{ Obsession: Balmain vests & tulle skirts }

This week has been THE week of obsessions. First, I rang every Target store in the state to track down a pair of wedges in the prettiest shade of fawn. Secondly, I stalk half-a-dozen parcel forwarding services so I can find the best and safest deal to get these pretties delivered to my doorstep. And then, queen of all obsessions, I came across these Balmain vests and fell desperately in love with the Sportsgirl version.

I've never really liked vests before, but my idea of a vest has been reinvented after seeing these. This style is perfect for transeasonal weather. I love the Balmain tulle skirt too and want to do a DIY of my own, complete with multi layers and stud detailing, as soon as I have some time.

Ahh love it all! Would love to see how you go with the tulle skirt. I tried making one for a costume party a few years ago but it turned into an epic fail haha.

Sweet. Probably the most easy to wear item next to a scarf. I like the pattern.

Lovely vest! It is healthy stalking whatever store sells the item you are obsessed with. If you don't, it could send you mad. That tulle skirt is so gorgeous! It makes me want to be a ballerina D:
