I was out and about on Sunday when I purchased a rather uncharacteristic addition to my uber preppy wardrobe: a (faux) fur vest. I was on the hunt for warm formal wear since this year I'll be spending the major holidays up north and my usual cache of Lilly Pulitzers won't cut it. I've seen lots of glamorous ladies sporting fur this fall so while I was grabbing one of everything to try on I reached for a vest just for the hell of it. And then I took it home. It looked awesome with my jeans and sweater. I think my waspy ancestors would approve so long as I pair it with my pearls. After all they probably galavanted around town in the real deal!
