well vested

If you read this post, you know that I've been looking for a utility vest. Ever since I accepted the fact that there was no hope of getting the Banana Republic one that I wanted, I've been searching for a suitable alternative. This has been going on for weeks. But yesterday I had a breakthrough -- I found not just one, but two vests that could potentially end the search.

Thoughts? I'm leaning towards the J.Crew version. You can't tell from the photos I have here, but it has a removable hood, and I'm a total sucker for a hood. I'm just pissed that I didn't spot it before J.Crew's 30% off sale promotion ended on Thursday.

Of course, I also have this in my online shopping bag:

Obviously I don't need it -- I mean, I literally just bought this sleeveless trenchcoat from UO -- but seriously, how cool is this vest? Hannah found it earlier this week and sent it me the link, and I truly wish that I could justify buying it. I'm just leaving it in my shopping bag to torture myself.


  1. I've been seeing lots and lots of utility jackets, and am on the same hunt for one! That one from OU looks like a nice option, I'll keep looking for one on my city, wish J Crew opened a store here!
