A Piece Apart

I love these librarian, school-marm looks from A Piece Apart. They remind me of an upscale version of what the nuns who taught me wore (minus the habit). I have a distinct memory of a gang of us hovering outside a hairdressers one day to see Sister Annunciata get her hair done so we could see her without her habit. A few years later, the habits were completely gone. But the starched navy looks and ribbon-tie blouses were permanent. They must have imprinted themselves on my brain because I'm absolutely smitten with this neutral, uniformy collection.
