I knew I’d love the Novah Vest when I ordered it, but didn’t realize how much until the third day of wearing it. It’s hard not to pull it from my closet every day. My gray vest goes with everything (ahem, all my Steel Pony Elly tunics), and the design makes it malleable into different looks. At first I didn’t know what to do with the long “tails” of ribbon, but making them into several knots makes a bohemian statement, and also keeps the cats from pulling on them. If there was an international design award for best vest of 2020, I’d nominate Steel Pony’s Novah Vest.
