I always have trouble putting my style into one word when asked, but I have finally come up with an acceptable answer: eclectic. I love incorporating old with new, cheap with expensive. This denim vest is one of those old cheap finds, I found it thrifting, and it’s from GAP circa 2000. It’s definitely going to be a staple in my spring and summer wardrobe, and it cost me a mere $3. Thrifting is where I have found some of my most beloved and unique items, and it’s always a great place to find denim. Altering denim is also a fun project, so if you find an old jacket that fits your torso snug but the arms are a little tight, why not cut it? Denim is one of the few things that looks good cut and distressed.
For this outfit I paired the vest with a long sleeve chambray dress. I love the look of the ‘soft denim’ dress with the hard denim vest. It gives the dress more character, and changed it from being a little matronly to stylish and young. Chambray and denim is going to be another one of those things I see myself wearing a lot of this year, it just works. For my hair I was inspired by Shosh from Girls. She always has the most outrageous hairdos, but I’ve always loved her oversized buns smack dab in the middle of her head.
