The star of this outfit is this faux fur vest. I've been on the search for one that's not too puffy, and is the right color and texture. Believe it or not, I found the vest at Rent the Runway. I've relied on RTR (several times!) for weddings and black tie events over the years. Rent the Runway also offers a variety of clothing, outerwear and accessories for everyday wear — whether that be for a vacation, an interview or presentation at work, or "just because." I wore the faux fur vest and black clutch this last weekend, which was perfect for a fall staycation in the city with my mom. What I love about the vest is that the back side isn't faux fur, but a black sweater lining — keeping me from getting too warm or going overboard on fur. If you like the vest as much as I do, you can rent it for 4 (or 8) days via Rent the Runway. The vest is also available for purchase here and here.
