So yes, I’m behind in keeping up with today’s trends….. oh nooo. As well, I’m a month or so behind in posting the different shoots I’ve done. Please don’t stone me, or should I say, throw fashion magazines at me.
When it comes to trends, I try my best not to hop on every one that hits the editorial pages, but I finally got on-board with this one.
It’s clear to see, I waited well over a year before I decided to wear the long vest. I wasn’t sure how much use I would get out of it. I was also concerned with the length. Would it be long enough on me? Should I go for the cocoon shape or a more tailored fit? Because I was on the fence, I was in no rush to find one.
I didn’t set out to purchase this vest but when I saw it on the mannequin, I slowed my stride down to get a better look. As quickly as slowed down, I sped back up and on I went in search of a dress. I left the store without purchasing the vest but for the next two days, I found myself mentally flashing back to it. That meant one thing and one thing only, go back and purchase it…. so I did. Fortunate for me, within those few days it had gone on sale.
