restyled denim vest (originally this jacket) | Theory scoopneck tee (a pretty penny) | Blank ankle cords (m.marie) | Dollhouse sandals (Ross) | Jessica Simpson scarf | Olsenboye foldover tote c/o jcpenney



Yesterday afternoon, while watching a marathon of the second season of America’s Next Top Model and recovering from a nasty stomach virus {hi stress, thanks for rendering my immune system completely useless} I gave my INC cropped denim jacket a new life as a denim vest.

I’ve worn this jacket to death and it’s gotten a little… stale. I went back and forth about putting it in the shop, but something made me rescue it from the sell pile time and again. Since a denim vest has been on my DIY list for over a year now and I haven’t found the “perfect” jacket to hack, I just decided to go for it.

Using a big sewing needle, a small pair of sewing scissors, and a whole lot of patience, I removed all of the seams from the sleeves while Yoanna rose to the top for the win. I’m super happy with the way it turned out!

Now I need a new denim jacket.

  1. So great. I love the whole look. I’m actually more excited about your Gladiators. I’ve been really unenthus’d w/ my collection of G-sandals lately. Love how you paired these w/ bright cropped skinnies. The whole thing is way cute!

  2. I’m obsessed with this outfit! You look great. And I 1. watched the same marathon yesterday and 2. converted a denim jacket into a vest as well. Can’t wait till the weekend when I let the little puppy out to play!

  3. LOL!! The real reason you restyled the jacket, to get a new one!! :) It is totally cute though! Did you sew the buttons up like that too?

  4. I definitely watched that marathon as well! (the best season in my opinion) Would you consider a blog post about jean jackets? I feel like there’s a fine line between a current stylish denim and looking like Nick Cage circa City of Angels. (I know I need help!) :)

What do you think?
