Wanted: Fur Vest
I always have a clothing item or accessory on my list of "wants". My mother taught me a long time ago that there's a difference between "wanting" and "needing" something when you're shopping. I usually wait when I want something. It will go one of two ways: 1.) I lose sleep over how badly I want it, so it eventually turns into something I need and I buy it, or 2.) I get over it and move on to the next desired item. So far, I've had many sleepless nights over this fur vest.
No, technically I don't need it. But my goodness, I could think of a million ways to wear it. I love how Francesca's belted it and layered it on top of a bright top and leather skirt. It totally justifies wearing a skirt in the winter. It's also the perfect piece to add to any otherwise boring outfit. Wearing black skinnies with a black top cause you heard black make you look skinny and you're having a fat day? Layer the fur vest on top and you're hiding your paunch and making your outfit so much more chic.
Okay, that's it. I've officially talked myself into "needing" not "wanting" a fur vest immediately. Thanks for listening.
