As you know from this post last week I'm absolutely loving the fur vest trend again this season.  I recently purchased this one, so of course I've been happily pinning pins on Pinterest for outfit inspirations.  I've taken two of my faves & recreated the looks with what I have in my closet.


Fur & Red:


I loved the statement red in this outfit.  When I saw this pin it immediately reminded me of a red pleated blouse that I have so pinning it was a sure bet.  Here's how my recreation turned out.

Blouse - LOFT (last season), option, option with fun zipper detail //  Fur Vest - Wet Seal, identical option // Black Denim - Banana Republic (last season), option, option // Leopard Booties - Target (last season), option, option

Although my ultimate fur vest would be more the colors in the original pin, I was still happy with how my version came together.  I added the leopard booties for pattern & to bring some of the light color downward.  Confession: I had actually forgotten I had these black textured pants, so I was happy to see them again too.

Side note: if you love the earrings in the original pin, you can find them here.  My Sister owns a few pairs & LOVES them!

Faux Fur & Faux Leather:

We heart blogger FashionHippieLoves in these Oasis skinny jeans.

Two of my favorites (well actually 3) came together in this pin, so again, it was a no-brainer. I liked the use of black & gold accessories in the original pin as well.  Again, just using what I already own, I came up with this version:

Chambray - J.Crew Factory // Fur Vest - Wet Sealidentical option // Faux Leather Leggings - Express // Belt - Target // Nude Pumps - Madden Girl // Necklace, watch & bracelets - Charming Charlie

Personally I felt that I needed more definition at the waist, so I added a thin black belt.  Other than that, I used what I had for accessories & nude pumps to recreate the look.  Although I like the necklace much better from the original pin you make what you already own work, right?!  

Thus far I'm very pleased with the use I've gotten out of this vest - & it's only been a couple of weeks since I got it.  Although I will continue to look for one that has a darker/multi-tonal look, I've very happy to have this one (especially for the price-point).

Are you fur vest obsessed like me?

  1. Yes! You nailed it. I think I like both of your versions better. I LOVE the 2nd look. And great idea of adding the belt. That is the first thing I noticed and immediately thought - I have to do that.

  2. Ahh! Love this post Kellie! Two great outfits and spot-on re-creations! I especially love all of your accessories in these looks! You've built an impressive collection! (And when is your sister going to start a blog or IG account? She always seems to have good ideas....must run in the family!)

  4. Looks great! I love my fur vest...but it's a little poofy and two years old so that justifies adding a second right?
