Dress like…Violet Newstead in Nine to Five

There was something about Violet Newstead's clothing that stayed with me decades after I saw Nine to Five. Lily Tomlin played one of those queens of the office, who is more comfortable there than anyone else, who knows everything and everyone, and without whom the place would fall apart. Every work place probably has a Violet Newstead.
I loved the way she put on her kimono to type. How great is that? And then she would take it off whenever she had to go to Mr Hart's office. I need a typing kimono. In fact, I would go so far as to say that everyone needs a typing kimono. And so I present my modern interpretation of Violet's classic work apparel:

Kimono, Love at Topshop
Blouse, Michael Michael Kors at Net-a-Porter
Necklace, House of Harlow at Shopbop
Piped Collette pencil skirt, Jaeger
And if you watch closely, you can see that Violet's heels have a toe cap, like these ones from J Crew
But I think these are great too, and have a nice 70s vibe - Diane Von Furstenberg at Farfetch
