Simple modern style: on the street in Paris

Incredibly this link comes to me from my husband who was watching NY Times cooking videos yesterday and said "You'd find this  interesting."

And yes I did, for its take on the continual dilemma for working women who want to look professional but not too dressed-for-work.  In other words look like themselves, and as competent women, look like they are wearing their clothes and not the other way round. A few silly things here, like the fringed belt, but all the white shirts and the significance of a good tailored coat useful.

Thought you might enjoy this.

Thanks for that link! Guess I'm not so far off, sewing yet another white shirt. (How many of those does one need in the closet?)
