Mad Men(swear)

I have had this vest for over 3 years, and I can only remember wearing it one time.  It should have been part of my closet cleanse, but don't we all have pieces that need to go but are still hanging?  I had to justify keeping this vest, so I brought it out today for a menswear inspired look.  It is hard for me to pull off menswear, but I gave it a go anyway.
Cami: Eddie Bauer
Top: Taken from my mom's closet
Vest: NY&C
Jeans: Old Navy
Shoes: Jessica Simpson



So what do you think, did it belong in the "donate" pile?

This just may be my favorit! I love the vest and shoes. I would love to wear this and am looking forward to trying to put somthing like it together for myself.

No way, you were so right to keep it, it looks really good on you, especially the way the vest is fitted! Love those metallic heels, too! I like the menswear look, I recently got some pinstripe shorts in a similar color to wear with tights this fall.

Well, hello, Kinsey's blog! Don't you look smashing. I always feel like I have a hard time pulling off menswear too. I think it just takes a little gutsiness, and you definitely have that.
