How gorgeous is this long military vest? For me it was love at first sight as I began to plot how many ways I would style it throughout the year. The obvious go-to is how I wore it here, as a dress, but how cute would this be layered over denim and a fitted blouse or tee? Only one wear in and I have already worked out how I will wear it the next four times. I will get my money's worth! ;)
The price was another factor when deciding if I would get this dress. It retails for $158, which is an investment piece as far as I am concerned. When I took into consideration how many times I would really wear it, I started to look at the quality. I was happy to find that the quality of this piece is really amazing. The fabric is thick and the craftsmanship is impeccable. I already have my eye on a few other items from this line at Nordstrom (this dress though!).

What do you think of this trench vest (dress)? Do you ever do a lot of thinking before buying some of your higher end items like I do?
