Sunglasses: Downtown Threads, Mock Neck: Boutique in Augusta, Georgia, White & Silver Vest: The Clothes Exchange, High Waisted Jeans: H&M, Pumps: Steve Madden, Watch: Yard sale, Earrings: ZinniaThe longer I look at these photos the more of an 80’s vibe I’m getting.
I’ll be honest the sunglasses were an impulse purchase during one of my weekly trips to Downtown Threads. I liked the angles and the thin metallic floral trim and how different they were from my other sunnies. They’re not exactly flattering but they have a certain Grace Jones quality to them that I like and if I’m being totally honest I give in to the $1 box of random accessories at register at least 60% of the time.
Similar to my sunglasses, I’m not sure if this vest is exactly flattering but something about it spoke to me so I picked it up. It’s hard to see in the photos but the vest has silver and white metallic threading that gives it a subtle sheen. The shoulders are actually my favorite part, they’re structured without being padded and add a unique element to the silhouette.
I’m glad I took a chance on both these pieces. They’re fun and now that I’ve given them a whirl I’m excited to try working them into my everyday wardrobe. I think this vest would be great with a silk blouse, the contrast of the voluminous silk sleeves with the structured shoulder could be great.
