I really love faux fur. And admittedly, I feel like an alpaca wearing this vest! But, it’s one of my favorite “fun” winter items!
turtleneck :: White House Black Market
vest :: F21
earrings :: Anthropologie
cuff :: Mai Tai
skinny jeans :: LOFT
boots :: Steve Madden (Marshalls)
bag :: Coach (outlet)
I remember the day I bought the vest. I was in F21 and saw it on the sale rack. SCORE! A gal and her friend were also eying the vest. She walked away and very loudly said, “I could NEVER wear something like that”! I took it as a sign that it was meant for me! YAY! It makes me smile whenever I wear it – almost like putting a small Muppet suit on! I’ve also worn it over a black dress with a brown belt and brown boots.
The purse was a lucky outlet find. Apparently, it was damaged because some of beads had fallen off so it was over 60% off (this is quite a few years ago). I called Coach to see if that had any replacement beads – No. So I went to Hobby Lobby, found some, and rebeaded it. You can’t tell unless you are looking really closely.
Would you buy an item if it was damaged but discounted?
