At the end of my workday on Day 37 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project I received an email informing our team that a state Justice Cabinet Secretary will be visiting our agency tomorrow. This means while our dress code is business attire every day (not business casual), the expectation is formal business when we need to step it up. Thankfully this doesn’t create an issue for me as I’ve acquired a professional wardrobe with staple pieces like suits with both skirts and pants, tailored dresses, blazers and jackets. Coordinating blouses, tops, belts, scarves, shoes and handbags can be mixed and matched to create different looks for different occasions and to keep it fresh. The fact that most of my wardrobe is made by my favorite designer and purchased reasonably at TJMaxx and Marshall’s, makes being Pink Collar Savvy & Chic affordable.
Whatever your position or financial situation, it pays off to spend some time researching what looks good on you and which stores offer the brands you like (For me it’s more about the fit and assurance the pieces will go well together (Remember Garanimals?) than it is about the designer name. And of course your wardrobe needs to be reasonably priced – for you. That said, Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Soul Sisters are smart about our professional packaging and are willing to make the investment in a proffesional package that will work just as hard as we do.
