Holiday Glam Fashion Show Dec. 2 with Donna Salyers Fabulous Furs!

Even though temps have been pretty mild lately, it’ll be winter soon here in Cincinnati. And when it does, the best thing to wear to weather the cold, or snuggle up with in front of a fire is something cozy and furry.

That’s why I love Donna Salyers Fabulous-Furs. Here’s a story we did a while ago about how she got her locally-based empire started… and more stories we’ve written about her over the years… but in a nutshell, she started her business almost 30 years ago when she heard how real fur items were made. She made it her mission to create pieces that looked and felt as fab as real, but were faux.

Now, she travels the world, selling millions of units a year, getting featured on national and international media outlets… and she’s still based here in the Tri-State after all these years!

We’ve never done a fashion show with her clothes, coats and accessories before, so that’s exactly what we’ll be doing on Dec. 2 with our Holiday Glam Fashion Show! I can’t wait to see her newest designs rock the runway! Plus, the event benefits an amazing cause, Jar of Hope (ALL ticket and raffle proceeds benefits them!)

I hope you can make it! Details are below!

Donna Salyers’ Fabulous Furs Fall 2013 Lookbook is Here!

unnamedDonna Salyers’ Fabulous Furs just released its Fall 2013 Lookbook celebrating 25 years of the world’s finest faux furs. And, I must say, they really outdid themselves with this collection!

One of my favorite pieces in the lookbook is their horizontal fur vest! It’s long enough to wear overtop a comfy sweater and to pair with leggings and riding boots! Not only will you be comfortable all day long but you’ll look fabulous while doing it!

unnamed-2I also came across an amazing medium brown golden fox faux fur vest that looks great with a patterned blouse! Give your outfit the perfect combination of color and texture with this foxy vest!

I’m an accessory girl, so this pink fur clutch grabbed my attention right away, too! Not only will it be great for keeping your hands warm during the colder months but the studs on the handle are in right now. Pair this with a Fabulous Furs cropped jacket for an instant fashion statement.

Visit their website to see all the great looks Fabulous Furs has to offer for the upcoming fall season!

You can also stop by and shop their showroom in Covington KY! It’s located at 20 W 11th St Covington, KY 41011.

I just love this brand because it’s faux and fabulous. It looks and feels like real fur without it actually being real fur! Plus, you don’t have to worry about all that expensive upkeep and storage of a real fur!

And the only thing more fabulous than these furs is the local lady behind the business, Donna Salyers. She and I have been friends for years, and I truly admire her personally and professionally. We’ve written about her several times in Cincy Chic, so click on the following stories to read up on Donna, her staff, and her divine designs!
