See my vest, See my vest

It's not made of real gorilla chest, but it is a nice vest. It was a dollar find that I was never able to style to my liking before. I am still not 100% sure it is me... What do you think? Should I keep it or try to sell?

    What's it made of? What size? I'll buy it from you if you tire of it!

    I think it looks good with the dress!

    I really love it on you.  That collar! I love the way it goes with your hair. Also love how you've paired it with the vivid, black-containing print.

    I think it's fun!  Love it with the yellow snake dress!

    And the white bag is genius!

    I know little about fur, but you pull it off to my eye.

    Rae, you look amazing. Only you could pair a vest like this with snake and white and end up looking so fantastic!

    It looks great on you. The question for me is always - how do I feel in it? If it doesn't feel right then I will never wear it even if it does look good.

    YES!!!  Snaps to you for your Simpsons reference!  Not enough people have seen that episode.

    I think you have styled it perfectly!    You could be the girl who comes onstage to sing with Adam Levine at the Maroon 5 concert in this outfit.

    It looks great with that dress--I like how the dress softens the look. It's a little hard to make out the details on the vest, but I like the collar and the lines of it a lot! I could see it becoming a workhorse year round, with jeans, skinnies, trousers, drapey track pants. But I agree with Caro, how it feels on you should weigh heavily in the decision about keeping it.

    Well Denise/Cocolion has completely sold me on this sort of vest so I would look at some of her pictures for inspiration. I like it but am stuck on the is it you question, especially since you are sort of in a state of change right now.

    Love this styling and hope you decide to keep it as it really rocks!
  • Kari replied 6 years ago
    I think the styling is perfect with that dress, Rae.  I also like the length of the vest with that dress; much more unexpected than a standard cropped vest.  
  • Joy replied 6 years ago

    Perfect just as you've styled it.

    I love it on you- great with the dress and boots!

    I really like it.

    Thank you, I knew I could count on the collective YLF eye.

    Ceit, I've added a close up of the vest - it is a ponte knit by Mike & Chris. I think the size is small, so it is supposed to have that oversized look. 

    LBD, high five! I am so glad someone recognized the reference!

    Shevia, yes, Denise is the reason I bought it! It didn't feel right on me with skinnies, though. Maybe because I was trying to dress it up over blouses, when I should stick to casual tees like she does.
