AJ Wears :: Another Vest

You guys, Forever 21 is KILLING it with vests right now. We broke up for a while because everything there was Phoebe Buffay meets Blossom mixed with someone's acid trip, but we've made up after my last few vest purchases. I've mentioned before that vests are my summer survival piece for work; they add the visual interest to a plain outfit without the extra heat of a blazer or cardigan. Plus, this one's long. You know how much I've been loving that lately.

Vest, Forever 21 (exact).
Top, Old (similar from Nordstrom).
Pants, The Limited (exact).
Heels, ShoeDazzle (exact).
Bag, French Connection (similar from XXI).

AJ Wears :: A Grey Leather Skirt

Wearing a leather skirt in Summer, even a faux one, was a little ambitious. "A skirt is a skirt!" I thought to myself as I got dressed this morning. As it turns out, no. A skirt is NOT a skirt when it's created to be a tiny sweatbox, and any skirt is definitely not acceptable when it's 97 degrees outside. Sacrifice for fashion! We'll call it sacrifashion.

Top, J.Crew (similar from WHBM).
Skirt, ASOS (exact).
Necklace, Versona (similar from Nordstrom).
Shoes, Parfois (exact in pink // similar from ASOS) .
Bag, Barbara Bui (similar from JCP).
