Last Fashion Week (in Feb.) I was so inspired by the faux fur vests I saw, I knew immediately it would be my "statement" piece for fall. Ya know, the item you must have for the season (last fall it was a killer pair of black booties). Well, with my impending arrival in December, I've decided to forgo looking like a big, hairy monster (sob!) and instead pull out the booties again. That's not to say I'm not absolutely drooooling over all those vests I'm seeing out there. Hold.me.back!
And while most of us fashionistas on a budget (sigh) can't necessarily afford what we drool over, it's so much fun to ogle and eye (for maybe something less expensive?). Take this beauuuutiful cropped Gryphon version at Intermix (one of my fav stores!). It's $725 (really? for faux? and you can "preorder" now), but what a masterpiece! A neckline embellished with golden baubles and just fluffy enough without being over the top. Wear it with jeans or over a dress. Just don't cover it up with a coat. It's waaaay too droolworthy for that.
