Why I Stole this Faux Fur Look

faux fur vest

only $30 at TJ Maxx

Over on my Facebook page  loyal reader Celeste Dickson recently posted this photo. She wrote:

I admit it. I purchased a  faux vest because I saw Fabulous after 40 reader, Jobee, wearing on your blog.

I would never have tried something on like this until I saw how great she looked in a similar one. And mine, though lifelike, is FAUX!  Machine washable acrylic/poly.

It really does look like suede and fur, but isn’t. And it’s reversible!


Who says you can’t wear a vest over 40, or in this case over 70. Way to go JoBee!

Thanks for sharing Celeste!

You will certainly enjoy this purchase guilt free since you found it for a great price, it’s faux fur and you can wear it 2 ways!

Not only that, but a vest is a great “transition” piece to go from fall into winter or just to wear all winter if you come from an area of the country that doesn’t get all that cold.

Do you have a new fall purchase that you are excited about?

I’d love to hear all about it, so please comment below:

  1. JoBee is totally stylin. She looks awesome for 75.

    • Hi PS,
      Yes she sure is! She has kept updated with her hair, makeup, and wardrobe and is also in great shape! Moreover her attitude is progressive and youthful! All those things combined make for a younger appearance!

  2. I’m so happy to have stumbled upon this blog! I love that faux fur vest, really stylish and affordable! You guys should check out an awesome boutique I recently discovered as well- http://www.kodiboutique.com. I’m hooked, plus their shipping is always free.

  3. How do you feel about a fuzzier version like this one? Is it too bulky. I love the color.


  4. I bought this vest today after seeing it here on your blog! I love it! Thank you for the inspiration.

    Since I don’t look great in brown, I bought a baby blue knit turtleneck to go under the vest.

    • Hi Julie, Great to hear and we think your baby blue turtleneck sounds perfect! We always like it when we hear our ladies are putting a little color in their wardrobe to spice it up!

  5. I just wore my faux fur vest last Thursday- I got several compliments! Love it!

  6. I am so excited to have found your blog!! It’s awesome!!!

  7. So adorable!
