Wish List: Fawning Over Faux Fur Vests

Gryphon / Via Spiga / Simply Vera, Vera Wang / DKNY

A faux fur vest has been on my wish list ever since I fell in love with one at Zara last year, just before their website launched e-commerce. The vest wasn't in stock in my closest store (which is about an hour away), but I thought if I could just hold out until I could order it online, I would snap it up. Well, e-commerce opened and everything flew off the virtual shelves, including my cute little vest. Hmph! Fast forward to this year and I spy faux fur vests everywhere! So my faux fur fixation has been reignited, and the search is on! I'll be paying close attention to both style and fit: I'd prefer one that is black or brown... or perhaps a subtle animal print; and since I'm short and curvy, it needs to hit at just the right spot above my hips to not make my short frame appear even shorter. I also think I'm partial to belted styles...

Are you into the faux fur trend? Which of these is your favorite?
