Jane must have gotten some inspiration from Harriet and her many theme printed dresses. But, like decorating her office, she found a way to make it completely her own. For example, Jane is highly educated and knows something about pretty much everything. She is also more than meets the eye because once you get to know her you realize how much you don’t know. Which is why this particular dress is so perfect for her. At first glance this dark blue wonder with a sweeping full skirt and cinched waist seems to be decorated with stars and constellations, making one think of the mysteries of the universe and our fates being written in the stars. But upon closer inspection it’s actually depicting a series of colorful, perching owls who are often used as symbols for wisdom and knowledge. Worn with basic, neutral heels that make sure nothing distracts your focus and this dress manages to say so much, and imply even more.
Sometimes being successful in business calls for subtlety. A casual lunch can be the perfect time to pitch a new idea, and a cocktail party is an opportunity to network with executives you would never meet otherwise. So when it comes to helping someone without letting them know you’re doing it, make sure your ensemble is simple and approachable. I try to limit myself to one bold piece, like this lively peach and navy blouse. Then, to tone it down, I match it with a soft white envelope skirt, pale pink leather flats with a delicate ankle strap, and a mint green, briefcase inspired handbag. This look is refreshingly relaxed and looks can be deceiving!
P.S. The only sign of what I’m really thinking is my ring. It’s shaped like a tiger which is my way of saying that I may look sweet, but inside I’m always fierce. Especially when it comes to getting the job done.
