Corporate Culture

Monday, August 13, 2012 142 0

Dress: BCBG. Belt: BCBG. Handbag: Gucci. Shoes: Boutique 9. Necklace: Stella & Dot. Watch: Michael Kors. Bracelets: Forever 21, J.Crew, BCBG. Rings: Kate Spade, Ardene.

 

Last week, the head honcho of our company visited our field office (where I’m located at work). ย It’s an unwritten rule to dress your corporate best when the big wigs show up. ย I’m not a matching 2 piece suit girl, so this is my version of ย formal corporate attire. . .traditional black and white, with pops of pink and gold.

      Ha ha, I’m sort of surprised people have noticed the missing sunglasses! Thank you so very much Katie!

    Jenny you’re from Toronto, right? What’s the fashion like over there?

      Hi Cat, yes, I live in downtown Toronto, but I work in a suburb of the City, so I don’t get to see the daily outfits of fashionable Torontonians. Overall, I think people dress a little more conservative here, I would say similar to New York. Definitely not as laid back as the West Coast. If you go to a downtown restaurant or shopping area, you can definitely tell that people make an effort in the way they dress.

    Loving your take on corporate dressing, Jenny ! You can never go wrong with B&W but that pop of pink and your gold accessories just made the outfit very ‘corporate chic’! Just rocking another great outfit, girl!

    I can relate to that unwritten rule. ๐Ÿ™‚ The gold belt and hot pink shoes lifted the outfit from regular, love it.

    I really like you’re version of the corporate look better. It’s much more standout than a suit. Besides this combination is a classic but the pink pumps really turn it up a notch!
