Despite her usual modesty, Harriet has an inner starlet that longs for the bright lights of the stage. And while most of us, like Harriet, are satisfied sitting in the audience, once and a while your inner diva wants to make her presence known.  Start with color, a sure fire way to draw eyes and admiration even in the work place.  This woven magenta blazer maintains it’s professionalism but demands attention the minute you walk into a room.  Keep it casual and fun with a denim button up underneath and no one will ever mistake you for uptight.  Then show off those showgirl legs in a short skirt, but with a twist.  The layers on this black mini fold over like the petals of a flower and hide the fact that they are actually a pair of shorts!  So feel free to move around, even dance in your office, without any inconvenience.  Last but not least, a big, bright metallic bag tucked under one arm is like a personal marquee putting you in the spotlight.  No matter how unassuming and humble your nature, don’t shy away from showing off.  Whether it’s a potential job opportunity or a possible date, you never know who might be looking.

 

Wild West

Sometimes you have to go with your instincts, make your own rules, and stand up to anyone who doesn’t agree.  A lone cowgirl who is ready for battle and for hard work.  That doesn’t have to mean saddle pants, fringe, or cowboy boots.  It’s not Halloween.  You can still capture the feel of the wild west and keep it professional and feminine.  Start with this adorable Southwest inspired boho blazer in ivory, with just a hint of black tribal embroidery down the sleeves.  Dress it up by avoiding jeans, and embrace your female power with these light and airy pleated blush slacks.  Balance out the light with the dark by adding a bold, deep blue, button up crepe blouse which brings out the embroidered sleeves and really makes them pop.  Light colored heels and a pale pink wallet clutch will subtly blend in, while the bag’s gold studs emphasizes the general theme.  Lastly, wear with an arrow around your neck to remind yourself to aim true when going after what you want.
