The Beatles song, “Something” is what this garment sprang from… as in the first line: something in the way she moves… This is for an unimposing, confident woman, one who is comfortable in her skin… like the lyrics describe. This is for the advanced (or adventurous) beginner, who likes rich layers, classic, but trendy clothing, and appreciates function in a dynamically mixed closet.
