Faux fur vests – well actually vests in general – are very in this season. I’ve always liked vests, but struggled to wear them. In Chicago, you have to wear a jacket over the vest when you’re outside, and then it’s too hot inside to keep it on. Disclaimer: I took my coat off for a brief few minutes here for this shoot. This cropped vest from Akira is actually light enough that I can (usually) keep it on indoors.
Something that puzzles me about Chicago is the colder it gets outdoors, the warmer they turn the heat up indoors. It makes no sense to me why you would turn the heat up so high when you have to dress warmer to withstand the cold outside. It will literally be negative 20 degrees outside and 80 inside. It’s typical that I wear a super warm coat with just a tank underneath so I can adjust to the extreme temperature change. If someone from Chicago will explain this to me, I would appreciate that.
I’ve been carrying this Henri Bendel Jetsetter bag all quarter. It’s perfect for class and traveling.
