Up to now, I've experimented with party-clothes, casualwear and fun stuff. I haven't explored work-clothes -- the type of garments a woman wears to the office. I decided to change that.
My strongest urge is to have female experiences. Of every kind. Even the dull and boring ones. So I try to imagine what I'd wear to the office if I could dress as I wish. A pencil-skirt would be nice. And a crisp white blouse. And, of course, a business-appropriate jacket.
So that's what I wore. What do you think?
I can hardly wait to see your Powerpoint presentation! You are destined for the corner office. :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks! Let's do lunch. I'll have my girl call your girl.Delete
You look classic. Very professional. I really like this look on you. 😃ReplyDelete
Very professional. I also like this look on you. But may I suggest a pretty pin? It would draw attention to your face, maybe not, since you have great legs!ReplyDelete
That's a great idea. I'll look for one.Delete
You found a wonderful corporate look that is perfectly tailored to show off your great figure. Beautiful, classy, business conservative without being uptight. Nice going on finding this suit!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Lisa! I'm proud of it.Delete
Very smart ... I agree with Tesla about the pin ... there is too much seriousness for the Ally I know in this outfit ... so something a bit fun and colorful would break the "corporateness" of the suit.ReplyDelete
Now a little peplum jacket would also look sharp on you with that pencil skirt and killer legs!
I agree about the pin. And I love peplum!ReplyDelete
I agree a vintage brooch would make this more Ally. : ) Either that or a small scarf around the neck. I like that idea too. Otherwise you look like you'd fit right in at the firm.ReplyDelete
If I were the corporate type, this is SO what I'd be wearing! Yup, a pin would be perfect. There are some stunning artist-made ones out there if you want to add a bit of contemporary, edgy look.ReplyDelete
I LOVE IT. I bet your court sessions wouldn't even notice. You look amazing!ReplyDelete
Although hilariously, my office attire is much more centered around jeans and plaid shirts than pencil skirts. Our head-of even said a dress is all well and good, but you keep a pair of jeans and steel toe boots in case you need to see a client!!
I've never really ever worn anything like this for work- I totally dislike power-dressing, especially pencil skirts as they are so un-me and I've always worn a more hippy-vibe for work! (Luckily, I've only really worked in Higher Education and Primary Education where I didn't have to be corporate) But I am glad you are having fun exploring your approach to the varied female clothing areas and a pencil skirt looks good on you! Oh and I am totally agreeing with the pin!ReplyDelete
How about you do a hippy/boho/festival look? Would you do it for me Ally?!x
I'd love to buddy! Great idea. That's a fun style.Delete
Sorry, just reread my comment and ahrgh, it sounds a bit negative- I didn't mean it to sound like that- it's just I am not good at the power look, but it suits you!xReplyDelete
No problem. I understood your point. I didn't choose this to wear in real-life but simply as a fashion-experiment. For real-life, I'd "Ally" it up with quirky accessories.Delete
You look amazing!! But, this is bringing back bad memories of my office days. I hated dressing conservative/professional :(ReplyDelete
Understood. Sorry to provoke the flashback.Delete
Wow, wow, wow! Ally, you really look fantastic! This is definitely one of my favourite looks you've ever sported. Corporate or more formal ladies fashions do not have to be dull at all though. Try wearing a glittery rhinestone brooch, a triple strand of pearls, vibrant single or double (colour blocked) heels, a handbag in a sumptuous texture like (faux or real) alligator, snake skin or lizard; or a vivid red lip (keep the rest of your makeup understated though). There's still lots of ways to play around and look ready to get your Mary Tyler Moore on! :DReplyDelete
Great suggestions. I created a base-platform which can be enhanced with your smart ideas.Delete
Corporate Ally is very corporate you look great and your legs are amazing. I just miss seeing colour on you because when I think of you I think of bright colours and fun.ReplyDelete
You look fantastic, Ally. You remind me of a stewardess. Gorgeous killer legs!ReplyDelete
Looking great, professional and sexy :) perfect for office life ! Hugs and thank you for saying nice thing about me to Santa Claus, LOLReplyDelete
Fashion and Cookies
This is SO how I imagine Ally the LawyerReplyDelete
You look stunning! The pencil skirt really suits you - with your slim hips, it creates the curves for you. Awesome outfit!ReplyDelete
You are rockin' that pencil skirt! I love mine, but haven't worn it in a long time. That suit really plays up your shape and great legs!ReplyDelete
I need to fly back to NY and do something illegal so this competent lady can defend me.ReplyDelete
I love this look! It's so natural...maybe because you have to dress up for work every day, so you're already comfortable in otherwise-confining dress clothes? Whatever the reason, you look great!ReplyDelete
Wow, this is a marvellous look… you look like a bank manager, very corporate and beautiful. I want to see more of corporate Ally.ReplyDelete
This outfit is marvelous! You look like you're ready to go straight to the courtroom and kick some ass!ReplyDelete
There are so many feminine ways to dress up corporate wear, whether it's a great high waisted trouser and blouse, a pantsuit, or a dress. It's nice to see you having so much fun with it-- most women take it for granted!
You need pearl necklace and earrings to cap off this particular archetype. So far, so good!ReplyDelete
perfect! would hire you!ReplyDelete
Haha, love it! So good to see what you would look like in an every day job situation.ReplyDelete
Btw, I received your holiday card, thanks! Also, a couple of weeks back I received a super destroyed card repackaged by USPS... turns out it was the halloween card you sent. It was super cute, sad that it was mangled by the postal service.
I do love this power look! I always admire the women from legal and marketing, since they usually dress like this!ReplyDelete
Looking great! :)
You look amziiiiin!!! :)))) Really! So classy and strong!ReplyDelete
