The Vest

This vintage vest was originally a coat, but when I saw Prada's Fall collection it inspired me to hack off the sleeves. I wore it yesterday for the first time with a Topshop tee (I bought about ten of these because I love them so much), Madewell jeans, Louboutin pumps, Elizabeth and James aviators, and a Karla Deras x Roman Luxe cuff on each wrist.

That vintage coat is so majorly cool Karla!
I love the funky pattern and crazy colors as well as the classy cold buttons. Cutting off the sleeves was definitely a good idea.
The coat makes a fantastic vest and looks amazing paired with such a simple outfit!
