Proenza Schouler's Spring '08 collection was inspirational to me because it took certain safari-esque pieces and glamorized them. I especially fell hard for the belted, long khaki vests (left). But being lovestruck doesn't usually equal cha-ching.
To see the look for less,
Sometimes Bebe's selections are so loud it hurts. Other times, like in the case of this Bebe Stretch Plaid Long Vest ($98), they are subtly stylish. I immediately had a vision of Proenza Schouler's runway show when I laid eyes on this vest. It's the most sophisticated and inexpensive way to dabble with the safari trend. Who's with me on this expedition?
