Hello there! So, as you've most likely noticed, I am totally wearing a vest today. A cropped fringed vest. So the story goes, about a year ago, my grandma was shopping at JCPenney (as she is apt to do) and, knowing that I like clothes that most normal people would never wear, she picked up this vest for me. It became a running joke in my household to reference the vest and ask why I hadn't worn it yet. Safe to say, I tucked it into the very back of my closet. Until this morning (cue dramatic music). I had put together my outfit (sans vest) but it just felt a bit boring, like it was missing some sass. And there it was, peeping out behind the striped sweaters and floral dresses - THE vest. I think it ended up pulling things together nicely. Also, the teacher I was meeting with today ALWAYS wears button downs and vests from thrift stores and stuff, so I may have been subconsciously channeling his style? That's normal, right? Oh goodness. Anyway, the moral of the vest story is that you should keep any weird/ugly clothes your grandma gives you, because she may or may not be able to see the future, a future in which you will want to wear a fringed cropped vest.
