Chain Gang Swap - The Beaded Jacket








You guys, I'm so excited to show you these pictures from the Chain Gang clothing swap I participated in. This fun, sparkly jacket made it's way across the US to be worn by different style bloggers. None of us knew how the other was wearing it and it is so fun to see the individual spins put on the same piece.

Here's my take (sorry for the pic quality, I had to use the broken lens - boo):


Now that you've seen what I did with it, visit these fabulous blogs to get a full story on how each of the Chain Gang sisters wore it:

Tanya from November Grey
Devon from Devon Rachel
Sarah from Living Goldie
Yola from Yola Thorp
Noa from Sunset and 5th

That is really lovely piece, gorgeous beading! Like how you paired it with the lighter khaki colour to emphasize the detailing on the jacket. Beautiful as always :)

Hey Jenn - you look fab. I'm totally digging how you wore this in such an effortless way. It's also fun to see the snow and how we're all rocking it in our different climates. Can't wait for you to be a part of the next one.

Super cute jumper dress. I kind of heart anything in the vein of an overall. And the Liza Minelli sparkle jacket is cool too!

I love your outfit - you look great. It's crazy to see snow on the ground though... we had temps in the 70s today and we normally should have snow, too.
