Hello Lovelies! With today’s outfit post it would be a darn lie if I told you I was walking around Honolulu with this outfit on. Even in the middle of December it does not get cold enough on this island. To be honest I was sweating just taking these pictures…lol but I was in the mood to “dress up” for Winter and really wanted to wear my (faux) leather pants and (faux) fur vest together.
After waiting for what seemed like an eternity I received these pants I purchased a couple of weeks ago from Alloy. I ordered them in October and they were backordered.
But they were definitely worth the wait. They are super long, (I had to cuff mine under) and super soft and comfy to wear. I absolutely love the look of them. The only negative is that they do have a low-rise, nothing obscene, just a bit lower than I’m used to.
This faux fur vest I’ve had for over ten years now and I’ve only had the opportunity to wear it a couple of times, but every time I do, it adds instant chic to my outfit and makes me feel well …posh. Although its faux, its the quality that has allowed it to hold up its appearance all of these years, even after being stuffed in a vacuum sealed bag for most of its life . Every time I pull it out its luster remains intact and its super soft. Its one of the best clothing investments I’ve made. Another one of those items every woman should own, whether faux or real.
A great fitting pair of leather pants, whether faux or real, also a must have. They can be worn day or night. Be on the lookout for these pants in other upcoming outfit posts.
So what do you think of this “Faux Real” combination? Are you a fan of pairing leather and fur together? I think the combination exudes a certain subtle, sexy elegance.
What I’m Wearing:
Faux Fur Vest – Los Angeles Vendor (really old)
Heather Gray Turtleneck – Oldnavy.com (tall)
Faux Leather Pants – Jalate via Alloy.com (37″ inseam)
Black Booties – Christian Siriano for Payless
Bag – Louis Vuitton
Lipstick – MAC (Media)
I really wish it was cold enough here, for me to strut about town in this outfit, because I am definitely feeling this look. ;)
Thank you for reading!
