DIY Denim Vest
Nylon's August denim issue got me searching for a denim vest. Then I realized, I could make one. Now this is my kind of DIY — some minor snipping and all done.
The candidate was an old Gap denim jacket that I realized I rarely wore because I have a denim hoodie that's much softer and chicer.
After amputating the sleeves, I had a much more wearable denim vest. It's edgier than a jacket and better for our more temperate climate.
The outfit: thrifted dress (thanks, Jenni!), Michael Michael Kors clogs (thanks again, Jenni!), Forever XXI necklace (artfully stuck on a button) and a 5-year-old denim Gap jacket.
