There’s some great news here at AGD.  Thanks to a referral, I have recently signed a new client.

I won’t be posting any photos of her as she’s not on Twitter and doesn’t have a blog.

My client’s main goals are to update her work wardrobe and to buy several pieces for upcoming events. The challenge will be to find clothes that are stylish, yet appropriate for a conservative work environment.

I believe American women in their 50’s, and up, can look current without trying to dress as if they are still in their 20’s. The other extreme isn’t great either.

We will be focusing on stylish classics that can go from work to dinner.   My client looks great in black, white, and red.  She also wants to add more color to her wardrobe.

The DVF dress below would be perfect for my client.  She’s petite with a runner’s frame.  A change of accessories could easily take this dress from the workplace to drinks and/or dinner.

I’ve pulled other images for inspiration.  That board is HERE.

I was invited to the Rome store opening, co-hosted by Monocle magazine, of this Milan based company.   I went with my partner in fashion and art crime, Erica. We had an excellent time (and some prosecco).

This men’s store is fantastic.  I wanted to check out Officina Slowear before bringing my client, Coach G.  I thought he would like it.  He did and we found some great pieces.  Over the weekend I saw him wearing the polo shirt he bought and he was rocking it.  Riccardo, the store manager, was super helpful and even gave Coach G a book as a gift.

Officina Slowear is preppy chic meets Italian style and tailoring. The clothes are cut slim and made with high quality materials.  Price wise, they’re mid-range, more expensive than J. Crew but less expensive than a store like Kiton.

Slowear has a few international stores… London, Seoul, and Paris.  I think they’re opening a store soon in Mexico City and you can find some of their clothes at Barneys in the United States.

The store also carries interesting books and accessories. If you’re looking for causal clothes with style, this is the place.
