"FOX"y Lady

As you may know (or may not, it's cool if you aren't keeping up with the day-to-day of my life), I have been looking for a fox sweater for about a month now, ever since I saw a super cute one on Modcloth back before my birthday. I think foxes are supposed to be the "new owl" and you know how I feel about owls (ok, if you don't then you aren't paying enough attention to me!). I've never even thought twice about owning something with a fox on it, but now that sweater haunts me.



So, this top from Dorothy Perkins was a nice consolation prize. Not exactly what I was looking for, but it was cheaper and probably a bit more realistic than a ginormous fuzzy fox on a grown woman. I'm all about running a hipster trend into the ground (see birds, owls, and mustaches for examples) and there is some seriously cute fox stuff going on. Seriously. You can buy any of it for me. Seriously.


And for your viewing pleasure, here are some of my favorite fox pieces (including the sweater that started it all)!

I think your compromise is great! The pattern is fun yet still work appropriate! Love your headband too :)

Ok now, whoa! Foxes are the new owls?! Nothing can replace my beloved birds & owls... although that fox sweater comes dangerously close. I can see why you were obsessing over it. I think that top is just as cute, and you will get more wear out of it. It would look so cute with skinny jeans and long cardigan.

I see you got the skirt in a different color. I walked around ON with the green one for about 15 minutes yesterday before deciding not to get it in favor of getting a long sleeved shirt. I actually like this shirt way better than the sweater. Like Megan said below, you'll get more wear out of it!

Forget the fox, let's talk about the hair clip! I love it! Where is it from?

Your top is SO cute! I love those other fox sweaters you posted below. I think this trend is adorable, but I dunno if I'll be able to wear it without looking like a little girl.

Absolutely loving that top, and I agree, foxes are totally the new "it" animal when it comes to prints! Loving how you added that feather topper, totally brings together the whole look!

I love the fox with the little crown. Adorable! I bought an owl winter hat last year and promptly lost it. Maybe I'll buy a fox one this year.

Me too!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Will do!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

OK, I'm going to have to get to JCP TODAY and find it!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

We have seen it. I think it was a little too out there for Sean! I've been a fox fan ever since the Disney version of "Robin Hood'!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I will probably buy a few more pieces... I get started on something and can't stop!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I have an owl hat too from last winter, but that doesn't mean I don't need a fox one too!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I love a whimsical animal print. I'm sure there's an age limit on it, but I don't care!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you so much!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I got them at Payless last year. I looked forever for mustard shoes. They are tough to find :)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I know right?!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

MUSTACHES FOREVER! ;)

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Hailey!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you, Lisa... I like a lot of those too!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Bahahaha. A fox and a mustache. If only there were a little owl perched on his head, I could combine all of my loves in one piece!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I know! And the dumb thing is back in stock at Modcloth... I want it so bad!!!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Why can't that come in MY size!?!?

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Like I said, I will wear a trend OUT!! Thank you!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I could see that being problematic with your small frame!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you so much!!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Oops, my best friend made it for me! It's nice to have someone crafty nearby!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I needed a khaki skirt, so I figured this would be a nice alternative. I did the same thing with the blue one recently!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

OK, I am going to make that idea an outfit TODAY! Smart thinking!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I loved it too! Yay! Thank you so much. My BFF made that headband for me!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

Thank you so much, Ashley!

Hems for Her, a.k.a. Katie said...

I agree. It's definitely not as young looking as the sweater!

still being [Molly] said...

SO FUN! i love that top and i am kinda wanting a fox sweater (or top) for myself now!

jugglingchic said...

I love this shirt!!!! This is way better than a sweater with a big fox on it!

Selah said...

New at Old Navy! Looks a lot like the Dorothy Perkins version but under $30.

Selah said...

Yay! I can't wait to see it on you!
