Recessionista: Easy Rider

On one of my shopping expeditions today, I stumbled on this cuter than cute denim vest at nationwide retail chain H&M. It's super cropped and very cool!

I was really taken with the price of $49.95 because I recently spied a very similar vest from another retailer who was selling it for around $300! I was floored. For a vest that's not even an exotic?!

I love the two-tone gold and silver studs on H&M's version, the fit of the vest and how adorbs it looks over a sweet summer white dress or even a printed full-skirted number. The vest also works amazingly well with a long jersey maxi dress or over a button-front tunic mixed with a nice belt.
