Suede Fringed Bib thing.

A find worth mentioning...
I found this little slice of heaven at a great vintage boutique called Hunt&Gather. This piece screamed BULKY PURPLE OVER TOP on the hanger but after I put it on it totally changed its tune. I loved that it was a no-fuss bib, you just throw it over your shoulder and velcro the the ends together. The overall lay of the fringe and the suede was awesome. No bulk whatsoever, and it actually gave my shoulders a nice silhouette. Surprisingly, it looks good over almost anything. On New Years I wore it over a black stretchy dress and totally had a Daniel Boone moment...BB gun included.

Moral: don't judge a bib by its hanger appeal or lack there of...try the darn thing on! I'm sure there are more of these waiting to be found at your local thrift or vintage store...maybe even on ebay?
