MY STYLE FIX: OVERSIZED DENIM VEST

Happy Hump Day! In this life, there's two times a woman should never wear white, and unless Mother Nature visited earlier than usual this month, I managed to avoid that bloody disaster.  
Unfortunately, I lost my mind, and against all rhyme and reason, I decided to wear white on the subway. Yeah...the same subway with the gonorrhea seats(see previous post), mystery odors that are very reminiscent of rotting flesh, and wet spots that one can only hope is just water.     
Even with knowing all that awaited me, I still wore the dress because of course in my mind, after scanning the millions of dresses in my closet,I had nothing to wear, and that one frock, out of all the dresses, was the only cute thing I had. The only one. 
Well, within less than a few minutes of boarding the train, I somehow managed to acquire a mystery stain right in the the front of my white dress, which clearly mortified me based on it's proximity to my who-who. I don't know what was in that substance, but I digress.
I was so panicked because I was on my way to a fashion event where I was quite sure a stained dress would not have been viewed as avant-garde.
But, as luck would have it, in Midtown, the streets are lined with so many clothing stores that as soon as I existed the subway I ran into the first store, headed straight for the sales rack, and selected this sequence dress and denim vest to replace my epic failure.
I proceeded to have my Clark Kent moment in the dressing room, and managed to show up to the event, skillfully rubbing shoulders with the likes of VH1's "Love & Hip Hop" star EmilyB as if nothing happened. 
Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by<3

    1. Oh no (sad face). Here's the upside, the denim vest is so versatile that even if this pairing didn't work for you, you can totally pair it with tons of other stuff (ie colored/floral skinnies would be cool). At least now you have the option, and trust me it will come in handy as soon as the temps drop:) Xoxo
