Faux fur vests, many shades of plum and gold accents are cause for some serious autumn glam. Of all seasons, autumn is my favourite – namely for the fashion. I love layering and layering loves me. But mostly I love making a statement with a faux fur vest.

Call it the glamour girl in me, but there’s something that’s just so fab about faux fur. I found this beauty about a month ago at Winners (talk about #WINNERSfabsfinds) and couldn’t resist the buy (but who could at only $40 CAD?) Cue MAC Rebel (an autumn glam staple in my makeup collection) and lo and behold this OOTD was born.

Couple said vest and lippie with jeggings (as I mentioned in Dress me preppy, jeggings are my go-to in autumn and winter) and a white tee (because you can never go wrong with a white tee) and voila! For that extra touch of autumn glam, I opted for layered necklaces, my Michael Kors boots (a DSW fab find, no less) and watch – there’s nothing like gold accessories to really dress up an outfit.

True story about these boots: I have a size 5 foot (though I typically opt for a 5.5-6 in boots) and thin calves, so as you can imagine finding boots of any height tends to be difficult for me. I accidentally stumbled upon these boots in March, at the end of last season, and while I had no business buying boots I just couldn’t pass them up because, yes, they fit both foot and leg all too well!

But who am I kidding, I never regret a shoe purchase no matter the time of year.

The season has only just begun but I’m already teeming with the thrill of all things autumn. That goes beyond fashion, of course. With Canadian Thanksgiving only a week way and other autumn-y tingz on the horizon (side note, I’m venturing to the Philippines at the end of October with John and his family for a two week vacay) I can’t wait to continue to share with you some autumn-worthy looks (glam or other!)

Get the look:

Until next time,



  1. Everything about this outfit is perfect! Even with that lovely faux fur vest, it’s these deep wine jeggings that really attracted me. They really are the perfect autumn pants and they look great with the white tee and those sharp boots! Love the gold detailing on them. MK makes nice boots, yo. You also look so edgy and gorgeous. Love how Rebel looks on you! Another lovely photoset, too. You look glowing! Have a great trip <3
