I’ve never had a job where I had to wear a suit, and I’m totally okay with that. The thought of being limited to wearing almost strictly polyester daily does not appeal to me. But because I have the luxury of wearing sweats to work, the weekend is a time where I’m fine with mixing in a little bit of poly (I also can’t complain about how well it washes, and how it never wrinkles… such a dream).
I scooped this suit up at my local thrift shop. It was $14.99 for both the blazer and pants and I eyeballed the sizing (too lazy to un-bundle to try it on). I like wearing them as separates, but together as a full suit I think they make a real statement - the kind of statement that says ‘The 80’s are back and women are stronger than ever and this is my power suit’.
