Butt-vest, Size S: Taken!

In a winter fashion rut? 

This magical article of clothing has the power to completely transform your closet. Made in the sweatshops of Shenzhen, it’s warm enough for a Winnipeg winter. With its soft fabrication, faux-lether panel, and gold zipper, it can make you look cute, juvenile, edgy, fierce, relaxed, sporty, sloppy, slouchy, or sk8ter gurl — take your pick! From a “little girl wearing pants under her skirt” to a seasoned professional of the night, ready to walk the streets (just add heels) — it’s your choice!  

So, whether you’re aiming for a look that is “unlike yourself” or utterly “you” — it’s all in the styling and your inherent qualities. In fact, this item magically transforms itself from “extra layer” to “micro mini skirt” depending on the person wearing it — completely irrespective of styling! 

It’s not just a piece of clothing — it’s a rock-solid, research-based INNER STYLE DETECTOR. 

The best part about this butt vest is that it is guaranteed to start a firestorm of discussion and debate on our favourite fashion forum! Wear it, and join your friends in a happy analysis of whether it works for you. Or not. 

Unworn, tags still on, only tried on. 
Originally $65 US (which means $80 CAN) — any price will be considered!

    Are you sure that your daughter doesn't secretly want this?

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Ha, Joy -- not my daughter. She's a tomboy through and through and won't wear ANY kind of skirt, let alone a butt-vest.  :) 

    But my stepdaughter might be interested. She is small, slim, and 20 years younger than me.  :)

  • Sveta replied 6 years ago

    Where is Lisap? She should see this and get her boxing gloves out! :-)
    Well Suz, this "item of clothing" may not work for you style wise but it sure did not go unnoticed in these inner circles! :-)

    Maybe you should tyr more wildcards just so we have some entertainment here! :-)

  • Dimity replied 6 years ago

    You're a darn good writer!

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Sveta, you are ON!  :) 

    LisaP is travelling today, I believe. I am sure she will check in at some point. And if not, maybe we can PM her. ;)

  • Gigi replied 6 years ago

    This is way too funny. I can only imagine what someone who is checking out the forum for her first time will think of seeing this thread on the style exchange!

  • Firecracker replied 6 years ago

    Your description makes it very tempting. But I'll pass. :)

  • replied 6 years ago


    Mind you... if I laughed it off I would have no need for something to keep it warm ;)

  • gryffin replied 6 years ago

    Snorted my latte, Suz!!  Do you have any idea how uncomfortable it is to snort a vanilla soy latte?!!!  Agree with Diane, ROFL!!  Gosh where is Anna when you need her, surely she would have something amazingly pithy to add!!  PS I was wearing my EF skirted leggings today, Uggs Cortonas and EF charcoal tweed long jacket!!  Good thing I enjoy living on the edge!!  ;-) !!

  • Windchime replied 6 years ago

    Too funny! I almost didn't look at this; very glad I did!

  • Style Fan replied 6 years ago

    I wish it was my size.  I could totally do all those looks.

  • Sharon replied 6 years ago

    You are hilarious!

  • dashielle (Ann) replied 6 years ago

    Who will be the next to join the ranks? I can't wait to see! ;-)

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    The decision has been made and the butt-vest is on its way to a happy new home (I hope). Stay tuned...

  • Mona replied 6 years ago

    This is too funny. Loll!

  • Runcarla replied 6 years ago

    Sisterhood of the travelling skirted leggings...?

  • Jjsloane replied 6 years ago

    Way to sell it Suz! Will you write my selling posts from now on? Very amusing. 

  • Elizabeth P replied 6 years ago

    You owe me a keyboard...

  • Suz replied 6 years ago

    Heheh....maybe I shouldn't have left that marketing job....

  • Sarah A replied 6 years ago

    HAHAHAHA! Just the laugh I needed tonight!

  • Janet replied 5 years ago

    I can't wait to see who the lucky recipient is! Welcome to the league of the Skirted Leggings of Controversy!

    Suz, I think the EF ones could work for you, if you ever want to pursue further.

  • deb replied 5 years ago
