Obsession of the Day: True Religion Leah Denim Vest

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge fan of denim. I also hate trying it on. Wel all know the quest for the right pair can be an all-day affair that requires a bottle of water, very patient friends and a really good sense of humor. I’ve got a fabulous denim item that you can just slip on and look effortless cool in one shot: a denim vest.

Not just any denim vest, mind you: this is raw-edged, ruff-hewn jean fabric at its very best. Faded to perfection with a racerback and hardware detail, this item adds the perfect dash of rocker cool. Layer over a soft tee and skinny denim with a black leather jacket for day-to-night chic; throw it over a sundress and add wedges for California-cool daytime style; or take it into the night over a tank, sequined miniskirt and embellished sandals. It adds instant attitude to any look and will transform just about everything you own with just one purchase.

Beyond cool denim that doesn’t require days of time in the dressing room AND can transform my entire wardrobe in one shot? Done and done.

True Religion Leah Vest ($185), available at Bloomingdale’s
