F21 Two-tone Vest


For today's hashtag, I'll be posting about my current favorite vest.  So what's the story behind this two-tone vest?  Uhmmm, except for it being promoted as my current favorite vest, no NOTHING at all. Lol!  I got it at Forever21 and that's it.  Haha!!

I bought it because it looks edgy and yeah expensive (well yeah for a vest it's a bit costly) but the thing is my mind was already working overtime on the millions of ways (yeah I'm exaggerating) I could dress it up.  As a matter of fact, this threesome post isn't enough for it I might just do a part two! :P

But after wearing for the first time, I was set to find out the downside of this vest.  The instruction said it can't be hand/machine-washed. :(  For something that I can totally visualize wearing often, this is just too sad.  I can't imagine going to a laundry shop and spending more for it to be cleaned.  And so I set a challenge to myself last Sunday to personally wash it, haha!!!  You can just imagine how I was nervous while doing the cleaning and how delicately I handled it.  But I believe I was successful.  The fabric's texture and feel was still the same after a few hours of hanging it to dry.  And that's the end of the story for me.  Sorry for this nonsense.  Haha!!! 

And now for the threesome part.....

Obviously, the third one wasn't worn to work yet.  As you can see this is one of those dress and shoot rehearsals. :P  I'm still on the schedule of my usual clothes-rotating sked. :P  But I can't wait for this to be paired with all the other bottoms and dressed I can think of.  Like I said, a round two may just be around the corner. Hihi.  Until the next threesome post! ;-)
