The Trend: Sparkle-y vests!
I celebrated my birthday recently, which means a truckload of new clothes added to my already very abundant and very colorful wardrobe. It’s one of the many reasons I love my birthday. I mean, who doesn’t love getting new stuff? And it being your birthday is the perfect reason to wear fantastic, beautiful, over-the-top outfits to show off to the world. But even if you don’t have something significant to celebrate, one of my most recent favorite clothing additions is thisÂ sequin vest from Forever 21. I am in love with it (love, love, love, love). I need not say more.
One of my best friends bought it for me (because she knows I’m a girl who likes her shine and sparkle) and I think I’ve worn it with practically every outfit ever since. It’s impossible for this vest to look bad with anything. The first time I wore it with a simple white t-shirt, jean cutoffs, and black Franco Sarto wedges. And it was adorable. The second time I tried it with a floral minidress and a pair of chucks (Converse) and it was still adorable. The third time I was getting ready to go out with friends and my buttoned-up vest acted as an attention-grabbing blouse over a black, fitted, high-waisted skirt. The point is that this vest is infallible – it can do no wrong.
I recommend this vest to anyone who wants to be the center of attention (especially since most mommas take the back seat to our loved ones or responsibilities). You deserve a moment to shine (plus, it’s only $22.80, so you can sparkle sans guilt!) So, my message is clear: try it… You won’t be disappointed!
