When I first saw this white vest from Forever 21, I had wanted to buy it in a heartbeat. But in the end, I didn’t. Some of the reasons were because it’s white so it’ll get dirty easily and winter is just around the corner so I’ll need something warmer. I walked away that day and resisted impulse buying. I knew if it was meant to be, I’d see it again! I’m sure you ladies know what I’m talking about (Haha).
And so I saw it again when I was window shopping! This time, I was with my two friends and with their help, I purchased the vest. Did I have buyer’s remorse in the end? No – this is by far one of my favourite vests in my closet, so no regrets whatsoever.
My whole point is that it is often hard for us to resist temptation and wait when it comes to impulse shopping, especially if you’re not 100% sure. But once you’re sure (i.e. you can’t stop thinking about it), you should totally make the purchase! There’s no rush for anything. You see, this vest and I was fated.
I paired the vest with my black silky pants, a cotton shirt and some pointy suede heels. What do you think about this look? I think it’s great for girls on the go! I actually wore this outfit to a meeting and an event a few weeks ago when it was a bit warmer. On a side note, this outfit is meant to be worn indoors. So please wear a jacket ladies if you’re heading out, especially if you are based in Vancouver since it’s quite chilly nowadays! Now, if you’re from a warmer area – this may just be the right outfit for you!
