Fur-ocious Vest

I find most of my unusual or exceptional garments at thrift or resale stores, like the flowerpot skirt I'm desperately trying to figure out how to winterize. Around 2007, however, I found a total gem at H&M: a leopard-print faux fur vest that has now become a winter holiday tradition. I discovered it on a shopping trip with my mom and much to my delight, it wound up under our Christmas tree. (Thanks, Santa! You know me so well.) I proudly wore it on New Year's Eve that year and sometime in December every year after that. Notably, I also wore this vest on my first date with my husband - before I learned that he, inexplicably, has no appreciation for leopard print. (Good thing my sparkling personality won out!) Its most recent trip outside my closet was to a tasty VIP Happy Hour at the newly opened Mexican restaurant, Cantina Lareda. Check it out:
Which styling do you like better - with the red shoes & black pants (worn in 2011) or with destroyed jeans and a studded blouse? I think I like it with jeans better. . .On a side note, I am definitely losing points for originality with the photo location. Forgive me- it was 30 degrees!

Clearly, I'm not alone in my fur-ociousness:

Dressed up with a dress or dressed down with jeans, the fierce factor of fur vests is off the charts! How would you wear a faux fur vest?
