It’s the end of the cotton candy heat wave fantasy summer time, which means that you need to get your exposed lumps, bumps, and frumps all covered up with hot fall duds! Whether it’s for sprucing up the workplace with your QT Pie look or to impress a certain someone, I’ve put together a few flashes of perspiration promoting inspiration. Looking super cool can be super tricky, but with these tips you’ll be catching flutters and stares for weeks to come.
Obviously we can’t all go on Italian shopping sprees, but no one has to know that, honey! Take an afternoon and hit the consignment shops where sequins, feathers, and leather are sure to be abundant. Anytime I want to buy clothes, I leave the girlfriends behind and go it alone. Then I perform a fashion show for the employees wherever I’m shopping so that I can get an honest opinion without all my friends ooh-ing and ahh-ing just to be nice!
I always strive to be ahead of the game as far as fashions go, but I always keep it professional. When I’m in the workplace you can be sure that I wear the clothes, they don’t wear me. I don’t have to play the coquette card like some of those other shrimp scampis running around the fax machine. Something typical of what I’d wear while earning my living looks like something Sue Ellen designed in ‘Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter’s Dead’.
Not bad, right?! Even more fabulous would be any piece from this fashion show. Big hats, pastels, and hot songs about South Africa put me in a ferociously flirty mood. Unimpressed? Just give any one of those looks a whirl and you’ll see- the proof is in the pudding, which will be flowing a plenty if you emulate any of these ensembles.
One word of advice, though…when trying to give yourself an edge, don’t go overboard! If you go too far with your new wave hairdos, unbuttoned cardigans, and face rouge, you’ll never find a good job.
I’ve been a career woman for lifetimes and I’m telling you, stick with big shoulders, Easter egg hues, and lots of perfume. If you can’t make it work with all that, you’re on your own.
