wearing // DIY duster and a vegan leather jacket

Well, apparently I am becoming a huge fan of long long long hemlines. I didn't even realize how smitten I am with them until I was thinking over my purchases from the past few seasons. None of the hemlines are above the knee, and most of them are ground-skimming! Well, what do you know? Long silhouettes are just so classy and effortless, and I love the bohemian vibe they can add to an otherwise unremarkable outfit, like this one.

I fashioned this duster vest out of a jumper I found at the thrift store. The color is perfect, and it's a great heavy rayon material. All I did was cut the bad boy down the middle and BAM, success. What was once an oversized frumpy jumper is now a fantastic maxi vest. It billows out behind me in a quite mysterious and sinister way which makes me adore it even more. I love pairing it with this jacket, especially because the vest has nice big pockets where the jacket only has awkwardly placed chest pockets with a zipper teeth that mutilate your hands (if it wasn't for the pocket thing, this would be the greatest jacket ever in the whole world).

The floor length duster is magnificent. Thrift stores often have the most amazing finds. The color is seasonally spot on as well. :] // itsCarmen.com ☼ ☯
