Work or Twerk?

Standard

The way you dress yourself, is the way you want people to see you. It is the first impression that you make. You dress for the position in life that you want.

DONTS

There are too many people running around in attire that will NEVER be appropriate. I have seen some of the most horrific work outfits by men and women at my job and I work for a professional Pharmaceutical company.

For Women:

1. NEVER EVER EVER, no matter how old or thin you are, wear a skirt or dress that is shorter than lower to mid thigh. You are at work. No one wants to see your ass.

2. Foam Flip Flops. Just stop. They are an abhorrence to the human race and should ONLY be worn to the pool.

3. Polyester should NOT be in any woman’s vocabulary.

For Men:

1. Mandles, Flips flops and Sandles are unacceptable. Put on a leather shoe. TRUST me, it’s much nicer.

2. Belt and Shoes, Socks and Pants. A key rule to matching in men’s fashion.

3. Your clothes might have a lot of minor patterns, but all three or four, and you might look like a 1920’s hobo trying to get an interview with the Circus.

For Both:

1. RIPPED¬†JEANS, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! ‘NOUGH SAID

2. Stop dressing like you buy your clothes out of the kids section. It is so inappropriate and distracting. You will not get your point across, because if you can’t dress yourself appropriately, how can you make your voice heard appropriately.

3. Keep your colors and patterns to a non distracting level. As crazy as this sounds, some outfits you see from day to day are extremely distracting when a rainbow of colors just can’t seem to stop running by your cubicle. ūüėČ

DOS!!!

1. CLEAN LINES

2. Blazers and collared shirts are a must. MUST. They sculpt your body in the most serious of ways.

3. Everything should fit. Not too big or too small.

4. Appropriate touches of color and pattern can be very sophisticated and help spice up your outfit.

This light pink and black color blocked blazer, white collared chiffon shirt, black pencil skirt and black pumps are my go to outfit for interviews. Specifically for interviews, light jewelry and subtle colors really help to give off that clean and polished look, while really emphasizing that you are there for your skills and mind.

EXPRESS Addiction

Standard

My favorite store is¬†Express, it’s been my addiction since forever. My favorite things that are staples and around all seasons are the chiffon collared shirts and the best A-line and body tight dresses. They have the best lace and leather, and I cannot get enough. My recent purchases were pretty cheap and on sale and I even had a money off coupon that did very nicely, money off e-mails on your phone is one of the key things to use. Forget about most and delete them, but never your essential stores. It is such a money saver and half the time you can pay half the price if you shop properly. I think clothing is one of the most powerful ways you can express who you are and what you where shows what goals you have in life. Ultimately what you want and think you want to strive for. Clothing makes me powerful. It makes me feel like I am exactly who I say I am.

My Recent Purchases: They are more for me, dates and going out and less for work, the long dress I might wear on a Friday with a long black cardigan and sandals. Black was definitely my key color in this purchase, even though I love color.

I give full credit off these photos to Express Design Studios. You can find the link and these items below! Ironically, Express was a former employer of mine. Three months. It wasn’t as fun as I thought to have a second job just for fun but I did enjoy the clothes.

Hello!

Standard

I have always found that I am a very unique person that walks this planet. I have high expectations, am too smart for my own good, experiment with many mind altering things, have a CRAZY and BRILLIANT group of friends, and have a lot of interests that do not mesh at all with the way that I present myself.

My STYLE is a huge part of my life.¬†You will never see me in a pair of sweatpants unless I am coming from the gym. Which leads to the fact that I am obsessed with FITNESS, health and living well. my FITBIT is my one accessory I do not take off (except to change the band colors of course). I love learning. Math, science, physics, programming… I love trying to figure out the way the world works. I see nature in two different ways: the beauty and the mathematical model that can be defined that made that flower. I have a slight dark side to myself also. Vampires, bones, mythology, and the underworld are fascinating to me. I will talk a lot about books, quotes and authors, the creepiness and mystery of life.

I am a stoner. I tell this to most people and they laugh like I am joking. I LOVE smoking and getting high. It helps me to slow down and really take a second to appreciate the little things. I have had many mind altering experiences with various substances and going to festivals and removing myself from the general aspects of humanity is something I also love to do. My FRIENDS are the most important thing to me in my life. They are all beautiful and amazing. Loyal, brilliant, and crazy. LIKE BAT SHIT CRAZY. They understand me in ways I never will myself.

This blog is about my life, how to juggle stress, be successful, have too much fun and do it all with elegance along the way.
