and toasty like a bun in the oven.
I paired the coat with some simple pieces all in shades of grey to play on the texture of the coat. Of course a little sparkle never hurts anyone in my opinion so first up was this simple cotton ribbed tank with sequins on the front in a beautiful pearl grey colour that has a little bit of a blue undertone to it, giving it an almost ice like quality.
I topped it off with the matching shrug in the same colour that is just trimmed in sequins for a polished look. Both of these pieces are from Denim 24/7 which is also by Roaman’s. I am wearing the size 4x in both.
I sized up because I bought a previous piece from this line and it was a little small but I actually should have sized down to probably a 2x in the tank and a 3x in the shrug. Since Full Beauty has free returns in the US I am open to trying things out till I get the sizing chart down better.
Call me old fashioned but I really like the look of velour and so when I saw this skirt, a simple A-line with an elastic waist and pockets in this dark charcoal colour from Woman Within I thought it would be a perfect staple for my winter wardrobe. And this piece is very budget friendly, regular price is only $39.99 and you can often get it on sale for 50% off. I am wearing the 3x in this skirt.
Finally I had managed to score a pair of the teal wide calf boots that I have showcased in previous posts on winter clearance in grey. They were the perfect touch. Then I added this blinged out necklace from Lane Bryant in varying metallics for that luxe feel.
So there you have it, I am officially a snow bunny, all bundled up and ready for my hot cocoa in style. Tell me, will you dare to wear fur?
