The only reason I’m missing the east coast winter weather is the fact that I am able to layer with this vest because of it. It really is quite the magical piece. Over my simple turtleneck sweater, or even over a classic leather jacket, it always feels special. I chose to go with a bright blue pair of jeans and red hot purse to brighten up the its earthy hues. Rodebjer kills it every time with their statement piece game. Sometimes its nice to feel extra fancy. My vintage faux leopard coat has endured three east coast winters and far too many dry cleaning sessions. I’m sure it’s happy to have a break this season now that I have this baby in rotation. But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. I’m in California until early January, so no need for a coat until then, of course. But a wintry Central Park will be waiting for me when I get back though 🙂 And a nice fur vest, too.
