I have six identical white cotton shirts, one for every day of the week. I own two v-neck sweaters, one in gray and one in black. Both are identical. I have two black vests. Identical. When I see something I love and it’s a perfect fit, I buy it in multiples.

This is the first time I've worn a cardigan as a shirt.  I think it works because it's fitted.

Tick Tock. The days are flying by and soon I'll have a birthday that ends in a zero. Do I care? I'll just wear a white shirt because white shirts are my Fountain of Youth.

Either very fitted (sexy) or over-sized (as if you raided a man's closet). Today, I pretended I had a dapper dresser of a man's closet to raid.

Mother always said "you'll wear it on Saturday night" thinking I had this fabulous lifestyle.  Since Saturday night is a pair of jeans and a white shirt, my "Saturday night" is any day of the week when I'm in the mood for fabulous.

I read the STYLE section of The New York Times but it doesn't have much influence.  I love black and white.

Too many carbs last night.  That called for a monochromatic look (and control-top stockings).

An over-sized pair of cropped pants (I'm talking humongous) and a shirt with cuffs that hit my knuckles are comical.  That probably explains why I find tight clothes too grim.
