Confession time: I did another order from Everything5Pounds. I have mixed feelings, and this is why. I has been trying to resist fast fashion. Having said that, some of the items from E5P are excellent quality. The other reason for internal disquiet is that the […]
Tag: corporate wear
I adore the crisp lines of a good suit. Executives, military, flight attendants; there are plenty of suited and booted looks that can draw you in. No doubt someone has done a study about why some work wear is just so appealing, but for me […]
Next are the outer layers. Not a deal in summer, but for most of the year I’m going to want to have another layer either on me or easily accessible. I have blazers, cardis, wraps, jackets, coats and jumpers. Okay, now this is getting difficult.
Looking in my wardrobe, I realised that I forgot that I had a suit. I’ll have to keep that, it’s my power outfit. I’m not going to count it in the tally since it’s not going to be in regular use. I feel like I’m cheating already. Oh well. Back to the outer layers.
Since I can’t decide where to start, I’ll start culling from each section:
Cardis: I have seven. I love cardis, they’re so portable and easy and they come in every colour. But I guess I don’t need seven. I’ll only keep four.
Blazers: Ignoring the one with the suit, I have 2 and one I never wear. That was easy.
Wraps: Should I count these as outer layers, or accessories? I guess they are layers. I can’t part with any of them, I’ll have to keep all three.
Jumpers: I didn’t wear either of them last winter. Out they go!
Coats: Workwear-wise, I have two. A light one and a heavy one. So I’m keeping both of those.
Okay, that’s a start! What do you think? How many work items do you have?
Job interview day. You want to look smart. It’s a conservative establishment so you want to look as though you will toe the line. But you don’t want to get lost in the crowd either. Or you might not actually own anything conservative! What do […]
It’s inspiring to see women unite over shared values and good attire. #PantsuitNation became a trend across the US in the run-up to the election, and for good reason: US politics is full of passionate people and Hillary’s pantsuits are pyjamas you can work to […]
