Working 9 to 5...what a way to make a living....

Now ladies I understand that work wear can be a tricky terrain. Being a working girl myself (that is a girl that works in an office, not a girl that goes to work on the road at night-if you know what I mean), I have found myself in many a pickle in the morning having to make that terrible decision between not looking cute and not being employed due to lateness. BELIEVE me it’s a toughy! As such I thought I would share with you lovely guys and gals a typical working outfit. Admittedly I did have to struggle to shake off the Virgin Atlantic air hostess aura of the fire- engine red skirt which was a bargain that I found whilst perusing the wonderful streets of London’s fashion capital *ahem* Elephant and Castle! Nonetheless I think/hope I pulled it off with the muted accessories and ankle socks.

Following on from this I would like to share with you one of life’s biggest fashion problems.... when it comes to work wear...do you wear the outfit that makes Keith from Sales stare at you for FAR too long, or do you look like an old school female ‘bobby on the beat? An important consideration in this age old problem is of course the work shoe. Do you wear the gorgeous heels, the sensible yet trendy brogues, the ever practical ballet pump or the trainers(!?£@). Shocking though it may seem, I have seen many a London lady in these abhorrent creations. Why though? If you have broken your ankle then maybe, MAYBE a casual plimsoll. I don’t care where you are walking to, how long you have been at work for or whether or not you are jogging home...I’ve said it once and I will say it again....Primark sells disposable shoes for £4 so JUST BEHAVE. It’s not big and is not clever!

Please note*


  1. Love the shoes darling!

  2. I don't even know how to laugh more...

  3. OMG! This is soo cool! I had this same look a few weeks ago (minus the belt and the bag), with the accompanying thought of whether I looked like an air hostess. But then I rocked it (i think) with my Chanel (newlook copy) mary jane pumps!

  4. Ooooooh go you Neks2U, sounds to me like you did rock it! I decided a long time ago that half the fun of fashion is the faux pas...I almost delight at the cringe face I have to make when I see some of the clothes I wore even 2 years ago!! The air hostess dilemma is always a difficult one. All we need now is the REAL Chanel but alas.....a girl can only dream!
