I'm in love with Isaac Mizrahi. I want a tulip skirt so bad. I will date myself here but I went thru the era of the Alli McBeal miniskirt suit. I owned 5 of them. Ah those were the days....when a high heel was a mere 3 inches. LOL!

Raquel said...

La Couturier said...

Happy Easter, darling CC!

I must say I adore the pre-fall look for Burberry!

Bisous,
La C.

Anika said...

CC, my dear, I loved this post!
As a corporate woman (sometimes by force ;), I love to have inspiration for dressing up for that occasion rather than just for fun. Or inspiration for dressing up in a suit for more fun times???

The Rachel Roy pre-fall caught my eye. What a delight! Will need to experiment with a grey marle suit and lots of ruching/folding/tucking ;)

Hope you're having a fantastic weekend.

Sasi said...

I love The Gucci, Rachel Roy, Isaac Mizrahi and Balenciaga ones.

Amelia said...

I love the silhouette of the Alexander Wang look, but I'm not sure suits are the thing for me. Maybe when I'm older...

Eeli said...

This is why i CANNOT wait to be a corporate woman lol. I'm just itching to wear suits. Infact I wear them whenever we have class presentations haha.


Androgyny at one of its best!

Suits you! You just can't beat a classic cut, can you? x

Little Bow Prep said...

I'm rather partial to the Isaac Mizrahi and the Luella ones :)

ZombieLace said...

I knew pants suits would come back, I just knew it!! I am fawning over the ankle looks like that Narciso Rodriguez(?) sleeveless blazer with pants and then the buttonless Christie fit!!! Electric blue never makes anything boring either.
