Then What Happened to Carrie Donovan? 6

Why do designers keep trying to make the faux fur vest happen? I have never seen someone wear one (celebrities don’t count – they’re not real).

You know why I never see faux fur vests in real life? Because they rarely, if ever, look good. More often than not, the fur looks like someone skinned one of those stuffed animals you can win at carnivals – you know, the ratty ones that look like they were fished out of a teddy bear crackhouse.

Old Navy’s jumping on the trend, which means that there’s one more thing I won’t be buying from Old Navy this fall.

I saw this in-store yesterday and had to take a picture of it (excuse the poor quality). The fur was matted and felt like cheap acrylic yarn. It stuck out at strange angles. Basically, if you told me that this had been made from the extra fabric for a Chewbacca costume, I would not be shocked.


The vest comes in two colors, because I guess there is just that much demand for cheap furry vests. This color, simply called “Tan,” looked familiar. It took me a while to figure out why, but I finally put my finger on it.

A warning to future Old Navy mascots: this is what happens when you don’t sell enough polar fleece.

The other color is called “Black Jack” on the site, but I’m pretty sure this is Insanity Wolf pelt.
