Recessionista: Band Practice

A throwback to the Beatles' Sergeant Pepper look, this style of jacket is back in a huge way!

I found this version available for pre-order on designed by BB Dakota, one of our favorite designers. It comes in both black and white, and the look is favored by celebs like Beyonce and Rihanna, who have recently donned Balmain's version. Their choices are fierce and also priced at about $6,000-$11,000.

The style is so hot right now that I'm thinking of ordering one or two from But, be afraid when the almighty bustier makes a return. I for one will actually sit out on that one since I've already been there and done that. Just watch all the young'un's frantically lace up and try the old hook and eye!
