    Dressing 9 to 5

    Whether you work in the city, a small office or from home, “looking the business” ensures you feel confident and ready to take on the day.

    Promote your 9 to 5 look and empower yourself with a bold red power suit, smart tailored dress, retro pinstripes or oversized blazer and add a crisp Oxford shirt or secretary blouse with a pencil skirt, wide pants or cigarette trousers. Let your wardrobe work for you, have fun and mix-it up—from conservative and classic, to edgy and sassy, or chic and cool.

    This week the Vintage Fashion Guild is dressing for success. So pour yourself a cup of coffee, add a dash of ambition—and be the boss of your own style!

    a 50s jacket with quality details that remind me of Lilli Ann or Handmacher. The wool fabric is so silky to touch that I believe it to be cashmere.

    This 40s suit jacket uses pinstripes to set off clean geometric detailing. And it's L/XL.

    This two piece 70s shirt-jac and wide-leg trousers can be worn together or as separates. New Old Stock from Bobbie Brooks!

    A 60s skirt suit in sunshine plaid boucle mohair. The jacket is double breasted.

  9. And, the Best Dressed Nine to Fiver will surely need some smart accessories for those sharp suits and jackets like this
    Pauline Trigere Silk Scarf Made in Switzerland Brown/Cream/Turquoise Stripes 1970s

    To adorn her lapel, how about this Sarah Coventry Bit O'Fancy Lady Bug Leaf Brooch/Pin 1966 Signed

    Or how about this Vintage 1960s Lang Sterling Silver Thistle Brooch/Pin Flower of Scotland Signed

    Of course she will need a pretty blouse to wear with all of these lovely suits. This one is a neutral color that will match so many colors so it's extremely practical!
