Vests are great item for anyone's wardrobe but I don't see many people wear them. I have quite a fondness for them as they can instantly add character to one's outfit. It is a great piece for men as well. J has several vests, sweater vests and dressier vests (and he's wearing one for the wedding!) and he looks fantastic in them.
I could easily pair the vest with a white dress shirt and gray slacks and I'd be ready for the office. I love versatile pieces that I can wear in totally different ways.
Vest: Triple 5 Soul

Just saw this picture of Rihanna. I like the casualness of the vest with the entire outfit.
That LV bag is to die for (the black one). I want. I don't know how many times I've looked at that bag at the LV boutique. I just don't think I'd be able to spend $4k on a bag. Even if I had the money. Seems a bit excessive. But hey, if someone wanted to GIVE that bag to me. I'd be all for it. ;)
