What happens when you casually mention to your mom that you really want a.) a denim vest and b.) something marching band uniform inspired ala the Balmain jacket that had everyone drooling? Somehow, as I found out the other day, she'll use the powers of the universe and her undeniable knack at thrift shopping (I blame my shopping addiction on her) to combine both desires into one super awesome, power vest.
Yes, if you can't tell, I am pleased.
Especially when most comments about this outfit relate back to Michael Jackson. Michael, this one is for you.
