RAIDING MY SISTERS CLOSET: FOR FUREVER

My mom always says this funny thing about new trends: “First you abhor, then you endure, then you embrace,” and this is exactly how I’ve felt about the fur trend over the last year or so. At first I thought it was so ridiculous how everyone was walking around looking like a muppet, but then I kind of got used to it, and now I’m kind of obsessed with it. 
This faux fur vest is the first fur item I’ve added to my closet, and the first time I wore it I was scared to death. But now after a few wears I’m starting to get used to the idea of fur on me and actually love the texture and dimension it adds to an outfit. Now I’m wishing it was cold enough to get a big fur coat, or a snood, or a bag or something! I supposed there’s always next winter…
What do you guys think about the fur trend? Yes, no, or getting there?

Head on over to my sister’s blogs and see how they’re trying out the fur trend! 
  • I really like it as a vest, or a collar or something, but anything bigger than that, I'm a bit iffy.
    A fellow student has a faux fur bag, and I swear, I always think she's brought in her really boxy looking dog haha
    Love the combo here!

  • Love this look! The mixed prints with the faux fur is perfect!

  • I think you look gorgeous…. But I am not a fan of fur. I always wonder if you need to brush your vest befor you leave the house. There is something creepy about fur, fake or not.

  • I've wanted a fur vest for a while but I think they make me look too bulky. In addition to being preggers, that's not the look I'm going for. You however look great!

    • I hear ya! It's definitely hard to find fur vest options that aren't super bulky, even if you aren't pregnant! Maybe a better piece to find after that babe is born 🙂

  • The stripes and polka dots are sheer perfection!

  • I've been wanting a faux fur vest since last year! I actually bought one off eBay but it was terrible in person – I think I ordered black but it was really blue! This year I am loving the faux-fur collars & snoods & Aritzia has a great collar on sale right now for around $20.

  • I have a fur vest and I love it. I totally laughed about looking like a muppet – I hope I don't give off that vibe! I really like your vest is shorter, I have been looking for one that length.

  • I've been looking for a fur vest for the longest time now, but it's gonna be in the mid-70's the rest of the week, so I think I missed my chance. Maybe next winter!

  • I love the polka dots and fur vest! Such a cute combination!

  • I like it, but feel i may have missed the boat. Either way it looks great on you!

  • I love how you styled the vest, so cute! I have 2 fur scarves and my coworkers make fun of me A LOT for them so I could never wear one to work…but it would be fun to wear out!
