dap·per /ˈdapər/ – adjective (typically of a man) neat and trim in dress, appearance, or bearing.

How can I describe it?

I saw her walking down the street and found myself frozen by her dapper grace…

Unconventional? You betcha. But nobody had any question in their mind as to whether or not she was sophisticated. No sirree. To see this graceful woman elevating a sense of style which we consider timeless, and yet we have abandoned – Well letʼs just say,

Iʼm glad I saw it.

I could literally feel her reveling in the simple, do-no-wrong joy of a well-fitted suit – and I mightʼve envied the way it flowed effortlessly over her long gait.

Visions of Lennox, Bowie, and Deitrich danced through my head while I stared on like a chump. And just as soon as she had appeared, she was gone.

I picked my jaw up off the floor, remembered to exhale, and went back to the job.

Yeesh.
