Whenever I hear the word "vestibule" I think of Chandler from Friends being stuck in the ATM vestibule with Jill Goodacre. I tried to embed this video here but it's been disabled: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FvJIbvm596w
Anyway, the whole point of the "vest" words is that today I bought a vest from my friend Kim's clothing line called Orphanage. It's sold at a store called Indie Boutik Collective. Kim takes clothing and redesigns and repurposes it into unique, edgy and funky things. My husband has done some photography for her.
Vest: Orphanage Clothing
Shoes: Vivienne Westwood Anglomania for Melissa (from consignment store in NYC)
This vest used to be a men's suit jacket. I'm actually wearing it backwards (the other side has bust darts) but I like being able to use the pockets. It's pretty versatile.
I also own two other Orphanage shirts - one I bought at a store called Twig and Hottie in Vancouver and was so surprised to find Kim's clothing on the other coast.
I've worn this skirt two other times. I always seem to pair it with a black top. Will have to break out of that habit.
I've admired these shoes on eBay and on other blogs so when I saw these Melissa Three Strap Sandals in the window of a consignment store in NYC I was pretty thrilled. And they were my size! They are so comfortable, and awfully cute. I was concerned that these Melissa rubber shoes would be like the old jelly shoes from the 1980s that made people's feet sweat but they really don't. And you can wear them in the rain!
That's all for today. Remember - Gum is Perfection.
