Outfit: DIY Vest and Utility Boots

Greetings Fashion Pad Readers,

Welcome back from the weekend! I got back in town super late so I only had time to put down my things and dive head first in the bed, lol. Quick outfit post from last week below.

Pictures were quickly taken with my droid....anyways, this vest was originally a long jacket with long sleeves. I was getting ready to get rid of it because I just never had any use for it but then I thought about altering it. Turned out okay. Wish I had a serger to finish the edges around the sleeves so they can look really tailored!

Love this bag. Found it beneath a pile of clothes in a vintage store in Miami. I mean, who tries to hide things these days??? I'm a beacon to a great find! LOL!

Necklace - Forever 21
Vest - DIY (originally found at Macy's)
Dress worn as a Top - Random boutique
Handbag - Vintage
Jeans - Nordstrom
Boots - Charlotte Russe
