Calvin Klein Women’s Mesh Collar Vest

The newest addition to my closet is a mesh collar vest from Calvin Klein. I purchased it via amazon.com last week along with a white long sleeved t-shirt top to wear under it. I haven’t worn the white long-sleeved t-shirt top but I did wear the Calvin Klein Women’s Mesh Collar Vest. I wore it yesterday. It was part of my “A day of hell in a pair of H&M black leather ankle boots” experience. I wore it with a pink Eddie Bauer button down long sleeved shirt and my several years old DKNY jeans. As usual I carried the black faux leather Quilted Satchel bag I wrote about in “Ode to my 2 year old black faux leather Quilted Satchel bag“.

Seller says…

63% Cotton/34% Polyester/3% Spandex; Imported; Machine Wash; Vest; Mesh detail

PRICE: $32.85Buy It!

The vest works for the purpose bought. In fact I am dressed to step out wearing it again today over a 7 For All Mankind color-blocked denim shirt which I purchased last year at the same time I purchased the H & M boots that put me through so much torture yesterday.

What I think about the vest→It’s not the greatest quality, but it’s also not the worst. It does attract lint. The material is not particularly soft. It would have been nice if the pockets were real pockets instead of mock pockets; but otherwise I like it; and the fact that I’ve already worn in twice says a lot because I have a habit for buying things I end up not being able to wear for one reason or another.

Today’s look

Black vest over denim jacket with black jeans white sneakers black bag brown sunglasses

These were not the items I wore out today with my Calvin Klein Women’s Mesh Collar Vest but it’s the general style and color scheme. My 7 for all Mankind denim shirt with the Calvin Klein Vest, years old black jeans, white Nike sneakers (also years old), my old black faux leather Quilted Satchel bag and one of my two pairs of $9.99 over-sized brown sunglasses. It was raining today so I also had a large red and white umbrella.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
