boys boys boys, with hairspray and denim

At my fashion class a couple of weeks ago, my teacher brought out this resource they get a few times a year that shows European trends and stuff. I saw this vest (sorry about the bad phone photo!) and fell in love instantly.


Since then have seen so many denim vests like this. Not just denim vests - BOR-ING! They look like jackets that have had the sleeves hacked off, which makes them so different from just normal vests. Here are a few pics I've saved, some that I just happened to come across and then others I especially looked for.


Okay, the first one is almost a boring one (and Andreas is just there because he's hot, and actually IS a boy with hairspray and denim, haha)... but if Taylor's also wearing it, it's gotta be good (okay, for most things). Anyway, so now I'm on the lookout for some cheap, dorky denim jacket to chop (and maybe bleach - maybe I'll need more than one)!

I also plan to cut one of the $2 t-shirts I got from Dimmeys last year into something like this...

Also, it's not looking too good for my formal dress at the moment, so wish me luck - I'll need it...

EDIT: A couple more I forgot to add... I'm sure you get the picture, though!


And I hope I didn't just get rid of my comments by editing this, thanks for them by the way! Love you all.

I think denim vests really do work for the summertime. I really like them but I fear they aren't versatile enough, you know? Or maybe I'm not creative enough :D
