State of the Fashion Union

Manolo says, the Fashion Tribes they have another of the State of the Fashion Union round ups over at their most entertaining blog.

One of the favorites from this round up, it is the Fashion Divas exhortation to Look Like the Grown Up!

Probably one of the worst ideas to ever evolve in the workplace was “casual Friday,” which has insidiously snaked itself into “casual everyday,” and it does not improve the work or the image of working women. There was a time, before all this “revolution” in the workplace, when everyone who worked dressed up. Once upon a time, when being a secretary was considered respectable, secretaries dressed smartly and had an air of importance (remember Della Street?). Then somewhere along the line, the position morphed into “just a secretary” and now some ladies feel that wearing “just about anything” is acceptable. A lot of “dressing for the workplace” articles focus on the “professional woman.” Divas, if you are gainfully employed in a company, you are a professional. Dress like one.

The Manolo he could not have said it better himself.
