“You cannot fake chic but you can be chic and fake fur”

Happy Monday! Hope you all enjoyed your weekends! Saturday I headed out to a Chicago suburb for a baby shower for two of my college friends! After all the shower festivities, our college roommate Amanda who lives in Iowa stayed over. We started the night at an Old-school Italian restaurant called Club Lucky in my neighborhood. If you are ever in Chicago and are looking for a good dirty martini and delightful home style Italian food you need to go here! We ended our night at another one of my favorite neighborhood spots Innjoy and danced the night away to 80’s and 90’s hits! My feet were killing me the next day because we were dancing so much!

Usually, on Monday’s I am really tired and sad that the weekend is over, but I have Friday off to head to Michigan for Stacy and Kyle’s wedding! So all week I am going to be pampering myself to get ready. Starting tonight with a slender cow total body treatment at Soho House Chicago. This invigorating full-body blitz uses the Slender Cow Scrub, serum and body butter. It begins with a full dry body brushing and exfoliation to revive dull skin and a detoxifying massage that firms and tones. Sounds like a great way to start my week!

Even though it’s starting to feel like spring in Chicago I wanted to share some of my favorite faux fur vests on sale for you to snag and store in your closet for next year! There are so many end of the season sales happening, why not take advantage of an item I feel like never goes out of style! Up until I purchased this vest from Nordstrom by Topshop I had a deep brown faux fur vest from Forever 21 for ten years. Every time I wore it I received compliments, even when I used to work at Nordstrom. People were shocked where when I told them where I got it and how real it looked! Don’t you love when you snag such a great find that was super affordable? I decided it was time to retire that vest (just another excuse for me to go shopping). I’ve rounded up some of my favorite faux fur  and shearling vests!
