Reporting To Work

I got a new job as a secretary.  Oops! ... Executive assistant.  I hope my boss likes me!

What do you think of this outfit?  I really like it -- and the whole thing cost only $12, including shoes.  Everything came from a thrift-store (Savers).

  2. Fantastic high waist on the skirt it is very flattering, and the length is perfect. Blouse is subdued but professional. This is a win, any EA would be happy to look so good.

    1. Always! Because they are normally hidden, my toes are painted every day of my life. I try new colors every 2-3 weeks. I really like this orange.

    1. I love my pouf pen for both its color and its poufiness. (If that ain't a word, it should be.)

  7. A pencil skirt is such a wonderful classic yet super sexy look. Except the pencil...ha ha! That kinda kills the sexy vibe! ; )

  8. This is a perfect exec assistant look! I must admit, I don't dress like a typical admin even though I am one - but I'd totally rock this look. I think my favorite part is the blouse, the subtle design is really fun!

  10. ahhh! This is so cute and sleek! I love that the white top you picked has the little detailing on it! Perfection :) I wish that we had Savers by us, sadly, it seems every state has them BUT Michigan. Boo!

  13. I remember you talking about wanting to achieve this kind of look...you've done marvelously! the skirt fits you to a tee & the top is a perfect compliment! There is some debate however in the world of fashion as to whether or not stockings/pantyhose should ever be worn with open toed shoes, even if they are the sandal toe kind...something to keep in mind ;-)

    1. I'm aware of that debate and I know most gals choose to go without, but for me pantyhose have magical properties. I wear them because I love them. It's okay if others disagree.

      Thanks for the compliment. I appreciate it.

    2. I really like the outfit. It is one of my favorite looks...black pencil skirt with a white professional blouse. I think both are good finds, especially the blouse which does seem long enough for your arms.
      Being a CD I have a special affinity for pantyhose and love the look of painted toes through sheer toe hose. Years ago, before the pantyhose purge, all women wore pantyhose with sandals. Even today woman of our age, my wife and many of our friends, when the dress, they will wear pantyhose with sandals. One of my favorite looks are painted toe nails under shear toe pantyhose peeking out of a pair of peep toe pumps.

  18. It looks awesome and although you do look poised to be court stenographer, I think you could also be a lawyer. Probably even better than Ally McBeal!

  20. I'd hire you!!! Now shall we begin taking the minutes?
    The blouse detail is lovely and you have nice feet!!! Very, very feminine and eye-catching! X X

  21. OHHHH MYYYYY GODDDDDDD you look amazing. No seriously. The skirt is so flattering, the blouse has some great visual details, and the heels are basically perfect. Oh, and that toenail polish? Don't even get me started :)

  22. Love the outfit. Classic colours, sophisticated skirt. You look great.

  23. I have to say that you are getting really good at finding great items for good prices and composing some awesome outifts-

  24. I do have to say those shoes look comfortable. I used to wear heels daily and it did a number on my feet, so comfort when standing all day in professional attire is important.
    love the embroider accents on the blouse! very sophisticated!! You are looking great Ally
