Anthropologie Tries To Sell Us A Seriously Racist Candle Stick and Gets Called the F**k Out

Anthropologie tried to sell a really racist candlestick, with a figurine of a traditional “Mammy,” after it had predictably marked it up about 3000%, obviously. The candle stick has since been removed from the site, but Jezebel has some pictures up. I saw this comment made by Rachel Stewart (of RachelStewartJewelry, which offers some really […]

Business Casual Superstar #504: A Pretty Fall Outfit, Complete with Leopard Print!

Yikes, but I’ve been gone a while, huh? I don’t know, sometimes it’s just hard to work up the motivation to post. Back in law school, this was what I did to relieve some stress and work out my creative muscles, which were at risk of severe atrophy. (It turns out you cannot include sarcastic […]

Business Casual Superstar #497: Inspired by Regency England!

You guys knew it was only a matter of time before the romance novels I read inspired a fashion post. Don’t even pretend. You knew it was coming. You were waiting with baited breath. I can tell. It’s useless trying to hide these things from me. People are always surprised to find out I read […]

Business Casual Superstar #493: Another adorable skirt

Yesterday, I built an entire ensemble around a skirt I really liked. That skirt had birds on it. I don’t like birds, but somehow, things worked out. (I mean, like, people who put their little parakeets on their fingers and then kiss their beaks and their heads – I don’t get that. But then again, […]

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 #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 #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. […]

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 #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 […]
