Wow, it has been over four months since I last did one of these. Time, as they say, flies. Some things never change though - my mirror is as grubby as ever. I have resigned myself to the fact that I don't have the energy or the interest required to keep it gleaming and finger print free. I am very busy and important and I have other vital matters to attend to like reading magazines and lolling around luxuriantly.
This post is a work-wear special. Imagine all of these with proper heels. Journalistic integrity might require the full outfit but my smart shoes live in a pile under my desk so it ain't happening. The new(ish) job has quite a strict, traditional office-y dress code. All very conservative - button down shirts, knee length skirts, suits etc. I like to push against this... Since I don't leave the office or meet clients I could happily work in my pyjamas but apparently it's not the done thing.
How do you jazz up your work wear? Also, where do you find attractive, affordable formal work clothes? I'm always in need of good recommendations because my personal taste skews drastically towards the casual (obviously).
