For those who are wearing or who wore vintage fur shawls or wraps to their weddings, can I please see a picture? I want to make sue that mine fits me well. Was yours warm enough for outside pics? It’s going to be freezing on my wedding day/night. Does mine look like it fits? I’m just wearing a tank top under it. The shop owner thought it fit. Thanks.

    Hi Marla,
    I currently have a stole a very similar shape to yours. Does it close in the front? That style (or at least what it seems from the photo) should be able to clasp in the front.

    I don’t believe that it does and I don’t want to clasp it. The style is a bit different than the ones on Amazon. The flaps go downward and not across like the others that I’ve seen. It is vintage. Does yours look like this on a hanger?

    Yes, that is the style that my stole is. While mine has a clasp on it, many I’ve tried on do not. Typically though, for fit, you would want it to meet in the front, like the attached. (I don’t have any pics of myself in the stole so this is just from Pinterest)

    I guess they never made plus sized ones. 🤷‍♀️

    It’s fur season now. Do you have any other boutiques or consignment shops you can check out?

    No, unfortunately not. My wedding is tomorrow. It will be in single digits. I bought the one in the picture. It did look long enough in the back.

    That’s good, that it’s covering your back! I’d be afraid of being cold!!
    Honestly, I think its beautiful regardless, especially if you’re wearing it with your dress; this way you’ll be able to see the bodice better.
    Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!! 💕

    Thank you. Smiley smile It’ll only show up in some pics and it was nice and warm. I search for months and could really find much of anything. It was frustrating.

    It’s really beautiful! I’m glad it’s warm-you’ll need it with this cold snap! Haha


    Yeah, the furs don’t start coming out until about now so I can imagine that you were having a hard time. I’m glad you found one you love, though!

    My vintage stole is like that and it has clasps. I usually don’t clasp it but you can cross the front pieces by holding them. I wore my to a ball in February with an off-the-shoulder gown and it was very warm! Yours is pretty and it should keep you warm.

    Show me your fur shrugs and does this fit? 6 This is what I meant by holding it. (Not the picture from the ball). It really does keep me warm.
