outfit schmoutfit: vest with the fur ((with the furrrr))

I'll start out by saying that Chase is not a fan of this vest. I had it on for date night one evening and he we had a heated discussion on wearing things "so fashion-y." Woof. So, I wore flannel for date night. Romantic, right? I'll agree that this is a littttttle out there. But what good are the holidays for if you can't wear fur? Come on.

Anwho - I tried to dress the vest down with my boyfriend jeans and booties. I think it worked - but I could tell the people at the grocery store weren't so sure about it "working" given the looks I was receiving ((that's the grocery crowd in the worst dressed city in America for ya)). I've only worn these one other time ((here)) and wanted to get more wear out of them…so I did. 


love.

  1. It's an adorable outfit Kim! It takes something more outrageous than that to raise eyebrows where I live!

  2. Love this look! And my boyfriend and I have those type of discussions all. the. time. Even though he's the most fashionable man I know, he still doesn't always "get it." I have wanted a fur vest furrrrrever! Maybe Santa will bring one!

  3. Boulder is not too fond of fur ;) I think it looks great and screw what Boulder thinks. Their fashion sense is weird.... (I work in Boulder).

  4. I LOVE the vest & especially love it over this "fancy" shirt. I don't love it with the big jeans; I think I'd prefer it with skinny jeans & the same boots, to give it a feminine edge. Between the length of the vest & the volume of the pants, I'm not crazy about the end silhouette here - but I do think all of the elements of it are great, & I love the bravery of trying something new & unexpected. It can be hard to break out & try something fun, especially when the significant other isn't on board. And girl, THAT HAIR! I may take a photo of your dye job to my colorist; my requests for "extreme ombre" haven't quite gotten through to her.

  5. You look so cute in that outfit, but I must say you are such a skinny mini that it looks as if your pants are gonna slide right off! :) Oh and your hair looks awesome!
