As I keep on purchasing pieces that will help me to transition into the fall season ... I continue to be inspired by the looks found on the Fall 2008 runways. After seeing Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2008 show, I fell in love with the blazer - vest combination that reminded me of traditional men's tuxedos. Although very hesitant to tryout the duo myself ... I went ahead and did. I decided on pairing the vest with my current obsession( trousers) and a structured velvet blazer such as those seen on the runways of Emporio and Giorgio Armani as well as Zac Posen.
