Fashion Inspiration: “She Works Hard for the Money…”

One thing I think about a lot is what I’d wear to work if I had a normal office job. Partly, this is because I consider dressing for work a real challenge. I personally need to look presentable in order to take myself seriously. I really believe that working in your pajamas, luxurious though it may seem, also diminishes the importance of what you do – and whatever you do, it’s important, even if you don’t always feel that way.

I often wonder what I would wear if I had to appear in court or a boardroom – I’d want to look sharp and crisp and tailored. So these are the pieces I gravitate towards when I buy outfits designed for daytime in Fall and Winter: tailored wool dresses, crisp jackets and blazers, high-waistedskirts and trousers, and silk pussybow blouses. These things mean business to me, but they still look incredible – and as with most higher-end (and some not-so-high-end) vintage, they look about 1000 times more classy than their modern-day counterparts.
