Finally appropriate

Tell me if this has ever happened to you: You spot an item of clothing in a store. You fall madly in love with it and take it home immediately. Then, for the next few weeks, you take out that item every day and try it on. You layer it. You wear it on its own. You accessorize it. No matter what, though, it just never seems right.

That was the way this vest was for me. I knew it was love at first sight, yet day after day, it went unworn in my closet. I've probably had this vest for a good month and a half now, and today, I finally took off the tags. Hoorah! I was actually quite pleased with this layered look. I was less pleased, however, with the pictures that I got of the outfit. haha





And here's a close-up of my favorite part of the vest:

The zipper-pulls are little Flying-V guitars!!! LOVE them!


Here's a shot of my new ring! It's handmade by a local artist and I'm in love with it!

Vest: Abbey Dawn line from Kohl's - $31
Pants: Forever 21 zip-ankle jeans - $16
T-Shirt: H&M - $13
Shoes: Baker's - $65

I seem to have the same problem quite often. Clothes I just love but they never see the daylight because something just doesn't "fit". That's a really rocking looking vest. The guitar detail is cute. Love your shoes also :)

Mrs Munster: Exactly! It just didn't "fit" for so long. Perfect phrase. hahah
