Closet Tease-The Photogenic Sweater Vest

I couldn't resist. I bought this sweater vest a few months ago...

but today is only the second time I've worn it. I loved it when I tried it on at the store and when I wore it to work the next day. But every time I've tried it on with something other than a skinny jean I've not really been very happy with it. (You know me, I love versatility.) And sometimes, on a not so skinny day, it appears too long for my frame and seems to add some bulk in places where I least want it. Yet looking at the pictures, I wonder, have I been wrong?

Somehow This Top Never Leaves My Closet

I don't even know where to begin when it comes to this one....
I've had it for years! This silk Corey Lynn Calter didn't look like this when I bought it. The poor thing has had coffee spilled on it, the band that tied at the waist has been ripped off, (note the unfinished hemline,) I removed the sort of wilted flower that was originally on it and I've put it in and pulled it out of the Goodwill box for at least the past 5 years, though never wearing it until now. In fact, I was surprised when I came across it last week. And once again, I put it in the Goodwill box and 24 hours later pulled it out again.

Anyway, I loved the color when I bought it and I still love the color. And since the itch to buy something is catching up with me, now is the perfect time to refilter it into my closet. Ok, well since it's sleeveless, thin, sheer and February maybe now isn't the time to filter it in but I can't wait. Welcome back to the closet neon pink CLC blouse!

Is there anything that you're surprised to find in your closet?

A Moment of Weakness

Well, I caved. Only a little, but still, I admit it, I shopped. I bought this top...

What can I say? Slightly preppy, sort of vintage, it's so darn cute! It has more of a grey under tone than the picture shows. I'm not quite sure how I'll wear it, I just want to admire it for a little while...
