So in my last post, I said I was going to talk about more handmade/crochet/afghan type sweaters. This is another recent addition.....
Inspiration: Miu Miu (Prada) Resort 2015 runway photos.

When I started looking around at crochet sweaters, I came across these on Pinterest. I know, kinda kooky, but when I have ever been known to wear normal clothes? For some reason, they just drew me in, especially when mixed with such crazy prints.
Of course, a quick search on eBay and Etsy found several sellers who were making their own vests for us common folk. I mean really, even if I had the means to spend that kind of money on one piece of clothing, I would like to think that I would still have COMMON SENSE and scout out a better deal. Especially for something that looks like it came out of Granny's basement.
So after doing my homework, I selected who I wanted to buy from. I choose blue/brown/white for my colors because I thought it would go with the most of what I own. For it's first outing, I decided to keep with the inspiration and do a crazy print. But I also can't wait to wear it over a simple white or chambray button down shirt and jeans.
