Planning my first Fall outfit was fun. (So is alliteration.) Over the Summer, Macy's opened a new off-price discount store called Macys Backstage. The store has fashionable clothes at steep savings. I visited one that popped up near me and saw something special -- an item I've always wanted to own but never have. It's something the cool girls had when I was growing up.
It is a faux-fur vest made to look like Mongolian sheep fur. Delicious and unusual. Instantly stylish. And on sale at deep discount for only $22.
Along with my new vest, I'm wearing a very cute pleated skirt with two rows of color which I got in the clothing-swap at the Vancouver Blogger Meetup. The skirt was brought to the swap by Greetje who, coincidentally, chose the red sweater I contributed. (She posts about it here.) I'm also wearing a wooden necklace my friend Gracey gave me showing a silhouette of the State of Oregon with a heart inside. Thanks, big buddy!
I really like this outfit. It's fashion-forward and modern. Often I get stuck in my head and choose clothes I wish I could have worn decades ago during a youth I never had instead of dressing for today. This ensemble, I believe, is more realistic and current.
What do you think? Would you wear a Mongolian sheep fur vest?
