Harriet is my friend.  She’s also my employee.  She’s also Alex’s employee and friend.  And she now assists Jane, while trying to befriend her, while trying not to neglect Alex or I. Whew! I never realized how many roles Harriet plays, and now that I do, I marvel at how she handles it all.  If clothes gives you confidence then there must be a secret in Harriet’s wardrobe that helps her be both flawlessly professional, and girl-next-door sweet.  Maybe it’s the standard white, silky, sleeveless blouse but with a surprising pop of bright yellow in the nostalgic tie collar.  Or the simplicity of a stretchy, fitted, navy blue pencil skirt with a whimsical scalloped hem.  Perhaps the clue is in her accessories?  Like these adorably magical, coral lace-up heels.  Or the way she brings it all together with this fun, fabric, navy and white striped bag with structured, vegan leather, brown trim.  Maybe, or maybe all these choices are just a side effect of being Harriet, and no one else could ever do what she does.
