Faux Fur Vest & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

December 17, 2015
I wore this outfit Christmas shopping last weekend with my husband.

I’m kinda liking how the cropped faux fur vest is making my waist look smaller!

We spent the day at the mall finding my husband something to wear to his fancy holiday work party.  I had my outfit picked a month ago (not that it stopped me from trying on 15 dresses, “just cuz” … and buying some some fun finishing touches).  

However, the fashion fates have played a cruel trick and my poor guy has been down all week with the flu.  If we don’t go, I might dress up in my party outfit and traipse around my yard taking sad photos of myself!  What else is a girl to do all dressed up with no place to go?

Here’s some fab ladies bringing on the holiday glam ….

Next Fun Fashion Friday will be on Christmas Day!  Can you believe it?  I’ll start the fun Friday Eve as usual. The link up will be open for a week, so just drop by whenever you can. We’ll be there whenever you want to share a cute family Xmas photo or a peek into what Santa put under your tree!  And … don’t forget sharing after Christmas SALES!

Wishing my beautiful sweet readers the very happiest of holidays!

    Poor husband, I hope things will take a turn for the better soon, Dawn Lucy. It's no fun to fall ill in general, let alone this time of the year. And for the record, you already have such a teeny tiny waist 🙂 xoxo

    I'm still wanting a fur vest myself. I hadn't given much thought to a cropped one but it might be perfect for a short girl like me.

    I am so loving fur this year. It is such a great way to ramp up an outfit. Love your look! Thank you for hosting.


  • Reply Monika Faulkner December 18, 2015 at 3:30 pm

    I already have THREE furry vests hanging in my wardrobe, dearest Dawn…but your cute little cropped version has got me craving at least one more!! And you are SO right…it makes your waist look positively "waspish!!" P.S. I totally feel your holiday party pain; my hubby and I had been looking forward to a housewarming we'd planned for his family and some friends last Saturday…and he ended up with the flu, too!! Guess who had to look after 19 guests all by herself?? XOXO

    A great outfit and no place to go is the worst. I hope your hubby will feel better asap!
    Faux fur vests are awesome, I have one that I bought years ago and still pull out every winter. It's a bit "Games of Thrones", and I love that. Your cropped one looks amazing, your outfit is flawless!

    Perfect shopping outfit, love the layering.
