Wearing

I was beyond excited when I found this little velvet number at goodwill. It's very vintage, and although it reads that it is a size 14, it just fits me. (I'm a size 12, so I thought it would be looser, but whatever--vintage sizes run small I've found) Anyway, I love it. The colors are bright and the fabric is really soft. And did I mention that it's lined and has pockets? Well, it does.





I could totally wear this to a very dressy event with heals, but I added a...cardigan without sleeves (what do you call that thing I'm wearing, I really have no clue) to tone done the class a bit. Perfect for a laid back church service and brunch with the husband.

  3. I wonder what those are called too.... I own at least three of them and I've just been calling them long vests because I don't know what they are actually called either!


    You look great! I'm hoping to do some thrifting this weekend myself. :)

  5. It's so pretty! In French, I think it's called a gilet, but in English, gilet refers to any sort of vest.

  6. good to know :) Perhaps there isn't a more descriptive word in English--and I find that fact sad.
