When you have your wardrobe ‘basics’, such as a black blazer and plain pencil skirts, you can create much more interesting outfits than if you buy a full suit….here is an example of pulling together a relaxed black cotton jacket with a straight white cotton skirt – the fun part was adding the print blouse (found at Portobello Road, GREAT shop in Chestnut Hill), the belt with the rhinestone buckle, and the silver necklace….it is creative and summery, yet still completely professional.
Where is the part about being ‘fanatic about fit’? Look at the photo above. The skirt is boxy and not as streamlined and flattering as most pencil skirts are now….it was either take it to my tailor or replace it….well, after searching high and low I found the perfect skirt at a reasonable price at JCrew, so I chose to replace it.
Do you have an item in your closet that something about the fit or shape isn’t quite right? Would be glad to hear about it and offer advice!
