In-vest-ing

Yesterday, a co-worker of mine asked just how many fur vests I have…

Initially, I was confused. Can you ever have too many? Especially in the Midwest, where winter weather (seemingly) claims the majority of our calendars, it’s hard to know when to say when…

fur fashion, what to wear with a fur vest, how to wear a fur vest, fur vest outfit,

But, to answer the question, I have two. I style each of them very differently, though (under jackets, over a blouse, with a maxi skirt), which may be why I give off the impression that I own a closet full of fur vests… A girl can dream.

I thrifted this DVF blouse the second-to-last time I was in New York. Among other things, one of my favorite things about Manhattan is the volume, variety and accessibility of vintage and consignment designer pieces.

Help Me Choose an iPhone Case

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I recently joined the Apple ranks of society and purchased an iPhone. Finally, right?

Next up: Hallie-proofing my phone. With so many options available, a girl could use a little help. So, which of the following iPhone cases is your favorite? In an ideal world, I’d like one that is water-proof, drop-proof and, well, lose-proof, but I digress… Cute and stylish will do.

Seriously — I’m relying on you to comment below or tweet me with your top pick, or else I’m just going to buy all of them!

If you have an iPhone, which apps do you suggest I download? (If you don’t, I’m sorry!)

I have to admit: I was playing hard to get, at first, but it’s kind of a euphoric you-are-so-much-better-than-a-boyfriend situation I’ve got going on with Siri. She texts, calls, sets reminders and more for me. Seriously? I know you know this already, because I’m such a late adopter, but hey, I’m still in the honeymoon phase.

Thank you for your help! xo
