Why, yes, this IS a Reader Request — I happily take them! — inspired by Duchess Kate’s recent Fancy Lady Duchess Blouse. (Just so you know: Heather and I call basically any woman of a professional bent A Fancy Lady X, inspired by a TERRIBLE CBS drama that was on for like two weeks several years ago wherein a female lawyer from New Jersey got a job at a New York firm, and in the ads, a sarcastic family member snidely referred to her as “a fancy lady lawyer.” The phrasing works for anything! You can be a Fancy Lady Doctor or a Fancy Lady Librarian or a Fancy Lady Stay at Home Mom or a Fancy Lady Short Order Cook! If you’re not a Lady, you can be a Fancy Gentleman Dog Walker, or a Fancy Electrician. The point is the FANCINESS.) I wrote a piece a while about about my Beloved Silk Button Down Shirts, and this feels like a cousin of that. GET SOME FANCY BUSINESS BLOUSES. (For what it’s worth, my Fancy Lady Blogger Uniform generally involves this button-down, or this one. I REALLY want one from Sezane, but I’m trying to be strong.)

FYI: GFY uses affiliate links where available, which means we get a tiny bonus if you get yourself something new. I can assure you that all Fancy Lady Anythings were personally chosen by me while I sat around drinking gin & tonics and watching Vanderpump Rules.
