Behold my first ever quilted vest. I've never really seen the need for them so I've never owned one till now. I've owned this striped top for a while but never wore it because it shows all my lumps and how heavy I am on top, so I figured getting a vest to cover most of the top would make it useful. So a quilted vest serves as a cover up, provides warmth (This one kept me really warm), and adds a special something to any outfit. I may need to get another one. I opted for a less puffy vest so it wouldn't add any extra bulk to my already heavy top.
