Fall Trends: Favorite

Rabbit vest - thrifted, DIY'd
Tee - Old Navy, gift
Jeans - Mossimo, thrifted
Hepat boots - Tsubo

Wow! Fall Favorite day already. My outfit may be more "winter" favorite because it is cold. My favs today are my fur vest and OTK boots. This vest used to be a coat. I thrifted it for $10 and decided to remake it into something a little more wearable becauseI have a jacket that I grab more often that's more fitted. So some time with scissors and the sewing machine, I fitted down the coat into a furry vest. (The excess fur has been kindly donated to my mom's outside stray-kitties' igloo for winter warmth)

My "pajama" boots made a fun contrast to the silky rabbit fur. They're going to be a go-to for the coldest days this winter. Also since Keely is wearing the tunic she bought from me today, I decided to belt the vest with the belt she gifted to me!

Don't forget to check out all the participants from this week. I'm still making my rounds to catch up because we had a great group and I don't want to miss a single post.

Participants: Email Keely with one fav photo from this week's challenge BY SUNDAY to be included in a roundup.


  1. Megan, I love, love, love this look! Did you do a demo of how you made the vest? I love it. The boots are really, really to die for! This is such a cool, tough, sexy look. All I can say is Wow!!!!

  2. Oh my goodness! I love this! I love your rocker looks. They feel like they are truly you. And those boots. Gorgeous!

  3. I ADORE this look! The belt, the vest, the boots - they're all perfect! :D

  4. Wow, your waist is so TINY! Would it be cruel to mention that it's 80 degrees here today? :)

    I saw the tunic on Keely's blog. Good to know the tunic found a good home. I'm still catching up on all the Fashion Challenge posts too. Happy Halloween!

  5. This outfit is FIERCE! I love every aspect of it. Maybe it is because I would copy this is a second. FABULOUS!


  6. Those boots are smoking sexy! I love their laces and how ingenius to turn the fur coat into a vest-looks great!

  7. So sexy and chic! I love the vest + boots, Megan, you rule this look!

  8. I like how you turned this jacket into a vest, its easier to wear and very sexy!
    I wanted to participate as well in the challenge but I had so many problems this week that I didnt even manage to have one single post! I'm sorry..:(

  9. This is fabulous! The fur vest really makes a dramatic statement, but I love how you kept things casual with jeans. Those boots are simply wonderful and I think they pair wonderfully with the rest of the outfit. Another wonderful wardrobe challenge. It was a blast!

  10. Those boots are to die for! I love the belted vest - I did a furry vest on the weekend too! Ha!

  11. My oh my I love this look Megan! I made my own faux fur vest as well in the same way, minus the sewing part (it's ghettofied). You look great and the OTK boots are just the icing on the cake.

  12. i'm loving fur for the fall! and those boots are fantastic! you look great!!!


Thanks for reading. Got something to say? I'd love to hear it!
