Ain't A Common Office Gal

A common office gal doesn't strike numerous poses every morning in front of her desk, hahaha!
Anyway, I don't mind if people think I'm weird. Afterall, why settle for the mediocrity of mundane daily life, if you can just whip it up a bit into an extraordinary one?

Anyway, I have secured and moved all my accessories boxes, though I haven't organize my clothes yet (they're still in boxes), so what I do everyday is basically just put on any decent clothes I could manage to find, then spice them up with some accessories. I hope the trick works!

I have a collague who once said to me: "Women only keeps stylish and groom themselves when they're single. I bet that once you catch yourself a boyfriend, you will start slobbing." Well, first of all, I don't think I "catch" a man. I don't think women are supposed to "catch" men, because it sounds like a pushover phrase to me. Also, not only I want to prove that it's not true for girls with boyfriends, I'd like to show that even a married woman doesn't have to look sloppy! Maintaining our God-given body is for everyone, whether you're single or married, rich or poor, male or female, young or old! Even if one is not into fashion, one must take a bath everyday and keep ourselves clean, and that's maintaining our bodies, rite? What do you think, Friends?



I thought people here are used to my antics of taking pictures every morning. Well, not really! Male colleagues still tease and make silly poses while I'm taking pictures! Haha!

Batik shirt: Barata. Skirt: Japanese vintage, Mom's. Shoes: Yongki Komaladi. Purse: unbranded, from Egypt. Necklace: online. Jacket: tailor made. Earrings: Accesorize, Singapore.

I don't think your colleague is right, because I find myself dressing up more after getting married. It takes a LOT of keeping up to keep the husband happy. Even after baby.

Super cute skirt, by the way.

I hope you prove that fellow wrong...and this outfit is a great way to show him otherwise. I love the print on the blouse and am amazed that you snap your photos in the workplace. My colleagues would tease me endlessly if I did that.

I can't believe you snap your photos at work either...you are confident and I wish I had that confidence. I felt silly doing my photos out in my backyard yesterday. But I agree with your sentiments about how everyone should take care of her/his body no matter what. And your outfits are super cute!

I totally agree about staying well-groomed, just for ourselves. And of course women don't "catch" men! Anyway : > your lemon yellow skirt is so lovely and so are you. have a great day.

Very pretty necklace and very pretty outfit. You always look so crisp and pretty. I think one should still dress nice even if you have been married a long time. I dress nicely for myself, first and foremost. I want to feel good about me and the rest is a bonus.

Georgie said...

I absolutely agree with you... "catch" a man is a weird phrase... and I hope to be stylish even when I am a grandmother :)

You are clever with accessorizing - I am just getting the hang of it. Sometimes I forget. I don't know, I did let it slide after my two kids came but since my move here to the USA I have been galvanized into making an effort once again. The weather is a big help because I am not sweating buckets like I was in Singapore.

This is a great skirt and you've styled it really well into different looks! And I love the statement necklace in the second look.

I think it's unprofessional to take outfit photos at work.
