Not A Business Casual Superstar: But Srsly OMGAH That Dress

You’ve probably figured out by now that this is not a Business Casual Superstar post. There is no way you could wear this dress on its own and be considered a business casual superstar. I’m not sure that even a blazer, my favorite stand-by as far as chameleon-ing up my casual fashion to business casual […]

Business Casual Superstar #484: Earrings, Earrings, Earrings!

Whenever I wear my hair either fully up or half-up, I always grab a pair of earrings. If I know I’m headed to a rather formal setting (more emphasis on business rather than casual) I’ll go with something small and short, something that barely hangs a half inch off my earlobe. If I’m headed to […]

Business Casual Superstar #483: Halloween Costume: Luigi (Super Mario Brothers)

Yep. Today, I’m comin’ atcha with a Luigi costume. For girls! (I’ll get to the boys’ version tomorrow, hopefully.) Trust me when I say that this is awesome, you guys. I was in my brother’s room, poking around, as is my way (I was actually looking for the iHome that he borrowed from me), and […]

Business Casual Superstar #482: Halloween Costume: Martha Jones (Frema Agyeman, Doctor Who)

My brother and I argued about this one, you guys. He originally suggested a Patrick Jane (“The Mentalist”) costume, but that turned out to be wildly expensive, and I couldn’t make it work. When I announced that I was doing a Martha Jones costume instead, he argued that a Martha Jones costume wasn’t distinctive enough […]

Always check your sources, you guys, especially when it comes to the endless studies splashed across blogs, magazines, newspapers, and mentioned on the evening news. Check who sponsored the study, and then you’ll have the whole picture and can decide if you buy it or if you need a grain of salt … or a […]

Business Casual Superstar #481: Halloween Costume: Meg Griffin (Mila Kunis, Family Guy)

Yesterday, I did Lois Griffin, the matriarch of the Griffin clan on “Family Guy.” Today, I’m back with her daughter, Meg, voiced by Mila Kunis, who I absolutely adore. (Mila, that is. Not Meg. Although Meg’s pretty hilarious.) One of the things I love about Mila is that even though she’s, what, a B+ actress […]

Business Casual Superstar #480: Halloween Costume: Lois Griffin (Family Guy)

I know it makes me a terrible feminist, and a terrible POC, and a terrible supporter of Palestine, but I do enjoy me some “Family Guy.” Come on, you have to give Seth MacFarlane some credit for basically selling Fox the SAME SHOW (Family Guy, American Dad, the Cleveland Show) three times. Although the Cleveland […]

Business Casual Superstar #479: Halloween Costume: Mister Robinson (Eddie Murphy, Saturday Night Live)

The other day, I put together an outfit inspired by Mister Fred Rogers of Neighborhood fame. He knows how to break-dance, you guys. It had to be done. But today I’m here with Eddie Murphy’s answer to Mister Rogers: Mister Robinson. If you’re an SNL fan, you know all about Mister Robinson. Or maybe you […]

Business Casual Superstar #478: Halloween Costume: Mister Fred Rogers (Mister Rogers’s Neighborhood)

I loved Mister Rogers when I was little. We all did. All of us except Andy, who has informed me that even as a little boy, he would have no truck with cardigan-wearing elderly gentlemen that wanted him to join them on a trip to their magical kingdoms. He explained it to me when I […]

Business Casual Superstar #477: Halloween Costume: Blue Man Group

Have you guys ever blue-n yourselves? I bet a couple of you have – at least a couple. Or you’ve tried to. And frankly, if you can show up at work after blue-ing yourself, why the heck not?! I ask you! Today’s costume, as you may have guessed, is inspired by the Blue Man Group. […]
