The CorpGoth Suit, Sort Of
I wore this as psychological armor because I had a meeting today where I had to talk about uncomfortable things. Wearing serious clothes, even better, an outfit that is serious but also expresses my creativity & personal style, helped mentally gird my loins a little bit. The meeting went OK, not perfect, but I presented my case without reservation, & I made headway on some important issues. If I'd looked like a slacker, I might have felt like a slacker.
What I'm wearing:
Black twill jacket with piping detail, Spiegel
Black knit top, Target
Black twill skirt with lace, stripes, & velvet trim added by me, Gap, thrifted (details here)
Black tights, Calvin Klein
Black round-toe, spool-heel pumps, Target
Silver large-bead choker, Target
Gunmetal & rhinestone hoop earrings, NY & Company
Grey chiffon flower pin in hair, Icing
Grey bead & ribbon bracelet, NY & Company
Celtic ring, gift from Lisa
Are there certain clothes or types of outfits that make you feel strong & like you can take on stressful situations?
