Click photo to enlargeHere is a suit that can span the seasons just by changing the accessories. For Spring/Summer: Shades of lilac complement Integrity's Town and Country taupe suit. Floral tilt hat, lucite purse, and reversible gloves are from The Couture Touch, shoes from Joe Tai, bracelet from Facets by Marcia. Gilty Girl Gene Marshall from Integrity is my model/muse.
