Did the post name catch you off guard? Well between my faux sheep skin vest and leopard shoes I thought it was pretty appropriate! To be honest when I saw this vest at Marshall’s I wasn’t sure about it at first. But like most things from there I bought it and took it home to play around with it. I think because it was a little different, it scared me at first. It is definitely a piece that draws your attention and stands out. But like any well-made outfit, isn’t that a good thing?! I love when people compliment me for wearing something different or when they say “Oo I haven’t seen that before”. Fashion is a statement of self expression and if you like it, then wear it! The magic happens the moment you venture to wear something that isn’t what everyone else is wearing and is authentic to you.
I love how high fashion this vest makes me feel and not to mention it is super soft and comfortable! The length hits right above my knee making it a little longer than most normal vests. Between the length and the fur this vest is hands down a bold statement piece for anyone’s closet.
You’ve probably noticed from other posts but I just can’t get enough of this MAC lipstick shade in “Diva”. It is the perfect fall/winter color! You can get it here!
My roomie gave me this beautiful pendant necklace for Christmas and sadly it is no longer available online but I have linked a couple similar options here, here and here (very cute Kate Spade option).

I had so much fun putting together this outfit. If you are scared to venture away from “the norm”, my advice is to start small. That is kind of what I did here. I love the faux fur trend but when I saw this vest I thought it blew the normal little fur vest out of the water. I had never seen one like this before. The length took it to a whole new level. So what you can do is take a trend that is already in place and put your own spin on it. Try a different color, different length, different pattern, pair 2 trends together, break a fashion rule (because there are no rules in fashion and don’t you think otherwise), etc. Do whatever it is to make it your own and then rock it!
