Is this not one of the most matronly looking suits you have ever seen?
When my husband walked in and saw this he thought it was a service uniform… Years ago I bought a beautiful Ralph Lauren black suit which I wore until it was thread bare. When it came time to replace it I could not find anything close to it in my price range. I didn’t have an office job anymore and couldn’t justify the splurge, so I bought this suit from Talbots.
That was four years ago and I have worn it once. I felt so old and ugly in it after I wore it that one day, that I put it in the back of my closet.
Well, here it is now……… I shortened the skirt three inches and cut away the flare on the sides. It’s not the Ralph Lauren suit I once had, but the new silhouette is far more flattering on me and I can wear the skirt with some of my favorite tops now. Believe it or not, I didn’t own a basic black wool skirt….
