Urban Viking

Monday, February 25, 2013


So, my husband started laughing at me when I put this giant fur vest on with this feminine silk dress. He said I looked like a viking... I decided I would take that as a compliment! If you put a positive spin on the Scandinavian pirates, all they really were, were explorers searching for a new frontier. I'd like to be considered a fashion viking at some point in my life, but right now, I'm just an urban viking, exploring the dangerous jungle of Los Angeles ;)

Viking...lol when I wore my fur vest my students kept asking me how many bears I killed. SIGH. I love those sunglasses! I also purchased a pair at the dollar store and they have become my favorite pair!

It's so funny the comments that come out of men's mouths when we wear fur vests/jackets. When I wore mine, a guy said I looked like the abominable snowman. LOL. I said, at least I was warm! I think your vest is super cute and I love it with the feminine dress! <3
