Faux Fur + Perfect Presents

My brother hasn’t always known what to get me for Christmas. We’re 15 years apart and we don’t live in the same house anymore so we honestly don’t know each other that well. The best example of this disconnect was an Elmo backpack when I was at least 5 years removed from being into Elmo, So, in the more recent years I’ve asked for money or we’ve gone to the mall together to get what I want.

This past Christmas when he asked me what I wanted, I sent a link to the exact thing. In the back of my mind I knew though, that he wasn’t into online shopping and would probably give me something else. I was nervous and just hoped for a gift card or something. But his “ok I got ya” text put me at ease a little.

Fast forward to our Christmas celebration. He handed me a shirt box: way too big for a gift card. “Hey, give him some credit,” I told myself, “it could be good this year.” and it was. I opened the box to find a muted blush faux fur stole. It was gorgeous. But even more than that it was a gift that showed he knew at least something about what I liked and what my style was.

I styled that faux fur stole with a pink jacket and white shirt for the first time. I’m excited to see what other looks I can create with this piece. It was an amazing Christmas gift.

Stay fly,
