It's Business Time

Dressing for a meeting in downtown yesterday morning, I don't know what came over me.  For some reason, I remembered that deep in my storage closet I had folded up a pair of Victoria's Secret high-waisted, wide leg slacks...Folded them up for good.  But all of a sudden I just had to wear them.
Now, usually I would opt for a cropped blazer but not with these high-in-the-sky waist pants.  No ma'am.  To counter the "highness" and give some balance, a longer blazer did the trick.  With a long blazer, the waist isn't suuuch a focal point.  Because it doesn't need to be.  You know, like, I was being subtle and stuff.
Feeling conservative and elegant when I slid those babies up up up, I decided these pants from the past would be best paired with my favorite comfy heels!  The elegant drape of these pants mixed with the wooden heel on these Jill Sanders is Phoebe Philo perfection.  Do you think she'd agree?  I can only dream...
 You've seen this shirt and this bag before.  Reduce, reuse, right?  They go with everything and that's what my Tiny Closet and I are all about.  I wore this drapey top not too long ago here.  This bag that I also found in storage has started becoming my best friend.  I wore it here.  And this blazer, I wore previously here to a meeting of the legal kind...
blazer: BCBGMAXAZRIA / top: James Perse / pants: Victoria's Secret / earrings: handmade / bag: Dooney & Bourke / heels: Jill Sanders

As  I traipsed down 1st avenue feelin' like a boss lady, I was giddy with excitement.  It was business time.  

But more on that later ;-)

  4. Man! Fantastic. That's my look 24/7 (if I have your figure and skin that is). Beautiful skin, great smile, sexy simple top and Katharine Hepburn pants! Tell me what could be wrong with this look. NOTHING! You wear it well my friend. The hair, the earrings, the lips, the camel color in the bag. Bravo!
