Rated 5 out of 5 by FashionLover Fabulous Vest
At the original price, I might have said this vest was overpriced but at the clearance price I say run, don't walk to purchase this beautiful vest. In my opinion, it does not look faux and it does look very high end. I found it to be true to size and I like the fact that it is a little bit shorter. Here are the 2 factors that I like the most about this vest. First, it is reversible, which I think makes it very versatile. Wear the suede side for a more casual look and the fur side if you are looking to be dressier. Also, the seaming makes for a more feminine, less boxy look. I think this would make a great present for a fashionable friend.
Rated 4 out of 5 by paulette r good quality works but not perfect for petites
There are faux fur vests and there are faux fur vests. I own many such vests of different qualities. The less expensive ones feel and LOOK less expensive. I was surprised to see any review say this looks cheap. To my well trained (at this point...shop too much!!) eye it looks and feels like very good quality. Both sides are good neutrals that go with most things in one's closet. My issue with this and all GILI vests is that they are designed for misses figures not petites. I ordered the 0 in this. I take a PP or an SP (depending on the fit I want). A misses 0 never fits quite right. The 0 in this, on my small frame is a little big and doesn't lay perfectly the way a petite version would. However, belted (which I always do) it looks good. I use the GILI obi belt in expresso to belt this. The wider 3" Jill generated obi is the one I prefer for this vest. I have a very small rib cage and can handle any extra bulk a vest would give. The price at this point is, in my opinion, very good for the quality on this vest. It is reversible and that 's more expensive to do. If you are on the fence give it a try.

Love! Love! Love! I normally wear a 2 or a 4 in GILI's numeric sizes (5'5", 125lbs, 34C). I decided to size down to a two as I didn't want to have this too big or loose. It's perfect! I have worn it a couple of times with my obi belt and received plenty of compliments both times. The best is extremely soft and luxurious, you wouldn't know its faux! It's warm enough to wear on cool days without overheating or needing a coat (and I'm one to always be cold). I'm so glad I have added this to my "must haves".
Rated 5 out of 5 by jdw Love this vest
Being a woman in her sixties I am particular about looks and fit. This vest is such a buy at this price. I bought my usual size 2 in GILI tops. I would say if you were broad through the shoulders or larger in the bust area you may want to go up a size. The styling is wonderful for my age but I would think it would span the ages. It is not "fussy" in any way and nothing trendy so as not to be out of style in a year. The feel is soft. I typically wear XXS in most brands of tops from QVC- hope this helps in judging your size. I would not want to oversize too much on this vest since I think it looks better more fitting to the body.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Healthysmiles Best Purchase Ever!!!!
I ordered this in a size 4 and a size 6 because I was unsure of which size would work best. The size 4 was a perfect fit. The 6 was too bulky and really large under my arms. It is so soft and very warm. I get compliments honestly every time I wear it. Yes, it was a pricey purchase but I am so glad I got it. Love my G.I.L.I purchase!!!! ❤️
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shop Too Much 5++++ Stars!
Exquisite! I often go up a size in GILI, depending on the garment measurements, and I did with this vest. The fit is perfect and the style is really sharp. But what I love the most is the look and feel of the faux fur. It's so shiny and silky! I have a few other faux fur vests that are very nice, but this is the bomb! I was considering buying a genuine sheepskin shearling vest, but why pay 3-4 times (or more) the price for a real one when this faux vest is so magnificent? I love the reversible feature, but I'm sure I will be wearing the fur side out most often.

Looked great on tv loved the style and look, but was disappointed when I received in hand. Not worth the money, returned it

This needs some kind of closure in the front otherwise it just doesn't lay right. I tried using the wide obi belt but that doesn't really work because it's alittle too bulky to belt. It also shed. Both sides just felt alittle cheap to me.
