Fur Vests – Yay or Nay?

Most times I believe one should wear whatever feels good or YOU think makes you look good, regardless of the ‘rules’ or opinions of others.  Often when I’m unsure I’ll take a quick iPhone pic and send it around to a few close gfs for a vote: Yay or Nay … before exiting a change room.  Thank you Ladies – ya’ll know who you are 😉

But one afternoon wandering around the Queen W hood after a lazy late Sunday Brunch, I found myself poking around the fantastic finds of 69Vintage and found the most amazing fur & leather vest!!!  And above this find was a sign that read: 50% off!sweaterdress fur1

Now…at first glance looking at this piece on the hanger it gave me a Tina Turner Mad Max vibe, quickly followed by thoughts of “where the heck would I ever where this?”   So I petted and caressed the fox fur and lamb leather softness, and walked away to pursue the rest of the store.  But my heart and hands kept returning to the rack with this amazing find.  Such a high quality item was bound to be ridiculous expensive … plus its vintage…..$$$.  Much to my surprise it was tagless…which means FREE, right?  😛

After multiple try-ons, humming and hawwing….this lovely piece found its way home with me for a steal price of $50! BOOM!

Best part about it:  no one else will ever have it!  It’s one of a kind…and it’s in MY closet now! Woot! Woot!

sweaterdress fur3Fur vests are hugely popular this season.  But being busty, short, thick and BROWN… I’ve shyed away from incorporating such a piece into my wardrobe.  There’s a fine line between looking like a curvy fashionista vs. an Ewok on the streets of Toronto.

Here’s how I’ve managed to introduce this outrageously fierce fur vest into a Look … What do you think: Yay or Nay? Use the comments section to let me know your thoughts.

I've been chubby-curvy-plus-sized my entire life. Standing at a height of 5'2 and with a darker complexion, it has always been a challenge finding outfits or "looks" that really suit me. Living in the fashionable city of Toronto since birth, with a solid career has finally allowed me to embrace my love of pretty fashions in clothing, shoes and everything in between.
