The Perla Print Wrap Vest

White jeans Polo Ralph Lauren - Black turtle neck sweater Pierri New York- Black flats Vera Wang Lavender 

Houndstooth print vest Classiques Entier - Doctor's bag Venezia  
From a once upon a time Nordstrom sale comes this dainty houndstooth print vest. The Classiques Entier vest is of superb quality, its thick, marvellously lined, great fabric... but I have yet to wear it a way I really love and feel good in. 
While fabric is luxuriously thick, it feels chunky when I wear it. So chunky in fact that I dare not even try to tie the vegan leather sash it came with, because it makes me feel like a sausage. A well dressed sausage if I may add.

I have worn it before with black culottes and also jeans and a tee... maybe I should try it with a skirt, shorts or a dress ? What do you think ? 

 

Oh, and just in case you are wondering, yes, I went on to google images of other women (models and bloggers) wearing the vest for inspiration and here is what I found:

I want to know what you think.

I like the vest, especially with the jeans, and I don't think you look like a sausage with the belt on.

I really, really love that piece - I'd give it a whirl with shorts, I could see that being really fun. But, of course, all the other ways you've worn it are pretty perfect already.

Such a fun piece! And I have a jacket like that where I never button or belt it because it makes me look bigger than I am, haha! Yet I keep it around because its Valentino and was $2 during The Outnet's birthday sale years ago ;)

I think the belt looks awkward on the models. I think maybe that vest is TOO structured for a tie-on belt. I like the vest better open and think it is more slimming that way. It's a very nice piece, you just have to find a couple of things that you like wearing with it because it is a classic keeper. Maybe the shorts on the bottom; long over short silhouette.

So sorry you have this feeling in this vest, dear Lorena. I really love it how you wear the vest here and you did in the past. And also the inspirations you found in the internet are regarding my taste. Maybe you will like the vest with a simple black dress?

I think you wear it well Lorena. I don't wear vests well and have stopped buying them, because they're so challenging. LOL
