While I appreciate the softly flowing dress, I always feel weird wearing them. I tend more towards a structured garment that is fashionable, stylish, but also understated in a good way. Chalk it up to the part of my personality that makes me a banker. But on a trip back to London a few years ago I came across a store that fit the bill called REISS. I was able to justify the skirt purchase because it was part of my "travel budget". Apparently they are now also in the US in a few select cities. You can check out the Spring/Summer 2007 collection here.
(Pardon me, as I can’t seem to find any photos I can post.)
