Fancy A Shag?

…a shaggy fur vest I mean. What did you think I was talking about? Spotted in New York – her vest is by Sonia Rykiel. Generally accepted fashion wisdom would say that this piece should be worn with black skinny jeans and motorcycle boots. I really like what she’s doing here with the knee-length dress and tights though…the skinnies/moto/shaggy combo feels more fashion-clone, “Sex and the City” to me. Here it’s still an eye-catcher but looks more casually tossed on what-this-old-thing-ish…xx Mr. Newton

  1. I’m looking for a vest just like this. Too bad Sonia Rykiel is too expensive for me. 🙁

  2. Hi Beth – yes “real” shaggy vests and coats (which are often made of Mogolian lambswool) can be fairly expensive. As these vests are quite popular at the moment however, you can now find good quality faux versions. Hit the upcoming holiday sales at places like Zara, H&M, Topshop, or even Bloomingdale’s…I’m sure you can find one to fit your budget that looks great!

  3. Hey – no that’s not Kaya – although she does look like her…
