The Power Suit

Once upon a time, I went to university for business and as I neared graduation, I pictured myself finding a job in a big city, probably in the financial district at some entry level job, until I worked my way up to a position with an impressive title. Years later, I felt like a little bit of a fraud while shooting this look downtown in the financial district. I still don’t know what I want to do when I grow up, and the only reason I wear suits like this is because I love wearing things that make me feel badass, and there’s something about a well fitted pant suit on a woman that is particularly badass.

I’ve been wanting a pant suit for quite awhile but without getting one specifically tailored to my size, I had been yet to come across anything that would fit my height, length, and shape. Without even having to ask, Adelle, a designer from Trinidad, seemed to read my mind and answer my suit prayers! This suit by Dellez Fashion is absolutely stunning. The gentle detailing of the satin lapel is just enough to elevate the jacket from just a simple navy suit, and both pieces fit me like a dream!

I love this suit so much, the next on my list is going to be a floral pant suit. I fell in love with them at fashion week two seasons ago, and now I’m as determined as ever to find one in my size!
