The Fur Vest

I finally found it – the perfect fur vest for me! (Or as my husband calls it, the gorilla vest).  I have to admit that I used to hate this trend.  I saw a fur vest on a friend last year and I thought, “What is she wearing?!” And now I’ve gone over to the dark side.  I had a hard time finding a vest that didn’t make me look like a furry animal had attached itself to my body.  Even though I’m tall I still feel like I have a petite frame (and a small head) so complete fur vests just looked silly on me.  The solution? A half fur vest with a belt!  Now I’m not completely covered in fur and the belt helps to define my waist so it doesn’t look too bulky.  I wore this out to see the new James Bond movie Skyfall so I thought the fur, high heel leather boots and statement earrings would be appropriate.

  1. I am dying for a fur vest! I don't want to get one that costs too much because it is such a 'in the moment' trend. The H&M one looks great!

  2. Um, this is hands down my fave of yours thus far!!! That vest is PERFECT!!! I hope H&M still has it when I go. It opens this weekend!!!! EEEEEEEK!!!! Thank you for linking up.

  3. Lol, I love that you admit for your hate for this trend. I was in the same boat a few years ago, and now I find myself lusting after the most perfect of perfect fur vests. When I find it, you'll be sure to know

  4. I have to check out that vest top at H&M. I want one with animal print. Maybe i will have luck and find one that I really like!
