Daily Outfit: 3/23/10

Cashmere sweater vest, Penguin via Century 21
White button-down, AnnTaylor
Red skirt, thrifted
Gray tights, Target
Red pumps, Tsubo Acrea

Can you tell I took this myself? Oy. Apologies for the grainy … also check out that wacky thermometer on the side of our house. I forget that thing is even there.

I adore this vest. Anything that combines red, pink, and gray in one garment is tops in my book. I’ve worn it with my red pants in the past, but think it gets along quite well with this wee red skirt.


See that mangled feather pin? When I brought this vest home from NYC and showed Husband Mike, he dubbed the accompanying feather pin a “boob dart.” Sadly, I left my boob dart atop my dresser, and Simon Kitty attempted to devour it. Because, you know, anything with feathers is a bird and obviously must DIE. I’ve been meaning to buy some better feathers to shove into the little dealybob, but just never got around to it. So mangled boob dart it is.

    I love the throwback sweater vest, however I often find them difficult to style outside of wearing a button-down blouse underneath. What other blouses have you used to 'remix' this sweater vest?

  • K.Line

    I LOVE this vest. So fantastic. What a score.

  • Sunny

    You look incredibly sexy and sooo well put together there! I think its one of my favorite looks of yours! But I feel like if I wore it I'd look too much like I was going for a "sexy secretary" look – and not in a good way.

  • Luinae

    You are so good at rocking shorter skirts, Sal!

  • Sidewalk Chalk

    Bwahaha, I laughed about the boob dart thing. It really does add to your outfit and it's a nice touch.

    I really like the color palette in this outfit — the vest is so cheerful. And your photo taking skills aren't bad — the side of your house does match the colors in your outfit, so hooray for that!

    You look great! This outfit is extra "enboobening" as you would say…I hope that is not weird to comment on!

  • Sal

    laniza: Ahhh, you've caught me. I have only ever worn this vest with button-downs! But I'll dream up some other options for us both, promise.

    (Hard G) Gillian: Not at all! I love hearing that I've successfully enboobened. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Chelsea

    You are the cutest thing I've ever seen! I love this outfit and want to copy it STAT! Just need a sweater vest and a white collared button up and I think I can do it. Love it!

  • The Girl in the Yellow Jacket

    Very studious!! love it

  • A-C

    lol, boob dart! This vest *is* fantastic. And the skirt is divine.

  • Sheila

    Look at your legs! Fab, just fab. Oh, I know about feathers. They are evil and must be eaten!

  • susan said so

    Seriously, this may be my fave outfit on you yet! SOOO figure-flattering! ANd those pumps are killer.

    Nice job! (The boob dart is the icing on the cake!)

    I love this look – that vest is darling on you and love the colors ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Jane W.

    You look adorable! I love the vest over the shirt, and that you seem to match your house paint.

  • Elissa

    I will borrow "emboobening" from your lexicon and apply it with a heavy hand here. Seriously, could this look be any sexier???

  • WendyB

    I need to design a line of boob darts.

  • tiffany

    I have now added 'boob dart' to my lexicon and will be on the lookout for opportunities to use it!

  • LENORENEVERMORE

    love the vest, I like grey & red combo as well…

    Heavens, you just look like a very proper and hot teacher here.=) Your waist looks tiny. I like the wacky boobdart too.

  • Rad_in_Broolyn

    Great outfit. I love the mix of red based colors. What a great Century 21 find! Sorry that Simon kitty got the feather dart but it still looks quite nice.

  • FashionTheorist

    Wow, I love the red/pink/grey color combo. And that vest is not only emboobening, but, um, dewaisting? Your waist looks tiny!

  • Peldyn

    LOVE the sweater vest! I bought a few of them a couple months ago and dearly love them. Now seeing yours I want one just like it, oh I am such a magpie *grin*

  • – tessa

    I LOVE this outfit! I now have a great idea for how to wear my sweater vests – and I was having SUCH a hard time with them – thank you, Sal!
