Jenni’s Multicolored Dreamvest

Oh yes. A rainbow vest. A crocheted rainbow vest. A rainbow fest.

I digress.

What a mess. (Don’t drink and blog.)

I purchased this 1960s multicolored vest off of Etsy. Can you believe it had been posted for a year and nobody had purchased it? I think it was waiting for me.

I wore it to the Rose Bowl Flea Market last Sunday. I ended up wearing it with the yellow dress below. I wanted to wear something vintage. But also something cool. As in, “not hot.” Of course, I believe this fits both labels. I also wanted my husband to be able to quickly find me in a crowd. I think this was pretty hard to miss.

First, I paired it with my Free People dress that I got from The Nordstrom Rack. The necklace was gifted to me from Simply Livly. It is perfectly bohemian. The shoes are my favorite. They are Deirdre Lace Wedges. I bought them during Anthropologie’s additional 20% off sale. Making these 52% off. Not my best discount, but I love them. They have actual crocheted looking lace on the sides of the shoes. The lace is very well incorporated.

I did not wear these shoes to the dusty flea market.

I wore my tried and true everyday ten year old sandals. The shoes I can run in. From zombies. Different story. (Please see don’t drink and blog above.)

I took a nap before these pictures. Hence the lines on my arm.

The other way I styled this vest was with my yellow Target dress that was $25. The necklace is an Anthropologie layering necklace. It is on sale. I purchased mine during the additional 20% off sale for $12. But it is still a good price at the $15 it currently is. It is called Bijouterie Layering Necklace in Medium. It is sold out online. My local store had ten in stock last week. If you cannot find one, maybe, just maybe, I have a couple for a giveaway in a few months. ; ). Anyway, I know they are in the stores. I have worn this necklace four times this week. Great find!

Do you have a piece of clothing that makes you smile?

    • Thank you Jess! You are so sweet! I do love that vest. I do not want to hang it up and stretch it out, so it is in a drawer. I just do not want to forget about it.

      Thank you for the compliment! Have a happy week!

    • Thank you so much Sayaka! I feel very lucky to have “snagged” it. ; )

      I loved your outfit yesterday, as well. So flirty and feminine!

    • Thank you Judi! I wish I knew how to make it! I love Etsy. It is my favorite. I hope you find some awesome, unique items with great sellers. At fabulous prices! I am so glad you like my vest!

      Thank you so much for commenting! It made me so happy!

      Have a wonderful week!

  1. Yeah, I wish I was that talented to make something like that too! I noticed that you have the Quirky Heirloom Throw from Anthro – I own its “cousin” the Homespun Throw – I want Quirky too! That would be AWESOME if I could somehow make THAT! Dream on though! I should look for something like that on Etsy – I’m sure it would probably be cheaper.

    • I love the homespun throw! The “quirky” one I purchased when they had it on a sudden random 25% off. It lasted for a week and then went back to full price. I would watch for that again. Of course, I have also seen some beauties on Etsy. I love anything handmade like that! I really need to take a class.

      I’ll keep my eyes peeled for you. Have a merry Wednesday!
