ive been pretty anti-vest at times over the last 4 years or so since they really got popular and were sold at malls and things, and when i did find a vest to love and wear, i never would wear it open. my favorite outfit this week, though,has been my homemade, embroidered dress with a denim vest worn open on top. its not a bad look at all, and it doesnt look at all grungy or sloppy, i dont think, so id say it was a vest success!
today i failed my driving test. im pretty sad about it, but because ive been so crazy and emotional this week i dont know if im even stable enough to say how much of a disappointment this is without taking it over and above any rational reaction. in fact, ive pretty much set the standard for crazy behavior last night when i cried the entire way through "(500)Days of Summer" for no real reason. oh, and today i almost ran over a kid.
before the movie madness, though, i set out to makeover a burnt orange sweater of my brothers using a tutorial from Queens of Vintage, adding a fur collar and nipping it in by several inches and it turned out really nice. the problem is, though, i feel like a total butthead wearing fur, and even though its old and yadda yadda yadda, the fact that im encouraging wearing fur as the hip thing to do is not cool by me, and i cant deny that im doing just that, so for now im going to reserve it for wearing at home or passing off to someone who doesnt have as much of a beef with fur as i do. teehee "beef with fur" vegan jokes.
heres the finished product! today i wore it with jeans and ended up looking sort of sixtiesish, even though the sweater's styling makes it look a little older than that.
movin on, movin on..
