Well, blogger hates me. I had a whole post written out and...poof, gone. So, suffice to say, this vest and these jeans are two of my most favorite swap finds to date. It doesn't hurt that they're a little fancy either. I'm not a big designer label person, but it's always nice to find something that I normally wouldn't seek out for myself. What about you, are you a major label fan or do you steer clear?

To make it extra fluffy, I flipped the vest inside out, and added a cozy flannel. I love the finished product, very 70's, which as you all know, I'm a big fan of.

Can you believe it's nearly December? The weather has finally decided to ACT like it's winter, at least a little bit, I hear it might snow today!

I don't comment on very many blogs (mostly because everyone says what I'm already thinking!) But I wanted to let you know that I always look forward to your posts for inspiration in my own life, and this outfit is SO adorable and perfect for me. Thanks for sharing! I'm going to re-create this asap!

Blogger was being a major pain in my keister last night as well so I feel your pain. Sometimes, though, an outfit this great doesn't need many words. Love this vest and jeans! Also, I am not a big label person either, but it is nice to find little treasures like these once in a while!

Michal said...

Really love this. You pull of the 70s thing so well and make me tempted to try it out. I love those jeans. Also, thanks for referencing such a great song in the title. :]
