After reading Angie's suggestions to Tanya about what to wear to her conference, I have a question. What is sophistication and how do you get it? Are there some people who just can't pull it off? I'm at loose ends as to what to do to appear polished, sophisticated and still look friendly and approachable.

When I hear the word, I think of a thin woman dressed expensively in a neutral color (probably black) with hair and makeup done, but I know that isn't the whole picture. I have no role models in this area. What is your idea of sophistication and what do you do to achieve it?
