The denim vest.
Okay, so I really resisted this one. I swore I would N-E-V-E-R. I mean, it was just painful watching the denim vest come back; it was like reliving my tween years all over again.
No, wait; you know what it was?
It was admitting that I was officially old enough to experience re-living a fashion trend. Or actually being willing to re-live one of ‘em. Important point here: the only reason I was willing to eat crow on this one? Because Anthro got this one right; I mean really really right.
The Simone Denim Vest tailoring is shut-the-front-door fabulous. Her washed-out coloring is that perfect “I’ve been hanging over an old porch railing for a year in the hot Texas sun” and the cropped length of her sings “She’s got it! My Baby, She’s Got It!!” (Thank you, Bananarama.) It also didn’t hurt to see Ms. Simone styled deliciously on several of the gorgeous Anthro managers/employees in my store. I was actually IN LINE to check out, saw the vest on another wickedly stylish SA, threw my hands up and said, “I give!” Promptly marched right over, grabbed my size and made peace with my Guns N’ Roses inner self.
Here’s a few ways I’ve been wearing her.
Anyone else make friends with Simone? She’s pretty fantastic. Super highly recommend. I’m wearing a small here.
Apologies for the house shots; I am officially melting now that it’s thick into Summer here in Texas. Sweat starts rolling down every nook and cranny the second I open the door, and that makes me more cranky than words can properly convey. (Yes, I dream of living in the Pacific Northwest Every. Single. Night.) We had a rain storm roll through today though, and it was like Christmas in the summer for me.
Hope you all are keeping cool. GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCEMENT coming later this week!!
