Oftentimes, clothes look awful on the hanger. Then you try them on and they look awful on you. This time it worked:  Once I figured out how to play up the skirt's   cheeky humor with pinstriped stockings and kooky oxfords, it all came together.  Humor is the underpinning to great style.

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.
