I had several spinster great aunts, and it’s clear sometimes from the way I head out of the house in the morning that pictures of them greatly influence my sartorial choices. Ask my hubby, he’d tell you I’d make a great spinster aunt.

First, this sheath dress has a secret weapon: a built-in body shaper slip. Aaaah, you can let your muffin top ooze out of the top of the pan without anyone seeing.
Second, Aerosoles pumps are so well cushioned that I call them “sneakers with heels.” Paralegals need sneakers with heels. They’re not Jimmy Choos, but who the heck can run like a bat out of hell in Jimmy Choos? Only Carrie Bradshaw, and she’s not real.

Do you ever catch yourself channeling the style of your favorite older relatives?
