Man, Oh Man

How many times have we fashionistas, staring in our closets, trying to decide what, what, WHAT to wear, said to ourselves, "Men have it so easy"? I know I have said it more than a few times.  At which point, I like to think like a man and pull on a little men's wear. 

There is something about a tailored vest on a woman! A vest looks great over a blouse, under a jacket, and even, if you are pumping up the sex appeal, on it's own. Paired with some ladylike accessories, a vest can look distinctly feminine.

I like very light pinstripe on a vest, which makes your torso look subtley longer. A fitted style and tucked waist always make one look leaner. Longer AND leaner?  Yes, please!

    This is a great menswear-inspired look. The monochromatic style is wonderful! I love the dove gray pumps. They elongate you and add just the right touch of femininity.

  4. I think you vest looks great with your puff-sleeve blouse! :)

  5. Thanks all! I love that brooch, too. I'd really like to find more - any suggestions for places to find cool brooches?
