This blog is what happens when a sick day comes head to head with a flattering suggestion from a good friend. I recently provided real-time fashion support to Jessica while she was prepping for an important job interview. Our rapid-fire text exchange covered topics such as “when does a patterned tight make someone look mentally ill?” and “Actually, all blacks are not created equal, so buy your separates together.”
We don’t know yet if she has gotten the job, but we DO know that they are checking references, so the odds are in her favor (which is timely, given my excitement over the full-length trailer for The Hunger Games, which was released today)
She looked KILLER in her interview, and I can’t take any credit for her performance, but I know she felt like a Hot Corporate Lady (which is exactly the look we were going for) and that boost in confidence helped her to knock ’em dead.
What you wear is the first thing you tell someone about what you’re feeling that day. Today I’m wearing leggings and a t-shirt and a box of kleenex.
I assume that this blog will simply be a place for me and Jessica to talk about fashion. But I’m eager to talk to other folks like myself… who shop at the mall, on a budget, for clothes that they need to wear to work, on dates, or to Target. I would love to see pics of what you are wearing (which is why I love blogs like Preppy with a Twist)
Jessica’s idea, which I totally support, is that you send me a question, and I try to answer it. Bingo bango bongo.
Onward and upward! Let’s do this!
