Are you down?

No longer for the North Faced enthused outdoorsy type, the down vest has become more of a standard piece in my wardrobe.  I wear it indoors and out. Throw a cozy faux fur collar or hood on it, and I'm sold.  I purchased this particular one at an Eddie Bauer outlet, like three years ago and I swear I live in it all winter.   I even slept in it a few nights in September - ok - our heat was out but it sure did keep my toasty.  The beauty of it is that my fashion staple for the winter is from Eddie Bauer peeps and the outlet for that matter. And, yes, as these photos reveal, I may have found myself in another single white female situation at work the other....but I just may have had my vest first...maybe. Btw, price per wear = negatives, for sure.  Husband, are you reading?

Believe it or not, my favorite vests I found upon searching for a new one are from Old Navy...$39.95 a pop.  
Love the collars on these!

and of course i'm swooning over this $270.00 beauty from Madewell!

look at the super cozy hood on this one from Patagonia

Love mine!! And I love your price per wear reasoning. I have used your reasoning many times lately!

I just ordered one from Lands' End this year and love it! I tend to be hot-natured and hate wearing a coat. The vest is perfect - keeps me warm but doesn't get too hot.

Enjoy your weekend!

love vests as well! The fur collars definitely add something to them.

I have a really bright yellow RL one, but my favorite is my Burberry one with check lining!

Love these! I was just at a football game this weekend where I noticed the down vests out in abbundance ~ I have to admit I don't have one yet, as I was always a little unsure of how much use I'd get out of it, but I'm now sold I need a down vest in my life :)
