Splurge vs. Steal: The [Faux] Fur Vest

Happy New Year dolls! I can't believe another year has come and gone. Thank you readers who kept me updated with sales over the holidays. I scored some great items at crazy low prices.

To be honest, I never thought I'd be talking about this trend in 2013. Last winter, I purchased a cropped leopard vest and told myself I'd probably get only a month of wear and be done with it. To my surprise, bloggers have been incorporating the fur vest into their OOTD posts this season, and I couldn't be happier to wear mine on Christmas AND NYE!


  / SPLURGE $170 - $300 / Purchase Here, Here, Here



  / STEAL $16 - $45 / Purchase Here, Here, Here /  


Bloggers do it Better! I love how these ladies added a 'lil touch of fur to their outfits:

  2. Love it! I was so hesitant about a faux fur vest when I first bought mine last year. I thought I'd look ridiculous in it! However, I do like it a lot, and I think it's a fun yet practical look.

  12. The F21 version is so fluffy and reminds me of polka dots even though it's animal print. Love the bow sash too. :)

  15. Hey Tasha! I have to agree with you that it’s great seeing bloggers post outfits that incorporate fur in them. It’s a great way to get some inspiration and tips on putting together your own ensemble. There are also DIY instructions on restyling old coats into vests, stoles or snoods that can be used during cold weather and not just the winter season.
