WIW: Chairman of the Board

HI Fabbers,

Well I am not the Chairman, but I am on the Board of our local community radio station. We have had a day long meeting today and another to follow tomorrow with a consultant who is helping us work towards the next stage of development. I wanted to look professional, yet modern, and we were in air conditioning (another hot one).

You have seen all of these pieces before. I have worn these pants four times this week... they are super comfy and I really like the leg line. The white blouse is an inexpensive poly that I bought for wearing under jackets. And the sleeveless jacket is my Zara one which has proven to have been a great buy. #4 Shows the sheer side panel of the jacket. There is also a sheer panel across the lower back:)

Black nail polish has become my go to colour this summer. I am a little obsessed with it. It goes with everything:)

Im a bit disappointed that my hair looks so yellow in the pics. The lights in the room are very yellow and warm and reflecting... I still have a lot to learn about lighting my photos:)

Thanks for looking and comment and suggestions for improvements much appreciated.

xxx Deborah

    Deborah, wow. I love, love this look. Clean lines, interesting, original. Fabulous. Great shoes (I think the bright make this look very summery and fresh), but the ring and the nailpolish really nail it :-)

    I think you changed the hairstyle around the time I was off line during the holidays and I don't recall saying how much I adore it. It suits you perfectly.

  • Aquamarine replied 7 years ago

    This is fabulous! You look long, lean, and cool. I LOVE this vest...the perfect third piece for you!

  • Deborah replied 7 years ago

    Aquamarine, being referred to as looking long and lean is music to my ears, particularly given the reality is I am short and and quite rounded;)

  • replied 7 years ago

    You look great, Deborah!

  • shevia replied 7 years ago

    Gorgeous! Everything you have worn this summer has been fabulous!

  • dianne replied 7 years ago

    Aquamarine is right, this is a very flattering look- love it!!

  • Janet replied 7 years ago

    You are really hitting it out of the ballpark lately. I should take lessons on summer dressing from you!

  • JulieJohn replied 7 years ago

    Cool, modern, and sleek. You look gorgeous. The details that make the outfit are the little tuck on the blouse neckline and the peeps of your toes. (And I suspect the sheer panel on the vest although I can't see it on my monitor.) Note to self: small details pack a punch on a simple canvas.

  • Sara L. replied 7 years ago

    You look great!  I love seeing how your style works in the summer.  I like to paint my nails a dark maroon color that almost looks black (like a glass of Merlot).  Somehow I think it edges up plain outfits even though most people probably don't notice.

  • shemarie replied 7 years ago

    You definitely look chic, tall, and effortlessly elegant! I adore everything about this and like Janet, I am studying your amazing warm weather style! I'm starting to realize that without layers, etc., all of the details, as JJ so wisely noted, really, really matter...and your white watch, stunning haircut and awesome shoes just elevate your already-fabulous look! Soooooooo well done!

  • rachylou replied 7 years ago

    Slick. I wouldn't add or subtract a thing.

  • Sarah A replied 7 years ago

    Simple, bold and strong. LOVE! The white watch is a very nice touch :)

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    This is one of my favourite looks on you EVER. And that is saying a lot. 

    I would wear this in a heartbeat. In fact, I can't wait to wear some version of it later this year. Thanks for the inspiration. 

  • Angie replied 7 years ago

    Killer to the power of Killer. 

    Simple, Modern, Trendy, Hard Edge and Chic

    Personally, I love it when you add white to your all black outfits, Debs. They look much softer, fresher, flattering, alive and youthful to my eye. 

  • catgirl replied 7 years ago

    What Angie said. Love your style so much, Deborah.

  • Debra replied 7 years ago

    Perfect :) you look fantastic, very chic and modern. I love the simplicity here and black and white.....my favorite. :)

  • merwoman replied 7 years ago

    FANTASTIC! You own this look!

  • Caro in Oz replied 7 years ago

    What Angie said too. Fab outfit.

  • Deborah replied 7 years ago

    Thanks Fab ladies! This outfit definitely rates high on my happiness scale. I'm sure some of you might feel the same but when you give me the thumbs up on an outfit I can add it to regular rotation with absolute confidence xxx

  • fuzzylogic replied 7 years ago

    Another super chic look, Deborah! I completely covet that statement ring!

    Do you dabble in polish? Have you tried other deep, dark colours like plum/purple and wine/burgundy? These may work with your style, and are some of my particular favourites........ ;-)

  • Karie replied 7 years ago

    This outfit is very flattering and chic. And that ring is gorgeous!

  • Lyn D. replied 7 years ago

    You are looking fantastic Deborah!
    I have just reached the end of my tolerance level for hot-hot weather, and have worn all my coolest pieces to the point of boredom  :(

  • Beth Ann replied 7 years ago

    Love this type of layering for summer!  Sounds like your having a very busy summer.  How fortunate that your wardrobe is so streamlined!  It's working hard for you.

  • Marley replied 7 years ago

    You are drop dead gorgeous!  This is my all-time favorite outfit that I've ever seen you in.  Jaw-dropping!  I remember that vest at Zara - and I was tempted to buy it so many times but never ended up getting it.  (Now, I'm kicking myself.)  Love this Deborah!

  • carolbee replied 7 years ago

    Deborah, you look smashing. This is simple and elegant, one of my favourites.

  • Lantana replied 7 years ago

    You are amazing, Deborah.
    This is perfection on every level.

  • Joy replied 7 years ago

    Deborah, you are stunning! I want a white top in that shape for summer and the sleeveless jacket is a gem too.

  • Lantana replied 7 years ago

    Now I have gone back to read the others' comments and see we are in unison, not to mention a KtoK from Angie.

  • Astrid replied 7 years ago

    What Angie said. You look awesome!

  • gryffin replied 7 years ago

    Deborah - you just look uber elegant!!  Powerful, confident, chic, edgy.  love the sleeveless jacket and the outside column of color as above a very long and lean look.  The peeptoe booties fab.  Minimalist fabness at it's finest!!
