i am loving the resurgence of ladylike clothing. the classic suit may be aging to some, but with the right coloring (color blocking -- SO spring), i say that the right blazer/trouser pairing should be the newest (and totally upgraded) uniform for us young working girls.

gone are the days we rely on leggings and an oversized tee to express our lack-of creativity for day wear. at this day and age, and with such graspable runway looks for off-the-runway-prices (a la Zara, et al), any career girl can channel her inner Coco Chanel or Kate Hepburn or Annie Hall. personally, when i throw on a blazer and sleek pants, i tend to stand taller and mind my overall look a little more than usual. poised and polished!

someone once told me, "DRESS FOR THE PART YOU WANT."
and my dear friend Edward Wulf always lived by the mantra:"GOOD CLOTHES OPEN ALL DOORS."

TRANSLATION: DRESS TO IMPRESS.

why?

because somebody is always watching.
