Your mission, should you choose to accept it: get dressed without causing maximum damage to your closet, your wallet, or your rep.
A tall order, indeed.
Unless you’re armed with Mischen, a collection of sharp suiting, silky silhouettes, and chunky knits in unexpected colors, patterns, and textures — making them your secret weapon.
Pencil skirts with a rock edge are ideal for day-to-day operations, as are smart crepe de chine blouses. You’ll look like you stepped out of a film noir shadow in the double-breasted wool coat; the red georgette and lace dress, accented by an oversize rose, will surely lure your target to your trap.
And any agent worth her decoder ring can appreciate the houndstooth cigarette pants that have zippers on the pockets.
It may take courage to pull off such bold looks.
But it’s no Mischen impossible.
