I used to really hate puffer vests.

Freshman year of college, I would have gagged at the thought.
So ubiquitous, so unflattering - really just an overall outfit-ruiner.

And you guys know how I always reference the transforming power of certain pieces as "insta-cool"? Well, 5 years ago, I would have claimed the very opposite of these babies.
But after trying on the above pictured ugly-on-the-hanger puffer (in blue floral, what's more), I confess, I'm a convert.
I threw it on over an evening dress, and was blown away by just how well it ruined the potentially sophisticated aesthethic.
If you know me at all, you'll know that such an ability is .... irresistible.
Above, please find an embarrassingly scatterbrained piece of mind-vomit, brought to you by the addled brain of yours truly.
Do you guys have puffer vesteroonies? (Ralph Lauren seems to have quite the motherlode). If so, link to your pics, because I want some styling ideas!
