Having SERIOUS issues with the work folk and the heating temperature. It GRATES me (and some of my Twitter followers) just how cold it is in the office. I mean, how am I supposed to work efficiently AND look stylish, if all I can care about in the mornings is piling on adequate layers, and providing my bones with as much insulation with highstreet cotton as I can? *sigh*
Anywho, this post comes at a time when i feel like I have hit a brick wall. For any new graduate who's bagged a decent job and is in the same predicament as me, I'm calling on YOU fellow bloggers to lend a helping hand...

Mute what the fashion magazines and blogs deem 'appropriate' workwear cos it just aint true (apologies for that atrocious slaughter of the English language....aint? *bows head in shame*). Mini skirts, colour-blocking, Shorts, wedges....unless you are working in an actual FASHION house or its higshstreet equivalent, that ish is NOT for you hunny. The reality is, no matter what I wear, I feel too overdressed seated next to the drab middle aged lady who probably didn't even bother to shower before popping on her nearly talcumpowdered off-white belly suck-in briefs and age-old LBD... (thats actually not a personal reference *coughs*...just trying to paint a picture for you guys)
Moral of the story? I do NOT want to end up like that in a matter of weeks or a lifetime! I'm already (as you can see from the pics above) resulting to a tried-and-tested uniform of shirts, peglegs and flats....BORING! Anyone of you Bleurgher Boos got any ideas for how to spruce up workwear (and PLEASE, no dumb suggestions like try a lace shirt 6 inch heels....the key word is WORKwear)?
I see so many women fall into a routine, and very soon you'll see me with no makeup, rocking the same trousers in different colours daily. YUCK!

I think thats the issue with women. I have fallen victim to it, so I'm not preaching but speaking nothing but the truth when I testify to just how easy it is to get lazy with the looks & stick to routine. The appearance is first to be kicked to the curb, then its the lady-like mannerisms that are shot out of the window. Does that veil of ignorance EVER need to be slipped off like a bride at the alter? I'm not too sure. All I know is I am in dire need of a shot of spice on the rocks to break me from this funk captivity. HELP!
