Dress Week: A Suit for Work

Dec 4, 2019

Business suits comprised of a dress and jacket have never been my favorite.  But this one, with a modern cut and a sleek look, is something different.  So let’s have a look.

I looked at this Tahari Sheath Dress Suit for a long time trying to discern what I like about it.  But there’s just something different and unique about it.  And while a friend remarked on its “Star Trek meets Chairman Mao vibe,” (and I can’t deny that I see it too), I’m really taken by this look.

The other great thing is that the sheath dress underneath is a lovely basic.  It’s a scoop-neck sheath with a wide strap and a clean fit.  You could wear it with anything.

Love a skirt suit, but maybe not this one?  I dig the boardroom vibes of this Anne Klein suit with a collarless jacket.  Plus-size?  This Kasper suit appears to be a simple, well-tailored basic.

    If I didn’t have Christmas gifts to budget for, that suit would be mine. Very Claire Underwood, I think.

    For the sewists among us, I have https://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v9266 on my cutting table that this post is going to push me into actually working on.

    I’ve held off because it looks just a little too close to an inauguration outfit previously, does anyone else see it or is it just me?

    This reminds me of Melania Trump’s inauguration outfit, just a different shade of blue.

    I have been eyeing this suit since earlier this year. I love it! I am waiting to get a new job and then I am going to buy it.

The Find: A Miracle T-Shirt

Remember when clothes didn’t suck? The years were the late-90s and early-aughts. Jeans stretched a little, but were mostly cotton. Cashmere was soft and heavy and durable. Poly-blends were only sold at the giant teens stores on the lower level of the mall. And t-shirts were thick, not see-through, and wore like iron. Your first […]
