Wondering about World Trade

Amidst all the Coronavirus concerns, and the current stock market drop one can’t help but wonder, what will the impact to world trade be? Where do we go from here when whole portions of the world are cordoned off?

While it’s easy to let our fears grow out of proportion and allow the news cycle to perpetuate a sense of anxiety and worry, it’s best to remember that we’ve always rebuilt, and come back even stronger. There’s no place that is a greater reminder of our will than at the 9/11 memorial.  What occurred there almost 19 years ago is unspeakably horrific, but the strength the memorial represents of the ability to keep going is powerful, and something to never forget.

Whether you’re headed to a somber event or occasion, donning all black is a conservative choice. For this formal suit I paired an all-black pant suit with a black silk sheath blouse.  I found the suit this winter at NameDroppers and couldn’t believe how well it fit. Having a classic black pant suit is a wardrobe staple I’ve wanted for a long time. My blouse has been in my wardrobe for several years, I originally bought it in cream, and years later when I found it in black I knew it would be equally valuable in my closet.

Let your wardrobe work for you, no matter where in the world you wander. And don’t worry – it’s a waste of your energy, instead wield that energy into solutions.

All my best,
