As it turns out there is another way to be fall cozy without wearing giant sweaters and scarves/generally looking like a hobo—and that way is a fur vest (faux fur in my case). I think my Sunday morning brunch companion was even a little envious of how snuggled I was across the table in this baby.
— What I wore —
The subtle colouring will make this vest a basic in my cold-weather wardrobe.
OKAY GUYS, LET'S TALK ABOUT PRICE. I rarely share how much my outfits actually cost because I believe there is so much more to thrifting than just the pretty pennies saved! But to talk about the pretty pennies:
- vest: $8 at the thrift store
- blouse: $6 at the thrift store
- booties: $10 at the thrift store
It just so happens that my jeans were a bargain Forever21 find at $3 and my watch was a gift from the bf. So that puts this outfit cost at a total of under $30.
So why is that so awesome? Because, I can love fashion and feel as though I've expressed my personal style without it dominating my monthly paycheque. I can pay off my student debt, save for travel, and save for the future—or if there is an expensive piece I'm lusting over I can put my clothing allowance towards that when I'm saving on everything else.
Where do you value saving money? Spending money?
