Business Casual Superstar #476: Halloween Costume: Miss Frizzle (The Magic School Bus)

I’m so, so excited about today’s costume, you guys. I LOVED the Magic School Bus when I was a kid! Miss Frizzle was the best! I wanted to punch Arnold in the face, though. What an annoying little wanker. >:( I learned so much about so many things, you guys. I learned about the solar […]

Business Casual Superstar #475: Halloween Costume: Golden Face, Threat Level Midnight (Jim Halpert, John Krasinski, The Office)

Phew! That’s quite a byline, huh? Today’s costume is a little confusing, guys, so I’ll wait while you get a pen and a piece of paper to diagram this out. Today’s costume is GoldenFace, the villain in “Threat Level Midnight,” which is a motion picture written by Michael Scott. GoldenFace is played by Jim Halpert, […]

Business Casual Superstar #474: Halloween Costume: Debbie Downer (Rachel Dratch, Saturday Night Live)

I looooove SNL, you guys. I watch that show every weekend. It’s great! And even when it’s terrible, it’s great! I don’t know why I love it so much. I just do. It’s such good fun. I like the format, too. Cold open, usually political. Theme. Monologue, usually by someone I like well enough. Skits, […]

Business Casual Superstar #473: Halloween Costume: Dora Winifred (D.W.) from Arthur!

I LOVED the Arthur books when I was in third grade. I used to get them from the library in my elementary school and sign my name on the little card and take them home in my backpack and read them after dinner. I would try REAL hard not to look for (or even find […]

Business Casual Superstar #472: Halloween Costume: Eric Carman (South Park)

Today’s costume is inspired by one of my favorite cartoon characters: the awful, incorrigible, racist, anti-Semitic, devil-child of South Park, Eric Cartman. Here are some interesting facts about everyone’s favorite a-hole. Cartman was the president of Mel Gibson’s fan club. He once tried to exterminate the Jews. He pretended to be a special needs child […]

Business Casual Superstar #471: Halloween Costumes: Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons, Big Bang Theory)

The month of October is upon us, and that means that every day this month (hopefully including weekends, but we’ll see) I’ll be putting up a Halloween costume that’s appropriate for the office. Nothing slutty, nothing short, nothing obscene. Just good, clean, tasteful fun. Most of my costumes are going to be inspired by book, […]

Business Casual Superstar #470: Warm Fall/Winter Boots

I live in Chicago, folks, and it gets COLD here. Cold as a witch’s tit in a brass bra. (Hahaha, I just wanted to be able to use that phrase. Isn’t it weird and hilarious?!) Anyway, during three years of law school, I had to walk a little less than a mile from the train […]

Business Casual Superstar #469: Olivia Munn can’t do anything right

Olivia Munn is the worst addition to the Daily Show with Jon Stewart in … well, ever. She’s just.not.funny. And worse than that, she just comes off kind of … dumb. And yet she’s always giving interviews about how women can be funny, smart, AND pretty. Note to Olivia: you are only one of those […]

Business Casual Superstar #468: A Favorite Fall Outfit

I don’t really wear leggings. I’m not a fan. I have some but I usually wear them under my jeans when it’s really cold – like, -10F. Then I’ll pull some on. But every normal person seems to love leggings, so today’s outfit is a great ensemble for fall that includes, spoiler alert, leggings. It’s […]
