Los Angeles had so much to offer this Texan girl. One of them was this fabulous Chinatown district Kelsi pointed out to me once during my stay. I was immediately fixated on the gorgeous red lanterns swinging in the constant California breeze. I had to come back.

And I did. That same afternoon, with [houston].

We strolled in the waning evening sunlight, perusing quaint little Chinese shops, where I picked up a jade bangle and a jade pendant cut in the shape of the Chinese buddha (double good luck, the sweet shop owner assured me).

I had been oohing and aahing over faux fur vests for a while now, but was waiting for just the right one – this one by Jack BB Dakota is perfect. It looks very nearly real, which can’t be said about all faux fur vests, and it has a little collar to it which I love. I felt glamorous walking around in it – which is just what a fabulous piece of clothing ought to do!

All photos shot by [houston] (thanks, darling!) and edited by moi.

      Hey Jennifer! I use a Canon Digital Rebel XSi with the standard (kit) lens. It's a workhorse and is very light (much lighter than my old 20D)!

    Love this look. I picked up a similar faux fur vest from Zara almost 2 yrs ago but unfortunately I have only worn it once because I find it really hard to put together outfits with it that don't make me look HUGE! Any tips?!

      Liz – Try belting it with a skinny belt!

    That vest looks so soft and warm! I'm entirely jealous. So far I haven't managed to find one that doesn't clash with the red tones in my hair.

  12. […] I really haven’t worn this faux-fur vest as often as I should – it’s so fun, fashionable, and dare-I-say-it slightly ridiculous that it’s sure to chic up any outfit. Last seen here. […]
