Spin the Pin - February 2016

I feel like I've been MIA from Instagram lately. I hate that.

I try to partake in a weekly fashion challenge of some sort but I've just had a really bad run with unfortunate things happening one after the other lately. Dental problems, breaking my curtains, getting over stressed to point of a mental break down, my only bra breaking, having a bad cold/cough/ear infection > meaning I haven't been able to see much of my new born nephew and having to decline my first ever offer to model for a well known plus size brand for a fashion parade (and get paid for it) because of my stupid dental problems!!! .... I feel like I could go on forever. I know they are shitty little things but it all gets me down...

Sooo I'm getting out of my rut and doing a challenge. And if there's any other challenges you think I should have done or should be doing then let me know and feel free to hold me to it! I know I've missed a couple of weeks of #NZStyleCurvettes challenges and I hate it! It's annoying me like OCD so I think I will have to go back and play catch up!

To the point... My Spin the Pin challenge for this month!

If you don't know what the Spin the Pin challenge is yet then learn about it here.

For this months Spin, I have taken full inspiration from the green fringed skirt in the Pin (above). The khaki green coloured skirt with thick fringing reminded me alot of a vest my sister and I bought not too long ago. 

I've always tried to get my younger sister (by 7 years) into opshopping. It's only just now, after years of trying, that I seem to  be getting some success with her. Recently we went op shopping together and found this sheer khaki green coloured vest with fringing, and we all know how "in" fringing is atm. We both liked it so much we decided we could share it.

So for my spin I wore our vest with jeans and these awesome wedged boots I got (for $2) from that same op shop trip. In hindsight I should not have worn jeans because it was soooo hot!

The vest is a bit frustrating the way it sits. I don't think we will keep it. The bottom of the sheer material, where the fringing is sewn on, has been gathered and makes the vest sit really weird, even so on my sis who is quite a lot smaller than me.

I feel like I should give this vest another chance before I send it off to an opshop again since I've only really worn it this once. What would you wear it with?
