This velvet tuxedo, a runway look from Dolce & Gabbana’s fall/winter 2011 collection, was my first option. It’s soo beautiful! It looks great, yes, however, I thought it was a little too warm here in New York to be wearing a velvet tuxedo. Also, the jacket was a wee bit on a small side — I’m wearing a runway sample. It’s sad that I could no longer fit most sample sizes because of my recent weight gain. I need to start eating healthily (in smaller servings and of course, in moderation) and get on with a new exercise program.

I hope someday I’ll have a closet filled with tuxedos and blazers and jackets! It’s never too late to start collecting them.
