Cath in Kahki, White and Black
Whenever we're shopping, Cath always laments that she is drawn to slightly more conservative clothes because that's what she has to wear to work. Sure she would like to buy the liquid leggings, but they look loud and inappropriate under office fluorescents and out of place around a conference table. My job is a little more arty, so I can wear gold lame if I want to. But the upside for those in more conservative office settings is that Cath looks tres chic and I can look...well...experimental.
Cath has always been a little bit more conscious of fit and cut than I have, and I think this outfit is a perfect example. She reminds me of a cross between dapper Katherine Hepburn and elegant Audrey: menswear with a feminine cut and stilettos.
