Before we begin, I have a question for you… Do you and your mama share the same style? I suppose a better question might be, has she influenced yours at all? Because it’s safe to say my answer is a big. fat. yes to all of the above! And I’m laughing to myself as I put together this post, because she quite literally influenced today’s look.
vest SHAGGY FUR VEST | shoes CHUNKY HEEL BOOTIES (I wear these 24/7!) | bag LEOPARD PURSE c/o | jeans BLACK J.CREW JEANS | top WHITE BLOUSE (old H&M, similar linked) | watch KATE SPADE WATCH c/o | lip color MOD PINK
Cue her running into my room a week or so before Christmas. “LOOK AT THIS VEST, KATE!” She had been on the hunt for something festive and furry for her Christmas ensemble, and couldn’t contain her excitement over finding this fun thing. And at Forever21, no less! After practically tearing it from her hands, one look in the mirror told me I needed to pick one up for myself STAT.
Is it not so fun? My favorite thing about it is it’s whimsical quality. The shag lining from the neck to the ends of the vest create such a fun, glam feel. Amid the thousands of fur vests we’ve all seen this season, this one truly stands out. And while we all know Forever21 can be questionable on quality from time to time, this piece in particular is a rare exception. I was shocked, quite frankly.
Hurry, friends! It’s ON SALE FOR $27, and all sizes are available! (P.S. While you can only return for store credit when you buy in-store from Forever21, if you order online you can return via mail for a full refund!)
Way to go, mama. I truly am my mother’s daughter!
Love from Texas,
