All About Fur

Is it me or are fur vests mode du jour this season? Gal pal and I was at Michael Kors a couple of weeks ago and we tried on a few fur vests which had me rethink this trend. Honestly, if a gal is not careful, she can end up looking like a bear of a gal, which is not savvy at all. To me, it is just very difficult to look slim and trendy wear a fur jacket.
However, before we write-off this fur trend, I must say not all fur vest are created equal. If a gal pick the right piece, she can be warm and stylish.  From all the vests we tried on, we figured out it was important to avoid vest that looked puffy around the middle. It was not fluttering at all!!!!
For me, I found an Ella Moss short fur vest ($258 via nordstrom.com) which worked pretty well with my petite frame. It was short enough this gal's figure still showed though all the fur.  I was in total adoration with a Alice + Olivia swing fur vest (via Alice + Olivia $396). The way it was cut, this savvy gal looked very stylish and not at all bear like. Are you into fur vest this season?

  8. It IS so hard to do fur (faux or real) on a petite frame. I definitely have a vest that swallows me whole, but it's so warm, I still wear it. I have a tighter fitting white one, but I don't like to look to ski bunny in it ;)
    Hope you have a great week, SG!

  11. I'm thinking about having my lynx jacket made into a vest. But if I look like a bear in the jacket, won't I look like a bear in the vest?

  12. It's not just vests, faux fur in general is having its moment this season. I don't think I can wear a vest without looking like a mini Yeti. But the faux fur scarves this season are very cute and a fun way to indulge in the trend.

  13. Haha it's so funny that you should say that because I always think fur coats make people look like bears. I've been wearing my vintage fur coat a lot this fall already and even though it's fabulous, I still think I look like a bear. Sigh. ;)

  14. Furs are really warm to wear but I look like a bear when I wear one and so I stay away from it unless it´s lines your coat coat.
