Sartorial Saturday–The Dress Suit

One of the things Miss Candyfloss does really well is vintage-style suits. Skirt suits, pantsuits, and my favorite, the dress suit. I waited a long time to find one that I thought would be perfect for me, and when I saw the Cherly-Regina dress and matching Loula-Lee jacket, I knew it was the one!

Based on the size chart, I needed to order the jacket in a size smaller than I normally do, which made me nervous, but I’m glad I trusted it, because the fit is perfect!

Up close, the stripes on the jacket are orange (although from a distance, they could easily pass for red), so I accessorized with a blue and orange Splendette Duchess Bangles stack and a blue Meteor Jewelry necklace. I love the adorable detail on the pockets of the jacket!

There was a possibility I was going to have to serve jury duty this week (luckily for me, they told me they didn’t need me!), and I was going to wear this outfit, because I think it’s the perfect blend of retro and still “courtroom appropriate!”

Here’s a look at just the dress, which has a lovely scalloped neckline, and detailing at the waist that matches the jacket:

I continue to be impressed with the quality and fit of each Miss Candyfloss piece I buy…I’m glad I ventured out of my comfort zone to do a bit more shopping with them!
