I recently went fishing at one of my favorite local vintage shops and snagged something ultra chic.  Of course she didn’t give in as easily as I would have hoped; she put up a real good fight, but eventually the inevitable happened – I won.  And win I did!

Caught this vintage fly fisherman’s vest while grazing through the men’s section of a vintage shop.  It’s equipped with about 10 little pockets and one big pocket on the back, ideal for lip stains, glosses, eyeliner, floss rolls, breath mints, jewelry and probably a pair of those teeny tiny Dr. Scholls miracle flats, although you’d have to fold them a couple of times to make them fit.  I’m loving this vest and its androgynous demeanor.  I can already imagine styling it with ultra feminine pieces to achieve my signature sweet and sour look. 

Next time you’re at a local vintage or thrift shop in your area, peruse through the men’s racks and see what you stumble upon.  Maybe a luxe black blazer, or the perfect oversized white button down... ooohhh the possibilities!

Have a blissful Wednesday. xox.  One quick thing, or actually 2, before we depart.  Fashion week may be in full swing in New York but Seattle has more than its share of talented artists and designers, and they’ll be showcasing their work at our Fashion Week or weeks of fashion.  I’ll be keeping you guys updated on the festivities so stay posted!

Also, if you love fashions forbidden fruits and all its calm and chaos check out my VINTAGE FASHION EDITORIALS HERE.  It’s a good and JUICY read, I promise.  Ok, that’s all I have for now.  Ciao bella’
