Washingtonian (Betsey Lowther): How does a woman start achieving a more fashionable life?
Simon Doonan (author of Eccentric Glamour: Creating an Insanely More Fabulous You): A piece of advice that I do give women recklessly, though I think there’s an underpinning of truth to it, is go home and sort your clothes into your “work clothes” and your “special party clothes” and then get rid of all the work clothes.
