Welcome back to Round 6 of #TheMessyProject!!! If you are new around here & have yet to hear about the project, you can check out all the info HERE..... but here's just a quick little intro to help you get more acquainted to the project ---->
So for this month again I wanted to do something Holiday Themed....& to me that means sparkle! So I was on the hunt for something sparkly, but not your typical sparkle blouse. The best part of this project is trying something new & wearing something you normally wouldn't wear. So after much searching I decided on this fabulous item ------>
A winter white vest with a silver sequin collar. I know some people have a hard time wearing white in the winter so I wanted to show you that it can be done with just the right amount of white. Not to mention I love vests. I think they are such a fun accessory to add to an outfit. Plus with this vest you can dress it up or dress it down. I decided to dress it up. Most people would never put a vest with anything other than a tee & pants but I thought why not throw it over a simple black dress.
So I took just a simple plain black dress with a sweetheart neck & added the vest. The sparkle on the vest gives me the feel of being dressed in diamonds. so because the outfit was still plain I decided to dress it up with lots & lots of diamonds. I added a big sparkly diamond statement necklace along with a few different sizes of diamond bracelets & 2 big diamond rings on each finger.
Don't you just love my super white leg? Its like a freaking ghost. I must spray tan asap. But besides my ghostly looking leg I decided to add my short booties to give the outfit a more rocker feel & I completed it with a small vintage silver chain purse that matched perfectly with the sequins on the vest.
& of course since it is winter just add a black jacket for those chilly nights, for example a pea-coat I don't know why but our 'wish' Christmas tree ornament was calling my name when I put this vest on so I decided to add it to the shoot as a prop.....make a wish.
Soooo how would you have styled the vest? Would you dare to pair it with a black dress?
Wanna see what the other 4 girls did with the vest!? Check them out....they're all pretty different
