Recently, I've had quite a few friends, co-workers, and readers asking for fashion advice on whether to buy something or how to style a piece. I thought it would make for a perfect mini series! So, whenever I get a 'should I get this' or 'how do I wear this' question, I'll be sure to share. First up, the J.Crew Herringbone vest!
My friend recently texted me wondering if she should invest in this J.Crew vest. But before I say 'yeah' or 'nah' you should know a few things about my shopping style:
1. I typically only buy things that are on sale. Especially if it isn't a basic or an 'omg I have to have it' piece. I'll wait on it, everything goes on sale eventually. If not, it wasn't meant to own.
2. Can I work the piece into 3 different looks?
3. Do I need it? This theory doesn't apply to stripes, loafers, or lipstick though. Those are always necessary.
4. CPW = Cost per wear
So I asked, 'was it on sale?' Nope. But it's $108. Which I know isn't cheap at all.
Can it be worn 3 different ways? Absolutely! I mean, herringbone is a classic and it's black and white.
Did she need it? Living in San Francisco, layers are a must. And what's a better layering piece than a vest?
CPW = if she wears it 10 times this fall/winter it only cost her 10 bucks a wear. I can barely get lunch that cheap.
So I told her YEAH! Now, I kinda want it... Thoughts? Would you invest in this vest? Here are a few looks she sent me of babes wearing the vest if I haven't sold ya yet.
Can't decide on something? Purchase a piece on the whim (or buzzed) and need some inspo on wearing it? Send me a note, I'm happy to help a sista out.
So you agree... this vest was a total yaas
