faux fur vest + thrift sisters link up

fur vest thrift inkupIt’s the first Thrift Sisters Link Up of the year!  Yes, Keren Charles of Two Stylish Kays and I, took a little mini holiday break, but we are back and very excited about showing off some awesome thrifted styles this year.  We are starting off the 2015 Thrift Sisters Link Up with fur vests.  Please check out Keren’s blog to get the details of this real fur vest that she scored for only $2.95.

fur vest & thrift sisters link upThis is definitely a date night outfit!  I scored this faux fur vest at a local San Diego Salvation Army for $6.00 last year.  To be honest with you, styling this vest is difficult for me.  I am always uncertain as to whether there needs to be a certain color that must be paired with the vest.  However, once this outfit came together, I was really happy and satisfied.

  9. That vest is amazing! What a fantastic find! You look great.


  10. Love how you styled your fur vest. I was given a fur vest a couple of years ago, but I’ve never worn it. I need to move it to the closet in my bedroom so I can remember to wear it one day.
    We actually have Savers in my area. I need to go there. I’ve heard lots of good things about Savers.

    • Sonya,
      You should definitely move that vest to the bedroom and try it out before the season ends. I don’t have a Savers near me and I am jealous. Let me know if you find any great items.

  11. Love love love this look! I have the faux fur vest (which I rarely ever wear…I always feel self conscious when wearing it!) and it looks like I now need some leather leggings!

  12. I will have to check out Valley Thrift. I’m only 30 minutes from

  13. I love this look! I love how the fur keeps the sheer top covered to keep it more modest!
    xo, Kyla

  14. Such a beautiful look and what great finds…wish we could wear open toe shoes (jealous). Happy New Year!

  15. Ah I love it!! This is something that I need to add to my closet… a vest!

  16. First – I LOVE those shoes! Second – your outfit styling is on point! This was such a fun post to read. Since I’m in Nebraska – I really wish I were in CA where its much warmer! 🙂

  17. Gorgeous as always! $16 for those shoes is a total score!

  18. It was to curry favour with the former Sharif of Mecca in the Hashemite family,
    that the British took 76% on the land promised to Israel.

    And contrary for the self-defeating Leftist Israeli claims,
    there are barely 6.five million Muslim Arabs in Israel, Gaza, Judea & Samaria,
    AND Jordan. Jordan is no massive deal; if we just send the three million Muslims between the Jordan River along
    with the Mediterranean Sea to live happily ever after’ in the EU, we solve 99% from the internal
    security problems of Israel. Good idea.
