At long last. I don't just own a faux-fur vest, but a full-on faux-fur jacket. And this girl loves it. It begs the question - why isn't my entire closet this luxe? Honestly, I don't get a moment to just go shopping for myself. And when I do, I don't buy myself much. (It's mostly because right now the temptation of buying tiny clothes is just too irresistible...blush.)
I went shopping Saturday (before I became so freaking sick) at Steamroller Blues and I had the best time. You know those people who like to shop with other people? Not me. I love shopping alone. What therapy! And now I think I'll have to live in this faux-fur jacket from Mink Pink my whole life.
I did think it paired nicely with a black dress when I tried it, but my fav way to wear it is with faux-leather pants. (Faux all the way, ok?) The balancing out of the skinny and poofy silhouettes is just wonderful - not to mention, this outfit is crazy comfy because it's down to the 30s in the mornings lately! (Hate cold weather: love faux-fur...it's my winter mantra and the only thing that gets me through.)
And I love a great structured satchel (like this Rebecca Minkoff) to make you look like you're really going places (as moms, aren't we always?) - and whether you throw on booties or stilettos (these are alice + olivia), this is a winter wardrobe look you'll want to steal (not literally, my jacket is on lockdown and I'm watching..)
P.S. Can I mention this jacket only retails for $139?? (And if you went to the CARTI Festival of Fashion benefit this weekend like moi, grab yo' $25 off gift card...squeal!!
