A few weeks later, at a women's retreat at church, we had a clothing swap. Rosalyn brought a beautiful tweed suit, a remarkable tweed that could read as brown or black. She told me it was her first suit, bought with her first paycheck, at her first professional job at a bank. I'm so pleased to have a suit with such a heritage.
I chopped the skirt to knee length. I've gotten the idea, recently, that the cut of the blazer is not flattering on me, that maybe it needs to be updated or freshened somehow. I'd like your suggestions, please, on how you think I should wear it. Is it too formal to wear it as a suit? Should I belt the blazer?
