DVF fox fur vest & flare leg jeans

Hi all, after 10-day wait, I received both my fox fur vests (DVF and Vince). Both of them are super soft and well made. I decided to keep both. They not only have different styles and functions (I will introduce both of them in this and the next post), but also are worth the investment. Do you notice how much the price goes up this year? 

Compared to Vince fox (hair only) fur vest, DVF vest is more chunky. You may not be able to layer this vest underneath any coat; actually I tried at home, and I did look like wearing football protective gears underneath, lol. Well, this vest can seriously keep you warm. I wore this outfit in an upper 40F winter day, and did not feel cold. Quality wise, I have no complaint so far. I did not notice any significant (fox) hair falling throughout the day, which happened to my lamb fur vest at the very beginning.

You have different choices to wear this vest: with skinny jeans and boots (as Michelle paired here), or with pencil / flare leg jeans and heels. For my height (5’4), I prefer the later pairing. What is your preference in wearing a fur vest? I added a skinny belt to create a peplum top look, which may also help to elongate the legs. Instead of flare leg jeans, a mini skirt or shirt dress will also be good choices for this vest. I can’t wait to experiment different pairings… Do you have any other suggestions?

    The only size available is small. It fits well, though I think xs mighter be better. The price on http://www.vince.com is not bad, but it might be the final sale.

    thank you. I have the same DVF vest and really like the light weight, so i'm thinking to buy the vince vest too.

    It is worth getting both! You can layer the vince vest but not the DVF one. They are different!

    很喜欢你的blog,不过这件看上去有点胖也!我喜欢之前你有一件比较长的有点短袖的皮衣。我之前是个学生,穿得很活泼可爱型,现在想往都市白领转型,很喜欢你的风格,不过,好像你每个月花在衣服上的钱要好几千,我可承担不起,呜呜。我给自己定的花费是一个月500,所以只能买少而精。你有没有一些好建议呢?比如第一个包应该买什么?第一双好鞋,还有风衣大衣呢?谢谢你的博客,受益良多:)眉庄

    Thank you for stopping by my blog. Once a while I spoil myself a little bit, like my birthday or big sale seasons. My budget is just slightly higher than yours. I like buying deals and 'recycling' my closet. In a previous post (http://www.fabbylife.com/2012/12/burberry-glossy-puffer-coat-turquoise.html) I mentioned my closet strategy. I don't mind spending a little bit more on coats, bags, scarves and shoes, which last for many years. Couple of my Burberry coats were bought in 2005, and I still like them and wear them. The Prada booties I wore in this post were bought in 2007… Personally I like Burberry coats (trench coats, down coats…), which you always can find deals now. My girl friend just bought one high gloss Burberry down coat from Neiman Marcus with $350. Though it is not cheap, it will last years.Shoes, I like Salvatore Ferragamo. Once a while, there are deals for classic SF shoes in Bloomingdales. SF shoes (flats and vera pumps with 1 3/4'' heels) also last many years if you take good care of them. The first bag is a very personal choice, depending on your preference. I don't mind logos, so LV bags work for me. If you want to invest more, Chanel CF or 255 is good. If you want a low-key and trendy one, you can try Balenciaga, Chloe or YSL. If your badget is not that high for a premium designer bag, you may want to check Rebecca Minkoff, Longchamp or Marc Jacobs (there are very deep sales of MJ bags).

    Wow,谢谢你的回复,你真是太好了!!!原来你的预算只比我高一点点,看来我还是有希望打扮成象你一样漂亮有品味的呢!真的,过新年我在理衣服,真的是买了太多的衣服,但一直喜欢的却不多,所以新年我的新决心就是少而精。我觉得你太完美了,是个妈妈还能这么美丽,你是我的偶像,我已经订阅你的博客了,希望能常常看到更新。祝新年快乐,永远美丽:)

    Like it. How about mix-matching the vest with a pair of graphic leggings?

  23. lovefabbylife December 30, 2012 at 12:39 PM Reply

    Might need mile-long legs to handle graphic leggings… I think this works for Michelle…

  24. Liye Zhang December 30, 2012 at 5:31 PM Reply

    Thank you so much, both girls! You are so nice. I will take a try tonight or tomorrow. Hope can still get it. 🙂
