Styling Vests + Link Up

October 19, 2016, by Deena @Shoes to Shiraz

Thanks for stopping by our link up today.  I'm Deena from Shoes to Shiraz and I'm the lucky one who gets to introduce our blog loop today.  The topic? Vest and Jackets.  While Mother Nature seems to have skipped fall and put us in the Great White North careening into winter, I am picking to skip jackets and show you a new vest I just got in NYC a couple weekends ago.

I find that a vest is a perfect way to break up a dress and add some interest and pizazz.  The dress is new from Loft (also a NYC purchase) available here and is the perfect colour for fall.  Well, for us, maybe Christmas.  And while I love the bell sleeves and relaxed fit, I don't find that it does anything for my figure.  I'm not fond of having anything cling to my waist, to be honest with you, so I need something to distract.

I started with fun jewelry.  The coolest jewel to have in prairies right now is the sparkle balls by Hillberg and Berk, a local Saskatchewan company. I have a sparkly red pair from my girlfriends and these new champagne ombré.  They are quite stunning and sparkly and fun!

 Also to jazz up the dress, I added the (fake) fur vest I picked up at the Bloomingdale Outlet. Similar here.  I love the fun that it adds to this outfit and that, while it screams TAKE ME OUT ON THE TOWN, I can still dress it down...but you'll have to flip back to my blog to see how I put that outfit together.

So, what do you think? Will you be investing in any vests this fall?  Hop on over to Katie's blog to see how she styles a vest.  Make sure you link up with us too!
