"New" Vest

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Vest: ebay, Tank: by corpus, Jeans: F21, Bag: vintage, Sunglasses: vintage

I've had this leather jacket I bought on ebay for a while now and since I like the fit of my H&M one so much more I decided to take the sleeves off this one and turn it into a vest.
