FUR-ev-er ♠

Its like a damn fever spreading....FUR vests.

My opinion is mixed. I like them, then I don't. My friend just bought her 1 1/2 year old little girl one the other day, and it was adorable, but that's a baby/mommy thing...and of course it was cute ya know? She looked so cute....but anyways I don't want to deviate off the furry subject at hand.

These things are showing up on everyone EVERYWHERE..and quite frankly not everyone pulls it off so well.

I for one think I may be able to if I know what to pair it with, and I know for a FACT that I would do minimal to NO accessories, because the clutter of all that would make me feel like the 60's new clad version of Cruella De Ville. No thanks.

Here are some I like...will I wear..hmmm maybe...either they are:

This vest has a good color & texture

I like the detail, and the front tie on this one

This one is kind of messed up, "fringed" if you will...kind of rocker-ish..I can see Gwen & Sienna rockin' it

All of these are nice except for the last one, which reminds me of the 60's clad Cruella I mentioned *cringe*

Some women who pull them off well... hmmm...Rachel Zoe....however, she annoys me with all the accessories.
I also think Mischa Barton does a pretty damn good job, & well.... I always like the underground, solo-ish in-their-own-world gals like Chloe Savigny, & of course Alexa Chung...but my fave in fur has to be Sienna Miller ♥ Because she lives by the bohemian rule, her hair is always disheveled, and well she just always looks good in what she wears...true story. NOT to mention she doesn't over accessorize which is , in my opinion,  the key here.

I think  maybe a nice, fragile pair of earrings, or a cuff will do...but if you do the multiple bracelet thing, and the four necklaces plus earrings...its like c'mon? Did you just throw on your whole closet? ... Just sayin'.

Well,  I had to shout out the fur-ry behind this new statement in fashion called 'the fur vest.'

What do you think? Likey? No-Likey?  Either way...speak on it.



Fashion Icon AUGUST 2010 =s Inspiring GWEN ♥

Okay so who do I love, love, love, love, ...etc.. ???

GWEN-friggin'-Stefani!!!!!! ♥ This woman is amazing. Her style is so quirky and off beat but eccentric of a mixture, but at the end of the day it comes together, and she pulls it off brilliantly!

I especially love it when she wears less makeup, & really rocks out her fits her best in my opinion...check out this photo:

Rockin' the Heels short-shorts, beanie & basic tee...effortless iconicism!!! ♥

However, since she has gone solo, became a wonderfully adorable & great Mother ( I consider myself a great momma too ♥ ) , she has polished up the quirky, and made a classic hit on the fashion scene which I love! Sophisticated pea coats, tailored shirts, feminine twists on ties (check out the "4 in da morning video) maxi dresses with simple statement jewelry, and pinned up hair with Jacki O shades! Very throwback to the oldies! I love it!

So in honor of Gwen I made a little set of my own, a wish list, inspired by her quirky-classic style! I must first mention that I have been a NO DOUBT/ Gwen Stefani fan since the their underground days while I was still in gradeschool! My Aunt always lived in Orange County & Malibu and was alwasy scoping the "scene" so she was listening to them, and I was introduced as a youngster. My passion & obsession began! So heres to you Gwen, my August gal...keep rockin' , and shockin'!!!!

The Jacket is B.B. Dakota available at Lulu' & its my fave of all!!!! ♥

Well, I hope all the ladies & gents reading this had a great labor on the look out for the next icon feature, and remember that if someone doesn't like you, your style, your opinions or your voice...just keep walking & NEVER stop talking!!!
