The Careerist’s Checklist
The work week is is winding down, but I have a checklist that will have you looking forward to the busy weeks ahead. If you’ve been in the business for years or if you’re just starting out, this checklist ensures that your workplace style is the envy of the office. Begin with the foundation of the careerist’s wardrobe: the classically sexy black pump. Layer in some seriously playful accessories, like a power-inducing oversized watch and smart, yet alluring black glasses. Finish by keeping your must-haves well in hand with a luxe leather brief case and sleek black iPad case.
