Do you wish to be Correct? The Post has a piece on the love affair a certain cohort of Washington women have with Ann Taylor:

Ann Taylor is the capital of Appropriate Attire. It’s where aspiration meets motivation meets resignation, and that is why it is perfect for Washington. It represents the vision of what having a Big Job in Washington should look like — how it will involve breakfast meetings and shell tops, policy change and wide-leg trousers. Your life is about to catch fire, and when it does, you are going to be wearing a prim new pencil skirt.

Though I wish to hate on this, I cannot. My first year back in D.C. post-college was spent working downtown, about a block over from “Ann.” Now that I’m enjoying my career in a far less reputable field, may those shell tops never see the light of day again.
