For a while now I have been wanting to target on “Dressing Well”. When I lived in Melbourne growing up I wore special dresses on a Sunday morning to church, and for years I wore only dresses on Sunday mornings, NEVER pants – that was Sunday nights. I used to love dressing up, and powdering my face. I didn’t wear makeup till I was about 16. I started with just eyeliner and lipgloss, but when I entered my early twenties I became obsessed with mascara, and eye-shadow, and contouring, etc.
When it comes to dressing, I have always liked lace kind of dresses – white lace or ivory laced dresses are my favourite because it is so effeminate, delicate and charming. I was a Cue enthusiast and people would brand me with that name! My first outfit I ever bought with my first pay in my first job was a CUE jacket and skirt, and I still have it after 10 plus years! I loved that outfit and wore it a lot.
I think if you have a corporate/administration job working in an office it is important to impress your bosses with the way you present yourself. I once put in a bit of effort and had a compliment from my boss! He said he was impressed! So, if you do work in an office environment it is imperative that you dress appropriately, and refine your look.
Currently, Cue has a “wear to work” section on their website, and I think it is the best brand out there if you want to have a Corporate look.
A Work Look
Check out this Black Lace Full Hem Dress for $409. It comes in size 6 to 14. It is made from corded lace, features cap sleeves, a boat neckline and a full tulle skirt. The belt that comes with it is also Rose Gold.
There is also the Textured Lace Funnel Neck Dress for $339 which is a Zip front dress, has a funnel neckline, and a slight A line hem.
Dressing well involves getting your hair done as well.
Looking Irresistible involves getting yourself together, and finding the perfect outfit and making yourself look right. If you haven’t seen my post on the brand Irresistible Me, check out the difference of me with my normal hair to wearing the new hair extensions!!! There is such a difference! Making sure you wash your hair at least twice a week, doing a hair treatment or mask once a week and doing a blow wave or straightening your hair is beneficial, and its imperative that you do it regularly if you want to keep yourself well-groomed.
