So I won't say I'm an anarchist, but I'm not all into being nationalistic, that's for sure. So I made this vest:




I purchased this at the Salvation Army on half off day. It was too big for my husband but I feel like, at least in NYC, anything denim other than crappy pants are hard to find at good prices when thrifting. So I grabbed it and didn't look back. It's vintage Jordache and was in okay condition when I got it...somebody had tried to make it smaller then took out all the stitching and it reeked of cat piss and cigarettes. I'm not one to shy away from gross clothing so I distressed it like crazy, did a front spray die (the color is now dark plum), and gave it a good washing. I also added the back patch which is made from vintage 70s fabric. I've already used the fabric on a skirt of my own and in my latest photo backdrop. It seems like an innocent enough fabric but to those who are cynical like me... Wink On another note, it's dark in the first 2 photos but I also custom dyed my husband's Levi's purple Smiley
