Lookbook: Coats and Cozy

Recently, I was invited to participate in a VIP online shopping experience with GigaSavvy. I was able to pick out a couple coats to review from the 2012 Fashion Collection. 'Tis the season for cozy coats, comfy capes and stylish jackets, so I was very happy to browse the online catalog.

This fashion retailer has a plethora of clothing so it was hard to narrow it down to only a couple of pieces. Brands like DKNY, Style&Co. and Steve Madden are just a few of the options available.But two specific pieces caught my eye so I'll share one of those with you now. This Bar III sleeveless patterned faux fur vest is as snugly as it looks. When I first put it on my hubs looked at me and said, "You must be warm because you look really warm." The collar has a faux fur texture that also provides the inner lining of the vest. You could even choose to wear it inside out for more versatility.Michael Kors sunglasses | Bar III vest c/o GigaSavvy | Proenza Schouler sweater | Jewelmint mod moons bracelet | Forever 21 jeans | Vera Wang sneaker wedges

The vest goes really well with just about anything that you'd wear this time of year. I paired it with my new favorite Proenza Schouler sweater. This is what I wore to the Mountain View farmer's market, which seemed to be the place to be on the weekend because it was crowded with people who wanted organic everything.My only issue with this vest is that it seems a bit big on me, but maybe that's what I get for being so small. It doesn't matter because I'll be wearing this a lot in the next few weeks. If you live in the bay area, be sure to spot me out via this vest.What do you think of this look?

This is perfect for winter because of its versatility, love that you can wear it casually on the printed side and more formally if you'd like on the furry side, so ideal! Thanks for giving us a glimpse of your lovely PS sweater, adorable!

Love how you styled your sneaker wedges! I'm feeling a little better about my purchase and willing to test them out, I have a feeling they'll be more versatile than I think right now. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

It's a very nice outfit. With a pair of heels the looks gets completely transformed, so it's versatile. Thanks for posting the photos and feel free to drop by me too when you have time.

I love the vest, it does seem a little big up towards the top but I think it's something you can definitely work with.
