An odd and creative sort of vest


This piece of textile -- a soft sort of fleece, printed on both sides, same design  but with colors reversed -- looks quite odd as a circle with two holes in it. Putting arms through the holes, flipping the excess material over the shoulders makes a shawl collar. The back part dips into a rounded hem. This was a choice use of a gift certificate to the Sea Breeze shop on Hyannis's Main Street, a store Rachel and I browse maybe once a summer, ooh and ahh over the the interesting fabrics and colors and cuts -- clothing with an individuality we have not found in other stores -- but a wee bit above our financial comfort zone. However with a gift certificate I browsed all the sweaters which were 20% off but, having many sweaters. I decided this was the one-of-a-kind garment I wanted from that store. It can be worn with the turquoise background out or the black -- it needs to be worn with black sweater and pants.  No problem, as I have several of each,

I may have been doing a mini-rant about the younger fashions a few days ago, however I think this is fashionable, quirky and my kind of thing. My shoes were my usual flat ones.

Well, it's lovely and I love it and the colors, well perfect. That store has an amazing variety of great choices but I agree with you....pricey. Glad you snagged a good purchase, one that you will long enjoy. Happy shopping!
