I kind of like this.
After all my suit talk, I decided to wear one of my old ones to a semi-serious event I had last night. It has a corset-style jacket and a pencil skirt that is so tight I was scandalized that I ever wore it to work. I felt good until the post-event photo shoot.
I clearly need a new photographer. My husband seems to have a special talent for cutting off the top of my head while including random wall vents. And after seeing the photo, I felt a lot dowdier than I did during the evening. I think I’ll take up the skirt very slightly and then wear the pieces separately. When you can see all the details, the jacket is quite spectacular. I swear!
UPDATED TO ADD: I knew that the Biba outfit spoke to me for a reason. Check out the matching dress/leggings outfit in ’80s singer Stacey Q’s Two of Hearts video (it first appears about 50 seconds in). Awesome sunglasses and earrings too.
