Here’s THE Go International vest, which is now sold out on Target.com, but you can find several on eBay (for a heck of a lot more).  So with this vest, I now currently own three sleeveless jackets.  I’ll admit, I’ve had a tumultuous relationship with vests.  I was a fan back in the day circa 7th and 8th grades, and distinctly remember my first day of school outfits consisting of the full matchy-matchy outfits from the plaid vest down to the corresponding skirt and trim of the blouse.  Then I began to hate vests around the late 90′s.  Or maybe I was just over them.  And now I’ve come full circle, and have decided I like vests again.  I had planned to get rid of these old sweaters that have faux fur, but decided to turn them into vests.  I’m going to just hack off the sleeves of both — have them in black and off-white.

Excuse this old picture, but it was the only one I could find of me wearing said sweater and I happened to have gone bowling the last time I wore it.  Three years ago.  Love recycling old clothes and breathing new life into them.  Hope you had a fab weekend!

    Hi Becs, thanks for your comment!
    I’ve seen this vest a couple of times online – but couldn’t imagine how it looks… I love how you wear it with that sweet poufy skirt and also the pictures at all! The one on the stages looks like a take-out of a fashion magazine! :-D Awesome!

    What a great vest and I loved the way you styled it with the dress and boots! I’ve always had a weakness for anything military-themed. I remember having this love-hate relationship with vests as well – I used to have quite a few in high-shool too, then stopped alltogether. Lately I’ve found myself been drawn to them again…

    Cath and I passed on this vest because we didn’t like the way it draped- but it looks gorgeous and expensive on you. I especially love it paired with the bubble hem ofthe dress and the red boots- parfait!

    okay…i absolutely love the vest….And I had an addiction to them too in the 6th to 8th grade…hated them in the 90′s…and now I would seriously wear them everyday if i had enough!
    great idea to alter your sweaters with fur into vests!

    The skirt is really cute.
    I was scrolling down your blog, and when I got to the cat with sneakers I almost fell of my chair. Cats and dogs are hilarious sometimes.

    AND you delightfully look like such a Radiant “Vintage Officer” !!! I really like the contrast between the “military mood” AND the “sleeveless shape”, truly mesmerizing . . .
    ps: Thanks INFINITELY for your comment on “stilettosteticooooooooooooo” !!!!
