So, I’m curious. How many of you like distressed clothing? Do you think it’s a cool trend or not so much? I’ve had mixed feelings, but I DO know that I love this vest. Yes, it has a bunch of rips, but I actually think it looks pretty cool, especially since today’s outfit is pretty conservative otherwise. I paired the vest with a striped tank and skinnies for a casual yet polished ensemble.
I for one can’t get enough of the distressed detailing. For those of you wondering, I’m wearing a size small. Unfortunately, they don’t it in extra-small, but this size should fit.

Now, let’s take a closer look at my new boots from Cat Footwear. I am completely and utterly obsessed with these boots, and I can already tell that I’m going to get a ton of wear out of them this season! I’ve been looking for cute warm-weather booties for god knows how long. If you’re interested in getting a pair for yourself, they’re available in three other colors here.
Last but not least, I want to tell you guys about my new crossbody courtesy of Armadio. The brand was founded by three young NYC-based Italian entrepreneurs who took issue with the hefty markup on luxury leather goods in the US. Being from Tuscuny, the leather capital, they know first hand that the pricing model in America was off so they sought to bridge the gap between the Italian craftsman and the American consumer. They work directly with artisans to bring the highest quality local Italian leather brands and products at accessible price points. They’re a soon to be launched e-commerce marketplace featuring limited-run fine leather essentials straight from Italy. These artisans who craft products for Armadio are the same who supply huge fashion houses like Gucci and Prada.
