Faux Fur Wrap

Real fur is unacceptable but faux fur is a great way to stay stylish and warm. You won't have to hurt any animals to create this luxurious piece that can wear all fall and winter long.

Faux Fur Wrap

By purchasing the nicest faux fur you can find you can create a retro, Mad Men-style wrap that is animal-friendly.
