Maxi & Vest 2.0

My last foray into wearing a maxi dress and a vest didn't go so well.
I decided to try it again and after seeing how 
Penny Pincher Fashions styled her vest, I knew exactly how to pull this look off.
Why haven't I ever thought of pairing a statement necklace
 over a vest?  
I went pretty matchy - matchy on the accessories which I don't do  too often,
 but since the dress had 4 different colors I just went with it.
I love everything about this maxi dress except that stupid drawstring waist.
  What dress designer thinks this is a good idea?? 
 The sad thing is that I have been noticing this trend a bit too much.

What do you think about the vest and statement necklace look?
Have you done this before?
  Is it something you would try now?

The dress is awesome. You could easily replace the string by an elastic band (probably seamstress) and wear a nice belt instead. I think it would make all the difference.

This is great-- I love how you did the necklace!

A lazy designer who doesn't use a fit model makes a dress with a drawstring waist. I agree, it's not the best idea... why not just leave it out? Ugh.
