     Prada's printed pantsuit (above) was one of my favorite for this season. I adore that it's a dandier, more tapered version of the 80's power suit, reframing our concept of modern feminity as one that is efficient, but not dismissive of the sensual curves that make us the fairer sex. That's why I was thrilled to score this United Colors of Benetton pantsuit, with its tight houndstooth pattern and leaner silhouette, that gives a nod to mod and the curvier masculinity that Prada ran with this season.

Here's how we stack up against Prada price-wise:

United Colors of Benetton Suit:                       $75
BCBGMaxazria Top:                                         $25
Coach Oxblood Patent Leather Loafers:        $40_
Total                                 $140

     That's right. You can get Prada's runway look for under $150 (which is about what you'd pay for a Prada key chain). And you're not compromising on quality by buying vintage: The Benetton pantsuit is made in Italy and is 100% wool. The Coach loafers are also made in Italy, they are leather, and they're that exquisitely covetable oxblood color that is so hot this season.

     Plus: Did you know that if you buy an entire outfit from my store (convo me on Etsy for a custom listing) you'll get a special discount on all the items, plus reduced shipping? Love this outfit? Buy the suit, top and loafers, and get the belt as my free gift to you. ;)
