Fur vest: SheInside // Blanket scarf: American Eagle // tan beanie: J. Crew // sunglasses: ray-ban // purse: Halston Heritage // striped shirt: thrift store
A lot of times I use the term ‘quality piece’ or ‘classic’ to justify a clothing purchase. Because let’s face it, forever 21 is great, but 95 out of 100 times that shirt isn’t going to make it past the next closet clean-out. This fur vest is the opposite. For about $30 (which is a Forever 21 price) it has been with me for 2 years and over 20 outfits. I’m confident it will be with me for all the winters to come.
Being a statement and classic piece for such a low cost is a rare gem indeed. Christina originally showed this fur vest to me and also broadened by closet horizons showing me that it can be worn over a jacket, not just over a sweater or shirt. I wear it a lot over my leather jacket – and that makes me feel extra cool.
Faux fur really is so fun to wear. The first time I ever went to New York City was when I was 8 years old with my family. I vividly remember walking in front of some department store where there were picketers gathered in front yelling: “compassion is the fashion! Don’t wear fur!” Well 20 years later those picketers would be proud that faux fur has taken center stage in our hearts … and our wallets. 🙂
Hope you’re staying warm and thanks for reading!
