faux fur vest + thrift sisters link up

fur vest thrift inkup It’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 up This 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.

  1. I’m so glad you guys are doing the fur vests this week! A reminder that I need to pull mine out for the season! Loving these looks and the heels are killer! Yes, I’m jealous you’re not in boots!

  2. Welcome back Ayana and Happy New Year 2015!! I am glad you and Keren are back and looking gorgeous in your fur vests and denim. I love both outfits equally, hard to choose a favorite between the two.

    Pleasure linking up for the first time this year.

    <3 Ada.

  3. 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.

    1. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.
