Most of my wardrobe consists of work clothes. I am a lawyer and often in court, so there are a lot of suits and a lot of black. No pattern other than pinstripe. I am trying to expand my wardrobe for 2010 to reflect more of who I am and not what I am (as a professional). I just purchased this number from Boden. I have never purchased anything from their site before, but free shipping and free returns is a great way to make me a fan.
