fur vest

This piece has hung on the mannequin in my office for over a year now. I think this is the year to bring it on out. Come on fall. Honestly, this was all for my daughter. She dared me to go outside with it on because people would laugh. My point usually is to show her that I don’t care what other people think. I do me…and yes people were looking. I don’t know if they thought I was crazy, or if they thought my vest was cute.

Either way…my message was clear to her. Don’t think about what someone will think. Be respectful of yourself, and the rest falls into place. Fashion is meant to be fun, and individual. She is at the stage where everyone is doing the same thing (clothes wise), and I am trying to get her to go left while others are going right. So if it takes me going out in 100 degree weather with fur on to prove a point, so be it.

Personally, I love the look of these vests. Rachel Zoe, eat your heart out girl!





There is a vest for almost any budget!


Are you wearing one this fall?

High Fives & Hugs,

Thanks! I am trying... I drill in her to be different which can be hard at this age because you dont want people looking at you with a side eye...but at the end of the day being different is what sets us all apart. I cant wait for it to set in.

I bought a fur vest on sale at Cato last year! Normally, I wouldn't have purchased anything like it, but $7.00 was just a price I couldn't pass up! I was surprised at how often I ended up wearing it.

That is a great lesson for her to learn and for anyone. Nobody should be a follower.

Girl you are looking good! I was at Forever 21 with my oldest who turns 17 in 2 wks. She has a hardtime listening to me when shopping. I was able to convince her to buy some pieces that were different and not what "everyone" else is wearing. She is bold with her hair, but we are working on the wardrobe style. lol

Im def picking up the fur vest from Forever 21 this month. It reminds me of my mother back in the 70's.
