I was recently asked via Formspring about my work attire, and more specifically, if I dress more conservatively for work. The short answer is: I do. In my own way, of course. The person who asked the question followed up with an email to me, in which she wrote:
I’ve always worked in the cultural sector so most of my 20s was spent sitting at my desk in jean and converse. Now I’m 31, so so old, I’m struggling to find a ‘uniform’ for work is appropriate but still reflects my personality. I don’t know what the grown up me is supposed to wear.
Would love to see some posts on work wear.
And I think that is a spectacular idea, because when I’m not in full-on glam mode, at least three days a week, I’m in my work attire. In fact, in several of my Friend Friday vlogs, I’m wearing ensembles that I wore to the office earlier in the day (I often come home and shoot video immediately after work, before I change into my play clothes). You can’t see a head-to-toe shot, but you can get a taste for other outfits I’ve worn to work in my Conspicuous Consumption, Sizing Up Size in Fashion, and Privacy in the Blogosphere videos.
