Check out all the photos of this outfit here!
I had this idea that for my first real work day at my new office, I would be super serious and wear an outfit that just screams “look at me, I’m working in an OFFICE!”. Like something out of Mad Men – or, at least, Wall Street. Well… that didn’t happen. You see, when I started getting dressed yesterday, I came to the conclusion that I don’t even own any proper office clothing. Or, if I do, they’re still hidden away in the moving boxes I have yet to unpack. (Come on, I’ve only lived in this house for a year and a half… give a girl a break! I will get to it!) ;)
So, instead, I spent my first day at the new office dressed like I’d gotten lost while going to a music festival. Not that it mattered – I didn’t meet one single person in the building, so as far as anyone knows, I could have walked around looking like a Joan Holloway clone… Without the hair, the cigarettes and those incredibly sexy curves, that is. I did get the lipstick right, though! Come to think of it, she might not wear red lipstick that often. Well, she should. It would go perfectly with her look. Yeah, I think the Mad Men crew should absolutely use me as a beauty consult. Hello, Mad Men crew! I’m available! And I have so much great advice to contribute with – I’ll tell every single actress in the show she should use even more red lipstick. And maybe some for Don Draper as well. Mix it up a bit.
Okay, I’m rambling, I know. I tend to do that. But at least I’ve now convinced myself I should wear a Mad Men-inspired outfit tomorrow! Who cares if I don’t meet a living soul in the office building tomorrow either – at least I’ll be sitting at my desk knowing I look swell. (Why don’t people use the word swell more often? I’d say it’s a remarkable word. Absolutely swell, actually.)
