Blogger Caves During Assignment

Ann Taylor corporate was recently in town for a Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit and to celebrate with DC Magazine the opening of a new downtown store. Ask Miss A society blogger Andrea Rodgers was on hand to capture all the more pressing details including guest blogging for the Ann Taylor site. During assignment, she succumbed to an imported $139 chunk tweed jacket purchase (see picture of jacket, not Rodgers, at left). The jacket is 55 percent wool, 25 percent nylon and 20 percent polyester. Important detail: The jacket can be worn with a black dress, cropped pant or skinny jean. No criticism for the clothing or jewelry — all a deluge of praise.

She writes, “Attendees enjoyed hors d’ouevres and refreshments, and a special 20% discount, which I used on the purchase of a gorgeous new jacket. I am a big fan of vintage-inspired little lady suit chic. I adore this jacket. It can be worn with a little black dress or a pencil skirt, but is just as cute with a black cropped pant, or skinny jean. I am a big fan of statement necklaces, and love Ann Taylor’s new jewelry designs. I was thrilled that the event gift bag included one of the many beautiful bracelets in the Ann Taylor jewelry collection.”
