Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work of art Highly recommended! I have wanted a PC vest since my first PC purchase, more than 2 decades ago. This was the one, I thought, looking at the photo on line. A gorgeous example of Kaffe Fssett's art, easy to love, priced well. The striped colors look like the diffraction patterns seen through our eyelashes on a bright day. As I imagined myself in this garment, it was also easy to forget that the model in the picture is probably 6 feet tall, with the bone structure of a hummingbird. So, it looks different on me. The usual size M I ordered is smallish and would never flare stylishly out as the model's does. Also, the vest's beautiful colors seem to cry out for a wardrobe of bronzes, olives, khakis, and denim blues to wear under it--different from mine, which is now based mostly on black, black/white and garnet red, sort of. Reluctantly, I'm returning this one but will try again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes, you can I've admired this vest's bright colors since it first came on the market, but hesitated to try it on, given my height (5'3"). Short ladies CAN carry this off, if they think monocromatically. Otherwise, a top and bottom in different colors will 'chop up' the look, make you look even shorter than you are, and distract from the beauty of the vest. I wear this with the Inglenook Tunic Dress, gray tights and grey shoes. Just let the vest carry the day w/ all its colors!
