FEMME FATALE Black Leather Convertible Vest AND Handbag by Jungle Tribe
A women's black leather vest harness thing that can also be used as a purse?
"Why would anyone want that?" criticized my brother.
My response was, "Why not ? ". Sometimes why is not important ... and sometimes it is.
Here is my story of why:
Sometimes I have an idea that doesn't work out. And then it sits on my workshop table, along with a pile of other experiments. And then finally one day comes along when I look at the graveyard of half finished projects and somehow I get inspired to make something work. And then I become obsessed with it, because generally I like completing tasks. The hard part in life is to know when it is time to put an idea to rest, and when its best to pull the pin. This item is a perfect example of that.
I wanted to make a vest that actually could carry a bunch of stuff in it when you are on the move. Like when you are out and all of a sudden your friend wants to give you that jacket that they borrowed the night before, but you don't want to carry it. Ah ha. You can just stuff it in your vest and wear it. But even better, when unexpectedly you have to carry around a whole bunch of stuff that you unexpectedly bought, you can attach the long strap and wear it as a purse. Tada!
Now who is laughing.
