From the front, this looks like just your average sleeveless safari vest, but turn around and lo and behold.....the peekaboo spine!
I think I was drawn to this vest because it reminds me of the clothes made by Dion Lee, who is one of my favourite designers, but whom I simply cannot afford. His clothes have these interesting, anatomical-looking details that remind me of a map of the nervous system, or perhaps a dermatome chart.

My vest was £20 on sale at River Island. It says it is a size UK 10 which would make it a US 6, and it fits me (I'm a 10), so clearly it is meant to be oversized, but it was the only one in the shop, and beggars can't be choosers.
This is actually quite a versatile layering piece, and I look forward to being able to wear it most of the year.
