Faking it

The fall has finally settled in my corner of the world and the leaves are starting to turn. I love this time of the year and it makes me crave all the autumnal, warm color combinations..


I have bought this faux fur vest two years ago but never got around to wearing it too much.  I was determined to start using it more this year. Previously, I have worn it with jeans, but I decided it will also work with a dress. This is Linda wrap sweater dress from Diane Von Furstenberg (also worn here and in fact it looked very similar, after I took off the vest and scarf). I love DVF wrap dresses and my favorite thing about this one is that although it is a print (which is easier to wear in wrap style if you body is not model quality) it is neutral and not very memorable.

 
All the element of this outifit are old, fur vest and boots by Boden, bag by Banana Republic, scarf by Barbour, sunglasses by Ray Ban, gloves by Lord and Tailor. Nothing by J.crew this time.

  4. I also love this outfit, ajc! The DVF dresses all look so lovely on you. :)

    I do wear faux-fur and own several different pieces. Granted, they do not get worn as much as I would like do to our warmer winters. However, I still love them and wear them any chance I get when we get a cold snap here.

    1. Thanks FFM, I think faux fur is a lot of fun. You know, you may actually be able to wear it more, for me it will soon be too cold.

  7. Love the outfit- how fun. The DVF dress is fabulous on you! I'm a huge DVF fan. Her dresses are too short on me so I can only admire them on others.
