The other day in class we were asked to admit our favorite tv guilty pleasures and hey I am not ashamed to admit that The Rachel Zoe Project is my ULTIMATE fave. I don't even see it as a guilty pleasure because I am so in love with her, her style, and her team. "I Die!" I swear I watch each episode several times to seriously take in all the fabulous outfits RZ and Taylor wear (not the mention the fabulousness of Brad). I love even more that RZ is all about things vintage and she has a serious collections of fur that's to die for.
Unfortunately as much as I love the way it looks, I can't bring myself to wear fur. Dad's a vet, mum's a serious animal lover. Yea so I grew up with all things animals. However I do eat meat (rarely though) and wear leather, so I guess I'm a hypocrite to some people but it's just something about fur that I can't wear. I even own a fur coat given to me as a present by my aunt and uncle which is gorgeous but I can't wear it. (My uncle owns a pretty serious leather manufacturing company in the city which provides leather for furniture but also designers including Uggs.) But I cannot help but love the look of a plush cream fur vest as seen on RZ.
Good news for me there are so many designers now going pro-PETA and working with the faux look and I am in love. Last year my little sister talked me out of getting a faux one (that was simply gorgeous) from Forever21 bc she said I looked like big foot. Major regret esp since it was like 30 bucks. I swear I'm not listening to people talk me out of buying things ever again. Maybe that one will come back to stores but I also really love this on by Rachel Roy for Macy's. "Bananas!" Who would have known I'd love Monday nights; thank you RZP! Plus just read this article about RZ's collection coming to QVC! YES!!
