Personal closet consultations are fun and rewarding in and of themselves, of course, but they also afford me the opportunity to trot out some of my fancier duds. I wore this to meet with a new client as we pored over her wardrobe and hatched plans to revitalize it.

The top was one of my purchases from our recent visit with Audi in San Francisco. It’s by an independent designer and is such a fun garment. The vertical striped piece on the side is actually a flap or sorts – kind of an attached scarf – and I’m excited to try tying and draping it in other ways!
