Faux Fur Love

Wednesday, February 16, 2011

Today I am presenting you with one of my favorite outfits. I wear this get-up routinely because it is so comfy and still trendy. Notice, most of my favorite outfits are associated with comfort. I know this outfit is not on the cusp of a trend but rather at the end of it, but it IS still in style and I still love it. The faux fur vest featured lead me on a exhausting hunt, I went to at least 10 stores across 5 zip codes. I get ideas in my head of what I want and then I go searching for it. My mom thinks I'm crazy, she says "most people just go to the store to see what they have, not you, you already know exactly what you want." She thinks I should just design the stuff I want instead of spending days (some times weeks) looking for a ridiculous idea in my brain. Well, mom, I'd love to!! Who wants to be my financial backer? Anyways, I digress, This vest was on my mind for a few weeks before I found it at, none other than, Forever 21.  I was ecstatic! It was in my price point AND the last one they had!! I hope you like what I have paired my fur vest with! This look cost me $80.79 plus tax.
