Who's Queenie

Some of you have asked about Queenie. She is in her mid 40's, married to a man who hasn't had a job in over 15 years. He usually brings her to work and then picks her up in the afternoon. She has a heart of gold. We call her Queenie because she thinks she is the "Queen Bee". She works for an executive. She doesn't open his mail, answer his phone or anything. When she doesn't have anything to do, she just sits there. Other secretaries have complained, but her boss defends her. She wears about a size 14 or 16, but if something runs a little small, she says that "it's suppose to fit that way". She doesn't know that sizes aren't uniform. Sometimes I think I am over critical because maybe something might not be my taste, but most of the bad things are inappropriate for work. I think she needs some guidance when she goes shopping. She wears a lot of camisole type tops. To me, only girls in their teens or early 20's can get away with those. Some of them are down right trashy looking. She's always saying that she is going to buy more professional clothes. I don't know what profession she is aiming for.

Thanks for the 'backstory' on Queenie. Maybe you and your co-workers should nominate her for What Not to Wear?

That helps to put thing in perspective. There just is not a nice way to help people who need fashion advice!
