Throw Back Thursday

Talk about Throw Back Thursday, this denim vest was purchased by my aunt in 1986 from the Benetton store in New York! I was thirteen, my first trip to NY, and my mom and aunt decided that I needed a makeover. I was dressed in cute little dresses for the trip, but after taking a look around, they both decided I was too old for the little girl look.

I remember all of the pieces that were purchased on that trip, but this is the only item that lasted. I found it several months ago in a moving box in my parents basement. I've been thinking of just the right way to style it, and I am so happy with how this look turned out! This will not be the last time you see it.

This is what I wore to the Beauty Brands Laura Geller Beauty event. It was the perfect mix of casual Friday and event attire. And the pop of colors with the yellow pumps and neon necklace pulled it all together. Gotta love a vest that can be styled 28 years!

I love the way you styled the vest with your jogger pants! Its so funny how things come back around again and how you can style them completely differently. You look so trendy.
