But it’s certainly not for the birds! *wink*

Nifty Two-Piece Herringbone Suit

Nifty Two-Piece Herringbone Suit

This is a Tippy Hedren set. Part dippy sexpot, part smart sophistication with elegant details and a no-nonsense suiting fabric. Tightly-shaped top. Pencil skirt. Flirty wiggle-waggle of coins at the hips.

Textile is a bird’s-eye plaid — black, bone, and primary-red. Blouson tailoring details include a high neck, elbow-length dolman sleeves with gusseting, deep dart-shaping and the bust, and a skinny, cinched-in waistband. Bodice buttons closed at the back. The skirt has a nipped-in waist and slender shape — it’s lined at the back.
