How to dress like a Young Urban Professional Woman?

I look younger than my age (25) and I've found the best way to combat that is to 'dress up'. I want to know where to get good quality, reasonably priced professional clothing.

I want to build a wardrobe of classic, quality pieces that I can use for years. Some things I already have are white button-down shirts and black wool slacks, but I'd like to expand beyond that. Adding some personality with accessories would be great too.
As I said above, people often mistake me for a 16 year old, even though I'm 25. I don't want to dress older than my age, but I do want to look my age.
The only place I know of to get somewhat reasonably priced "suiting" is jcrew.
I'm looking for style tips, favorite brands or stores, what pieces you can't live without, etc.
If this helps: I'm of average height/weight but small-boned and curvy. I find that a lot of professional clothing with a tailored look doesn't fit me well.
