This vest has been all over the blogosphere, but that didn't stop me from scooping up one of my own. I've wanted a vest like this for a very long time, but they were either too pricey for me or too puffy. The one I'm wearing is a knock-off of a popular J.Crew Factory one (that sometimes goes on sale for 50% off!). It's from one of those sites that has items for only a few days at crazy discounts, and then the items expire, so it's no longer available. Sorry! I'm very pleased that it's not too puffy at all, and I scored it at a price that I was comfortable paying. Finally got to cross it off my wish list!
The great thing about real life vs. the blogging world in regards to style is that my friends don't read blogs and haven't seen this vest around much, so it's still fresh for them. I got a ton of compliments on it, which is of course a great feeling. :)
I featured this vest over a month ago in a post: Herringbone Quilted Vest Four Ways. Check it out for more outfit ideas!
