What I will be wearing..

Twice a year my colleagues and I dust off our most fashion forward black shoes and pull out every piece of black clothing we own.  Why you ask?  It is Fashion Week!  In my world, it is a whirlwind of invitation stuffing, organizing seating, printing seat cards and re-aligning seating charts!  While we do all the heavy lifting in the office, we then need to put it into action the day of the show wearing all black.  After 20 plus years (am I dating myself?) of wearing "Professional Dressy Black" at every Fashion Week, I have a few tricks up my sleeve:

I try to only buy and/or wear black dresses that have pockets so I can stash my iPhone, lipstick, MetroCard, and cash. If not, it goes in my bra!

I never know if I will need to wear a headset, so I always have a black belt at the ready to clip the handset to so that I am hands free.

I wear ballet flats right up until show time and then I change into my heels.

I keep this Evercare extra sticky lint roller in my drawer at the office, it works wonders on all the lint!

I think I am ready...but let me know if you have any other "tricks" I should know about...

Pin It!

  4. Not sure I would have any room in my bra for anything else ... As far as the lint rollers... have them everywhere, gym bag, car... no not my bra! Have a fun week and we'll miss you at Brimfield!
