There comes a time in a fashionable woman's life when it is time to grow up. It's when the word "decorum" suddenly makes sense and rather than shiver and the thought of if, you surrender with a peaceful smile. A Chanel Haute Couture suit, especially one that is vintage from the time of Coco Chanel, is the epitome of "I am a woman" and maybe let's add "hear me roar." This perfect tailored red boucle suit with gold interwoven C buttons may at first seem "ladies who lunch" but picture the jacket with Balmain skinny jeans or the multi-seamed skirt with a sexy silk camisole and Louboutins. A skirt suit is a staple in a woman's wardrobe. When the Pope calls, this is what you wear. When you are invited to the White House for a luncheon, this is what you wear. When we elect the first female president and she accepts her party's nomination, this is what she will wear. And this day will come.
