Dressed for Success??

I hate to make fun of one of my coworkers, but she dresses inappropriately most of the time. If her attire is presentable it usually doesn't match. Today she had a full skirt that is brown with an aqua and beige circle pattern on it and it was hiked up in the back. With it she had on a white tee with a tight aqua (not the same color aqua) sheer blouse with big ruffles down the front. She had on brown tights and black shoes. Neither the blouse nor the tee were tucked in. The tee was about 2-3 inches longer than the blouse. What really set the outfit off was a belt out of the skirt fabric that was double wrapped then tied in a bow worn over the blouse. What was so bad was today was board day, and at lunch she took a guest to eat in the executive dining room. This woman is the secretary to a market president. Sometimes she wears tank tops with nothing over them. And, she is a full figured woman. Bless her heart, she really tries. She buys her clothes from major department stores, she just doesn't know how to pick out things for work. She has two satin camisoles that she wears a lot. They look like trashy lingerie. Even if you have to buy your clothes at Walmart, you can still look polished.

Williamsburg Marketplace is having a 25% off jewelry sale. Use E81014C in the promotional code box upon checkout. They always have beautiful classic jewelry.

That outfit has me laughing out loud! Poor thing! Not sure how you tell a person they have bad taste though....

I have worked with others that dress in a like style. I just let them think they knew how to dress because I didn't know how to tell them.

I think that MUCH of the working world dresses like that and honestly has no clue. I had an old boss that would wear straw hats to the office in January. Completely inappropriate, not to mention tacky. It looked more appropriate for a beach party than an office. I don't think you really can say much. . .
