I got this fur and leather Theory vest a few years ago, and it has proven itself to be a worthy investment piece. I love it so, and it’s perfect for adding a little texture and warmth during the winter months. The only problem? I was limiting myself to wearing it to evening events only; it just felt a little fancy and didn’t seem to fit into my everyday wardrobe. I love a good fashion challenge though, so I became determined to figure out a way to make my fur work for day time. What better piece to pair it with than my favorite flare jeans?! With the cropped silhouette of the vest, I think the flared hem balances out the look and makes it all more proportionate. And layering a great vintage-inspired Led Zeppelin tee under it makes it feel more me! I tucked the front of the top into my jeans to avoid the frumpy, no-waistline effect an untucked tee can give, and I went to my go-to accessories: the skinny version of this J. Crew leopard belt and my trusty Rag & Bone Margot booties. Now this fave investment piece is a truly versatile piece too!
On another note, this gorgeous DVF python clutch is just one of many handbags that will be up for auction at the upcoming Heroes & Handbags luncheon on April 21, 2016. There are many great designer bags lined up, including a FABULOUS Hermès Birkin!! Our dear friend, Chay Taylor, is chairing this wonderful event, which raises money for Heroes for Children, and Chastiti and I are honored to serve as the underwriting chairs this year. If you would like additional information about this organization or the luncheon/auction, please contact Lindsey Welch at email@example.com.
