I have never been a fur person. I always thought they looked cute when chicks wore ’em, but I never thought I’d want one. My roommate is always rocking a fur vest. She’s got this really cool, funky and almost careless style. I love the way she puts things together. I lusted after her fur vests.
Then I spotted this furry little guy in Avenue for $59.90 (at 40 % off), so I got it for about $37. I had to have it. It’s grey and black fur with a green metallic “leather” back and gold buttons and zipper.It’s soooo cozy. Now I see why people like fur.
I paired the vest with an all denim getup. Dark denim jeggings with a lighter wash button up. Mixing light and dark denim is such a clean and sharp look. You can accessorize with any color. I chose earth tones.
My snake ring is from Avenue. They have great jewelry and it’s usually on sale. This one was $5. My shell necklace is from a street vendor in St. Maarten. It was $1. I love vendors. You can find the best stuff for CHEAP! The colors of the shell matches the vest perfectly. I know I said I would be less matchy matchy, but I couldn’t resist pairing these two!
I got these bracelets from St. Maarten as well. They were 3 for $10! I got another one that’s open with a snake’s head on one end and his tail on the other. You can wear them as necklaces too. I love that you can bend them in whatever shape you want. I just put it on and kept twisting and this is what I ended up with.
This outfit rocks with or without the vest, but I like the texture and depth that the vest adds. With these cold days we’ve been having in NYC, I’ve been LIVING in my thigh-high boots. I need all the extra warmth I can get! You may remember these $56 boots from my Inside Out post.
Oh and the beret? I’ve been wearing these things since I was a little girl. They’re definitely my winter hat of choice. This one cost me nothing. It was my mom’s from the 70’s. 🙂 This vest is going to be a winter staple in my wardobe. I can’t wait to experiment with it and pair it with dresses, shorts & tights and whatever else I can think of.
Are you a fan of the fur?
