Helpful tips and products

It can be difficult to express yourself by wearing the latest fashion in a professional atmosphere. So many beautiful blazers, blouses, skirts and trousers on the rack would look stunning as you enter the office, only to turn them over and find a sheer detail which wasn’t obvious from the front. Fashion icon Jean Paul Gaultier amazes viewers with every fashion show, but sadly most of his unique designs aren’t suitable for women who dress for the office.
I’ve been in dozens of malls and hundreds of stores, and at times I still struggle to reconcile fashion and occupation. Fortunately, there are hidden gems I see every now and then and some of them barely straddle the line of appropriateness.
