Spring!




I bought this vest the other day with a friend. I went absolutely insane when I first saw it, but my friend basically thought I was crazy.

Me: It has three elephants on it! See! Two on the front, one on the back! Elephants are goodluck! This vest is goodluck!

Friend: Yuh-huh....

Me: Look at the sequins!

Friend:....

Me: The embroidery! Look at the detailing!

Friend: I dont know you.

P.s. Thank you all for your kind words yesterday. I was a little angry that I apparently didnt have the qualifications or whatever to quote Shakespeare. Anyone can quote Sheakespeare, anytime.

Wearing a vintage elephant (lucky!) vest, vintage levis cutoff shorts, gap pocket tee, david aaron boots, and black wool floppy hat.

Ehem, flower porn everybody. Its the new black.

KEREN said...

What an awesome vest ! =)

Pretty Pirate said...

When the trunk is down on the elephant it is actually considered bad luck, some eastern cultures say it dispenses good luck. But the vest is gorgeous, what a nice find. I would totally wear it anyway. ;)

Those shorts are an awesome fit! And I need to get my hands on some crazily embroidered/sequined ethnic piece of clothing. I would love to dress it down like you did here. KUDOS.

I'm glad that you found that lucky vest..;D
It looks great on you.
I love the flowers around the tree.;D
Hope you are having a nice day..

Heyla said...

LOVE the vest, you should take a pic of it to see the details closer.

& about the Shakespeare quote-event,you were meant to get support on that one.
tbh you shouldn't have even mentioned it. don't give that kind of people importance. like, reconstructive critics are more than welcome but there are some comments that JUST DOESN'T WORK.
you're free to quote, read, talk about anything you want. free press?

I love your vest and your floppy hat! Haha, it's always funny when friends just don't get it when you're shopping together. xx

Hayley said...

I agree, Shakespeare is for anyone and everyone. Personally, I love Shakespeare, but then I am a complete dork.
Completely love that vest, I, however, do not have the attitude or style to pull that off, which you quite clearly do. Love the outfit there.

Great flower porn. The vest is very different and quite cool. Although I'd probably react the same way as your friend to be honest haha. You do pull it off though. (^_^)

Freddie said...

Oh I LOVE that vest! And your hat too! I almost bought hat like that once but my mother told me it was too impractical for Ithaca. Where it is almost always winter. haha, alas

Oh my. I think i saw the same waistcoat as this one in crystal palace, in England. It had a big elephant on the back that sort of stuck out, like it was padded. I wanted to buy it because it was amazing, with all the detailed embroidery but it was far too big. But I think it was the same :)
