I'm a big fan of items that can be worn multiple ways. This sleeveless trench is one of those items. It can be worn as a dress or a vest. It can be worn belted or worn open. Over pants or a over skirt. Layered or by itself.
The possibilities for this piece are endless.
I first fell in love with this item over the winter and immediately recognized it's multi-outfit potential. I stalked it for weeks, watching the price go down, waiting for my moment to pounce. It finally went on clearance.
I was too late.
It was sold out online and in all my local stores. But when it's love (and a bargain) you persist and pursue despite the odds. So I called in reinforcements.
And bless her heart, without question, she put her life in Virginia on pause to track down this sleeveless trench/vest/dress that her crazy daughter became obsessed with and had grand visions of layering 100 different ways.
If that's not love, I don't know what is.
