The Find: Well-Suited

The Look: A suit for (almost) all seasons
Label: Banana Republic
Location: Value Village, Adelphi MD
Likewise: This neutral suit can go almost anywhere together or as separates. A simple white or black tee will have you dressed for a long day in the office. Sensible flats are fine, but try a statement necklace to dress up the ensemble.

I snagged this suit on my most recent trip to the Village for $15 bucks—minus my 25-percent discount. I didn't even try it on. But my haste caused some extra spending. The pants were too short, but I know there was plenty of room to let out the hem. So I stopped by my local tailor and $12 later, I was good to go. I won't be wearing any four-inch heels with this suit, but I'm kitten-heel ready.

Extra hem length before the official mend
