Personal Style Post-Sweet and Wild {Giveaway}

Tuxedo vests are a total throwback to the 90s and are in dire need of a comeback! They add a sense of medieval spiffiness reminiscent of Robin Hood charm. I purchased mine light years ago at a warehouse sale in the industrial ghettos of Downtown LA. The building was tagged with graffiti and looked despondently abandoned. Its desolate appearance was beguiling as on the inside, rows upon rows of irregular size treasures discounted up to 80% off retail were being devoured by a packed house of savvy shoppers. Sadly, the brands featured in the sale are now completely defunct. I miss going to these chaotic shopping events. Nothing beats the serotonin rush of digging and striking gold at a warehouse sale.  

I wore this outfit on a very productive shopping trip at American Rag, one of my favorite boutiques in LA. The La Brea Blvd shop is uniquely LA as it houses an impressive collection of contemporary favorites like A.Wang, Commes des Garcon, and Dolce Vita as well as an eclectic selection of overpriced vintage. After my AMEX had its fun, I headed over to the Palihouse to attend a Wet n Wild Beauty party. Juicy sliders, soft chocolate chip cookies, exciting conversations with the WNW team, and unrestricted access to makeup made Jenny a very happy girl. What a fabulous night. I don't want to say too much but I promise GBF is about to get a bit more wild!
