This vest is one of my favorite vintage pieces. I've had it for years and have worn it casually and formally, on its own and over blouses, camis, tanks, tees, turtlenecks, dresses and who knows what else. It was originally part of a three piece suit, but the cut of the pants and the jacket collar were too seventies-looking for my taste.
The blouse was a thrift store find from my trip to Pennsylvania in July. It was only 50 cents.
Blouse: thrifted for 50 cents
Vest: vintage from my mom
