Business Casual Superstar #492: A Bright, Bold Skirt!

Like many of you, I’m sure, I’m quite a fan of ModCloth. Their items can be rather pricey for my budget (in real life and the $100 budget I limit myself to for these posts) so it’s not that often that I buy something from there. However, I do keep an eye on the sale […]

Business Casual Superstar #491: One Day Deal: Madison Paige Sheath Dress!

As most of you know, I’ve been on hiatus since late 2011 because of the Bar exam. I’ll be taking it for the first time in February, and I’m terrified. But that’s neither here nor there. I’ve put the blog mostly on hold, but I’ll be back after the Barzam (early March-ish?) with hopefully a […]

Business Casual Superstar #490: OMGah: “Wrap Up With A Good Book” Scarf!

Yes, I am expanding the category of “OMGah That Dress” to include things that are not dresses, per se, and are actually available for purchase. Allow me to offer up a scarf that any fan of classic, nineteenth century British literature is SURE to love: the “wrap up with a good book scarf!” It’s probably […]

Business Casual Superstar #489: Hermes Limited Edition Sarees … Yeah, No.

Observe, mortals. These are the new limited edition sarees from Hermes. :| Yeah, no. These are not sarees. These are abominations. (And yes, this is filed under OMGah That Dress in a very bad sense of OMGah.)

Business Casual Superstar #488: A Totally Romantic Skirt

Generally, I am of the opinion that when it comes to what you wear to work, “romantic” should not be one of the words used to describe your outfit. “Pretty,” yes. “Delicate,” sure. “Feminine,” no reason why not. But “romantic?” Yeah, um, no. However, I totally have to make an exception for the gorgeous skirt […]

Business Casual Superstar #487: A Classic Sweaterdress Outfit Inspired By Emma Stone

Sweaterdresses are awesome. They make for a great, simple, comfortable look that is absolutely perfect for this time of year. Plus, a sweaterdress with a nice bag and nice shoes and not much else makes a great statement. That’s what I had in mind for today’s look, which is inspired by Emma Stone. And here […]

OMGah That Dress: Everything about this McQueen is unbelievable

You guys, I can’t even. Just … just see for yourself. I ADORE the color combination: the dusky, rosy pink oatmeal? The deep, rich crimson? YES PLEASE. I love the built-in shrug. Delicate and pretty and demure. The printed border is reminiscent of Indian saris, and so intricate and pretty, while the overall look of […]

Business Casual Superstar #486: Punjammies! Help Indian women rescued from forced prostitution!

Now, okay, I confess, this isn’t actually a business-casual find. In fact, you can’t even wear this on Casual Friday. You can basically only wear this in your bedroom, or around the house, or to your high school on “Pajama Day” during Homecoming week. (God, I loved Homecoming week.) That’s because Punjammies are pajamas. Jammies. […]

Business Casual Superstar #485: She Sells Sea Shells By the Sea Shore

Man, is anyone else exhausted by this Black Friday/Cyber Monday mess? I sat both of them out. Frankly, I find BF/CM intimidating. I find most things intimidating, really, but that’s my cross to bear. I don’t want you guys to worry about it. And if I find you worrying… >:( Anyway, I was browsing the […]
