Sunday Steals: Donna Karan Lamb Shearling Wrap Collar on the Cheap

Mon chéri, in the left corner we have Donna Karan’s luscious Lamb Shearling Wrap Collar; in the right corner you will find Talbots’ fabulous Faux Fur Collar.

While the fierce Talbots piece is, of course, constructed out of faux fur, as opposed to the true lambskin shearling of the Karan creation; for a mere $49.00, in comparison to the $1,295.00 price tag of its haute couture cousin, it is the frugalista’s cure for a furry craving, that is equal parts ethical, animal, and budget friendly – it also allows the budget fashionista the ability to indulge in both haute hues (black and grey)!

Which role are you playing today, kitty cats…the frugal femme fatale or the sassy spendthrift?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Saks Fifth Avenue and Talbots for the pictures.

That is such a cute collar. I really like Talbots, for the price they have good tailoring. I wish I led a more fabulous life. Maybe I should just show up at the dollar movies with a fur collar.

The fur is flying all over this season. From boots to vests everyone is wearing it.

Donna Karan, it looks softer.

ellie said...

WOW..that price is steep.

Its so cool. I'd go for the gray, though. and the cheaper one. Really, it is inspiring to want to create your own like crocheting.. of course, little bouquet of flowers!

I would go fake if I were to do this. But I doubt I will. Interesting.

this post just proves we have the same taste!! I work retail at Talbots and have this very faux fur collar on hold :)

Claire Kiefer said...

I will always always always choose faux fur or no fur. :)

Jennifer Fabulous said...

How glamorous! I have a feeling that in person the DK one is incredibly amazing and totally surpasses the Talbots one, but as I don't have $1,000 to spare, I'll take the Talbots one, please. ;)

Such a classic! Love that it can be attainable at that price.

BALLET NEWS said...

LOVING these. Genius. Especially as the thermometer is about to plunge...

Have a cosy week !

AH said...

i'd go for the talbots one... i'm fine with the use of lamb- and sheepskin, as well as any other animal used for food and not just for their fur, but i'll still go faux to save some cash.. :P

MarchMusings said...

Pretty way to keep your neck warm. To me that's key to staying warm in winter!

Cindy Whitehead said...

vivian l said...

What a fun piece! I actually prefer faux fur, so that's no drawback for me.

this free bird said...

Erika I am Talbots all the way lady. I wonder if they make a fur trapper hat???

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Donna Karan does look softer but both look cozy and warm!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

okay, I love this line!!! "Which role are you playing today, kitty cats…the frugal femme fatale or the sassy spendthrift?", so beautifully worded!!! I'm going to say Talbots all the way, faux fur is the way to go and I love, love, love the look of this and want the gray one as well!

Dancing Branflake said...

Fake please! And while we are at it I need a new LBD to go with this divine piece of glamour.

Sherin said...

Ooo, pretty. I'm definitley going for the Talbots one.

Krystal said...

guess i'll go for the cheap one!! :)

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

I have to say, I am LOVING faux fur myself! Craving a cute faux-fur cropped jacket!

Great buy!
