wow, the things a suit can do from the overt f-me looks at Dolce & Gabbana (so miss the Sicilian widow thing) to staid and demure.

It's difficult to choose a favourite - they are all so very chic. Happy weekend!;-)

Wonderful all, and wearable too. Much love for the Akris, Blugirl (for the umpteenth time) and Richard Nicoll.

Bring on the Autumn already. Can I say that in June?

I do wear suits when we have important meetings at work, but i never like them too smart(i.e too corporate). However, i like the playfulness of Giambattista Valli & Mulberry.
