Two-piece suit  AINSLEY DREW  ·  MAR 30 2009

Unfortunately, I only had non-matching black business jackets. My second choice, a leather jacket, made the outfit look oddly slutty. So I went with my jean jacket, which gave the ensemble a wholesome all-American look, but didn't do much to make me look like a businesswoman.

Nomi Malone wouldn't have survived an instant in this economy.
