The silhouette of this suit immediately brought to mind the style of the TV show "Mad Men." (I don't actually watch the show; I tried watching the first season - and, although I enjoyed the style of the show, I found the subject matter a tad depressing.) Anywhoo (as my father-in-law would say), when I came across this suit at the fabulous Scholar Shop in St Louis, it caused my heart to beat faster. When I saw who made it AND that it was my size AND that it fit like a dream - well, THAT was a pretty good day!
This is a super transitional suit - great for fall and spring. The sleeve length lends itself to this time of year, the two piece structure works great for the season, and for cool mornings I throw on the chocolate brown leather trench I've had for years. AND you'll note that the nude patent leather Kate Spade pumps work like a dream with this outfit!
I had an event that called for a business suit, so this fit my needs perfectly.

I know this photo doesn't show details of the suit, but it does show the bag, the shoes and the coat!
These photos are driving me crazy - I think it may be time for a new camera...
