Fur Vests – Fall Cozy Chic

I’d say furry vest is a signature fall garment, suited for the cooler temperature and season of layering. But rather than a fashion staple, it’s more of a statement piece with a touch of extravagance and luxury. This is a throw back outfit, as you can see my hair was still black :-). I rocked this vest with some basic blacks – tee, watch and boots, along with some accessories that screamed “look at me!”. The best thing about fur vests is that you really don’t need to put much thoughts into the styling. It may not seem like it, but it’s extremely versatile. An oxford shirt, a cocktail dress, a sweater, a silky dress-shirt – wear it with anything you want, a fur vest up top will instantly amp up the chic! And of course, the cozy. If you don’t believe me, check out the Pinterest page for fur vests outfits, it’s so hard to go wrong! Although this was a bigger trend years back, don’t let your fur vests collect dust in the closet! 🙂  

Stripes, stripes, stripes

It’s true, wearing vertical stripes has a slim effect, whereas wearing horizontal stripes has the opposite. But there’s something about horizontal stripes that I find so visually pleasing and chic, perhaps because the perfectly parallel lines make any tops look more refined and hence easier to dress them up or down. I fully embraced the stripes here with this dress, but hey, color black is slimming so I didn’t feel too bad about it.I accessorized with mostly black – hat; earrings; shoes;watch, with a mild pop of color with my all time favorite ice cream purse. Not your typical OOTD, but hope you like this! 🙂

Youthful Vibe

Piercings, make-up, revealing and sophisticated looking clothes at a younger age defined my desire to look more mature, and be able to blend in with the older crowd. So it seems I’m kicking like Benjamin Button, and have it all backwards. T-shirts, sneakers, and cute backpacks that I would’ve once thought looked too childish, are things I’ve developed an ineffable appreciation for. Youth is precious, anyone would agree to that, but like many of us, we don’t catch on until it starts slipping. And the realization hits hard, likely when the unpaid credit card bills (which only seem to get bigger every month) start getting delivered to your doors. I’m digging youthful vibes lately, maybe part of that is me compensating and proving to myself that I still can be. Don’t worry, I’m not in denial. I just became appreciative of what I once missed. And hey, it’s a good thing to feel youthful – it feels like anything’s possible. 🙂 Thanks for reading lovelies, let me know your thoughts on my outfit as well as the post’s theme! 🙂 ❤
