Hey Robyn! You didn't give me a price cap, which is good, because in my quest to find a fur-ocious new coat for you, I, Rachel H., Outblush Operative, discovered something: Most of them are so expensive, it kind of makes me throw up in my mouth a little bit. I found you a few options under $200, but my advice as a thrift store cowgirl extraordinaire is this: Buy a (most likely smelly and disgusting) faux fur piece second hand, and have it professionally cleaned. You'll still probably come out for less than $100. Then again, if you've got more Benjamins than my 2nd grade Hebrew school class, get the Anna Sui!
