Fashionable and Cozy: faux fur trim vest three ways

I got this faux fur trim vest at Maggie’s clothing exchange party. The shimmery silver tone is a perfect neutral shade to wear with practically anything in my wardrobe. It’s reversible with magnetic closures and has two pockets.

All three tops are from NORTHERN REFLECTIONS.

My Valentine’s Day outfit yesterday. This red long sleeve T-shirt came in an assortment of colours to choose from: I bought three (red, black and white) comfortable 100% cotton and well-made.

I made the necklace, a string of silver hearts in various sizes.

Worn with a black T-shirt and leopard print joggers for a fun, casual look.

I wore this black and white windowpane check top on my 70th birthday (also from NORTHERN REFLECTIONS) with faux leather and faux suede pants, a more elegant look.

Winters in Ontario, Canada are freezing cold; vests are wonderful for layering and keeping warm. Fashionable and cozy!

      Thanks so much Terri! The years keep rolling by and here I am 70 feeling as healthy and energetic as in my 20s. I started this blog when I was 58 (November 2011) almost 59 and this past November–with 10 years of blogging–has been enjoyable to meet people from around the globe and to promote slow fashion, ethical companies and local businesses. I appreciate your support and comments during the years we connected. 🙂

      At the moment, I’m busy getting settled in our new home as well as other urgent matters, so my blogging time is limited. I will be posting more photos of Kincardine, as well as thrifted items and slow fashion which I am very passionate about. 🙂

      Thanks so much! That’s my favourite outfit too, especially because winter is so dreary and dull in Canada. Red brightens and warms up these dismal, bitterly cold days.
