Reindeers in Vests
Did you know that it wasn't until last winter that I got my first quilted vest ever?
See, I had a thing against quilted vests - the same kind of thing I have against sleeveless turtlenecks, short-sleeve wool coats, leg warmers, etc. Why leave extremities exposed for the sake of fashion? I mean, if it's cold, cover up, right?
But then I had one of those I-don't-know-if-I-really-want-it-but-it-seems-real-popular-so-I'm-going-to-just-get-it moments when I saw a sale popback for That herringbone vest last winter. Those moments usually end up in a big ole L moment for me, but this time I vested and didn't look back. I was toasty and wore that thing all over the place.
And this year when the quilted vest popped into the JC factory store, I bought two more. Because a girl's gotta have options, right, even when she's just throwing a vest on over a hoodie for a midnight run for marshmallows? (So I obviously no longer have a thing against quilted vests. But sleeveless turtlenecks? Someone's going to need to explain that one ...)
