I like le smoking because that was the moment when Yves empowered women. - Pierre Berge
I wore my new Theory suit on Monday - my first day of work and perhaps it was the excitement of new beginnings or the little sleep I got on Sunday night but I felt like queen of the world. Like I could conquer anything I put my mind to. Then again, perhaps it was the 4 inch Stuart Weitzman heels and the fact that they put me at eye level with most of the men in the room.
Or maybe it was the power of the suit. The power suit.
The thing about a tuxedo is that it is virile and feminine at the same time... It really does make you feel different as a woman, it changes the gestures.

The inception of the power suit. And here it is today, with a dash of increased femininity.
