A Vest in New Light

Don't you love it when clothes that you've had for a while seem to pop out at you in a new light?  That's what happened with this vest.

shirt: Forever 21 // vest: Forever 21 // jeans: LC Lauren Conrad // shoes: Soda


I've had this vest for a few years now and can never find outfits to wear it.  I've had this top for a few months and seem to always get frustrated with it.  I hate wearing it alone.  For some reason I always feel like I have giant shoulders with it.  But after adding the vest?  Problem solved.  I love a good menswear inspired outfit.  I just realized that with this top it looks like I'm wearing a necktie under the vest!  Hah.

Do you have a piece of clothing that you can't seem to figure out how to wear?

  7. The vest is super cute, Julia. I have a black vest I haven't worn in a while - perhaps I should pull it out as well! ;-)

  15. Well, that's a cute F21 top! And the vest is adorable! I love a mixture of femininity with menswear! I have tops that make me feel self-conscious about my arms....And why are all blouses and tops so see-through nowadays!? I have to wear a cami under everything!...I also develop a new love for clothes that have been hanging in my closet for months; this will probably happen again this coming fall! -Jessica
