I also want to mention that I do not work directly with the public - all my interaction at work is either with my co-workers (in person) or my clients (phone and written correspondence), so I can push the envelope a bit. I would not dress as "over the top" as I do in a job where I might deal directly with the public, like a bank or a law firm. Ya gotta know your audience. I also want to give a shout-out to my girl, Bianca, who so kindly pointed out in the comments of the above-linked post, "my girl Sheila above indicated that she wears SS often, however, I read her blog daily and would never consider her outfits inappropriate for work or fetishizing in any way at all. " What a sweetheart! Thank you.
Anyway, food for thought. I am always careful not to be too tight or revealing, but I personally think it's okay to express yourself through your clothes, and dammit, I am a sexy woman!
The outfit today features my new aqua sweater worn under my plaid bustier, and a nice (not tight) pencil skirt. The sweater was $5 in my favourite store that I missed so much last year, Dots - they sell off manufacturer's samples cheapy-cheapy.
I wore brown fishnets instead of black (I find black is too harsh against my skin), and check out my new shoes: Drool! They are Guess, and were about $40 - they are another of the 5 pairs I got just after Christmas with gift money. The insides of them are red - how awesome is that?
I also love that they are real patent leather (not plastic) and that the heel is not too high (about 2.5 "). They were super comfy.
A close-up of my new jewelry:
It's by Foxy Originals (the "o" in Foxy is a star), a Canadian company out of Toronto. They were 50% off (about $16 for the necklace and $13 for the earrings, I think). The necklace is from the "Enchanted Forest " collection and is called the Arbor Necklace. I don't see the earrings on their website, so they must be older. They are clock hands, see?
The sweater is actually made from recycled plastic bottles! It is very thin but warm.
I actually bought one in a nice grape green, but when I went to pack it this morning, I discovered I'd grabbed an XL by mistake. Whoops!
