>>Armani Privé<<

As I get older I find myself avoiding the party scene, I opt for a quiet dinner or quick coffee with friends. There is the occasional gallery opening, or a friend's birthday party but even those, the crowd I run with, tend to dress pretty casual. Sometimes on date night with my husband (yes we have Friday date nights) I get dressed up but that's really it. I don't believe in saving that special something in your closet for a big occasions but I can't really wear it walking my dogs!

With that being said my kind of dressing up isn't party dresses, its more like Armani Privé fall 08 collection. Perfectly tailored pantsuits and tuxes. I never feel comfortable in a dress unless its long for some reason, just not natural for me. I finally have a perfect pair of slacks (that I did not even have to tailor..this is huge for me) and now I'm on the lookout for that interesting perfectly tailored jacket to go with it. I'm not even sure where to start looking...any ideas?

i either feel at ease in something tailored or in an LBD (which for me stands for Long Black Dress).

BCBG always does good jackets, i bought a gorgeous Max Azria Collection/BCBG tuxedo off of ebay last yr and i love it.

also Theory too. what i like about theory is that i dont have to get their jackets tailored. so rare when a jacket fits me straight off the rack.
