You look fabulous in this, your husband was right. Color, shape, sizing all fits you to a T - lovely job.

Wowzer! June Cleaver would be VERY jealous! The shoes are killer too. Such an understated, feminine style. It is perfect for you in shape and color.

This is beautiful. My mother had one quite like this in a grey wool. Bought it at the Bon Marche in Saint Louis. It didn't have a ribbon - just plain and so so elegant. If one has the figure for these styles, one should definitely make them and wear them! :))) You surely do!
