As big as we would like to imagine the blogging world to be, it is actually quite small. We all know who the "big" bloggers are and we all follow each other on Twitter and read a majority of the same core blogs. Knowing that, it is easy to understand the power of the "blogger" and her influence over an item, designer, collection or store. When one of "them" wears something you find it on everyone within a few weeks. I am the first to admit that I have run out to buy an affordable piece after seeing it on one of my favorite bloggers. As you all know I haven't been as focused on blogging, reading blogs and interacting. Well I took a couple of hours yesterday to catch up on many posts, comment and come away inspired. Never has the power of an "item" been more prevalent than seeing it all at once.
I bought this Old Navy military vest when it first hit oldnavy.com. I have had it for about a month and have worn it at least twice a week. It was a great color, an amazing price (I got it with a code for 40%) and is super versatile. Imagine how COOL I felt when I saw it on ALL of my favorite bloggers. No joke! I am excited to show you all just one of my seven outfits that I have paired the vest with.
Check out the following in the vest...

Something was up with my camera because I look almost cartoon like. My legs do NOT look that tan or smooth in real life!
