I’ve been eyeing a particular gilet for the last few days. When I read Angie’s blog post I realized that it would not be suitable for wearing over any of my existing dresses. It is in the style direction which I would like to be heading, but it is fancier than I typically dress now, and I am concerned about potentially shopping for a fantasy lifestyle. A more casual style of gilet seems like it would be more practical, but it doesn't appeal to my love of structure. The one I like has a belt and is almost like a sleeveless trenchcoat. Thoughts?
