I mentioned yesterday that I was racing around town all weekend trying to find a dress for my company Christmas party and, like a huge dingbat, this is what I decided to wear. Cute? Um, duh. Warm? Perfect amount of layers. Practical? B*tch, please! Who wears three shirts, knee high boots, and the skinniest skinny jeans with zero stretch ever placed on planet earth to the mall while speed shopping for a dress in an hour and a half timeframe? THIS GIRL. It took way longer to get undressed and redressed than it did to try on the 15 or so dresses that caught my eye. Silly little blonde girl...
Anyways, I've been loving the look of the jackets that are out with canvas bodies and leather sleeves. Instead of running out and buying one, I decided to create the illusion of one with a vest and faux leather jacket. I think it actually works!
