Beaded Vest/ Random Thoughts





I was out of town for a few days and am just getting everything  back together. This is a pretty casual outfit but I mainly wanted to post it because of the vest. It has this really nice beaded detail and pattern that reminds me of the gypsy-chic look from Gucci's Fall 08 line.  


There is nothing I don't love about these looks!  I suddenly find myself coveting a gold coin belt... it'll have to wait for now as my wallet is still hurting from recent online purchases (from F21 and urban outfitters to name a few).




Also wanted to post a pic of some recent thrift store purchases. I'm going to get the peach-colored dress hemmed to make it a mini and also get the jumpsuit taken in.  The silver shirt is a little sigfreid & roy, and, unlike their infamous tiger, I'm going to figure out how to "tame" it and make it wearable.

The solid blue top/minidress looks like it has great possibilities, is that beaded strands across the back? Ah, you're my thrift store hero. Have you been to Modcloth.com? It's a bit pricey, but some stuff is so unique, it's worth it.

As for the sigfried & roy-esque top, for some reason, I see thin suspenders? Maybe a high-waisted pair of short shorts, and perhaps black tights and Mary Janes with white stitching. Not to be too specific or anything... ;)
