Faux Fur Vest




Around this time last year, I purchased this gorgeous faux-fur vest from Zara. I'd always wanted a fur vest with streaks of cream, caramel and brown as I love those colours teamed together, especially for wear during the autumn/winter months. They also blend in with my hair lol! The minute I saw this vest in store, I darted straight for it and finding it in my size I didn't hesitate in buying it.

It’s been such a great buy as I have gotten so much wear out of it. It’s so versatile – you can easily layer it over any ensemble to instantly elevate your look and style; over a fitted black dress and high boots, or black (leather) leggings and a black shirt, or thrown over a white top or sweater and jeans.

The long-haired, faux-fur style as well as the longer-line length makes this vest dressy and the neutral tones make it timeless. I always receive compliments when I wear it and people are constantly approaching me to ask where I bought it.

I am happy to say I found an almost exact vest online at Forever New. My vest (which is on the left) is longer otherwise it's the same. It’s also a great price. From memory mine was around $120 whereas this one is $30 cheaper!

It's such a pretty layering piece to instantly jazz up and transform an otherwise ordinary outfit. I just bought it as a gift for my sister-in-law for Mother's day. The vest is available exclusively online so, buy it now while you can get it - you will not regret it!

Cold-Shoulder & Ruffles - April 2017

My apologies for yet another cold-shoulder-and-ruffles post but, I can't seem to get enough of this sexy trend! The weather is getting cooler by the day so, I have been on the look-out for a few long-sleeved tops, preferably ones I can wear during the day and also dress up for the evening - I'm in need of more dressy tops!

This pretty cold-shoulder and ruffles top from Forever New is perfect for taking your look from day to night. It's classy enough to wear to work and sexy enough, thanks to the cold-shoulder style and V-neckline, to wear out.

I like a V-neckline because it is very flattering. The neck is exposed as is some cleavage, elongating the body thus, creating a leaner and longer silhouette - always a bonus if I can look taller than I am!

However, because of my petite (and short) size I often have trouble finding V-necklines which fit well across the shoulders and don't plunge too far down. So, I was pleasantly surprised when I put this top on and it was a good fit and didn't over-expose. It's also very comfortable and runs true to size. For your reference, I am wearing a size 6. Plus, it's just the right length to tuck in or else leave out loosely over denims.

For a dinner date last night, I paired this top with my tan, high-waisted, faux leather skirt from Sheike and my black and white striped pumps. I can't wait to wear it with my black leather mini skirt and ankle boots!  


Forever New is currently offering $20 off this top. It also comes in white.
