Inspirations: In this dress, the world is at your well-shod feet Simplicity 2296, Copyright 1957

You thumb through your closet. What to wear to work today? What? You're not in the mood for a power suit. You want something that whispers power, gently, softly. You want something that looks smart, that will look at home in a chic cafe. Something that will be comfortable for Christmas shopping. Oh, this. Yes. Simplicity 2296. You stitched it up a mere two weeks ago in that luscious red wool crepe you bought on sale this spring. Already, you've worn it twice. But why not? It has that Maggie Prescott flair, but it's as easy as an old pair of Tod's. Yes. This is the one. Absolutely.
