Not per se, and right now I’m still thoroughly entrenched in that stretchy pants life, but I wish I had spent some time working someplace where people dressed to the nines and went all out with their hair and makeup.
Even when I worked in the city at PG&E, most of my coworkers did the bare minimum, but part of that is California style. Workplaces here are usually super casual, like business casual+casual.
I like looking “put together” and getting dressed up, though, as you can quite clearly tell by my propensity for black stretchy pants, haha… 🙂
This question occurred to me the other day as I was talking to a gal who’d recently moved from NYC to Novato, which is a BIG change, because this is a sleepy little town compared to metropolis. She described how she recently went to an orientation meeting for her new job here and was the only person wearing a suit and full makeup, and was like, “You don’t understand, everyone I knew in New York dressed up. Full makeup, everything. And there were people in that meeting wearing jeans and messy buns!”
Haha! Welcome to the Bay Area, where “Casual Friday” is every day of the week.
How about you? Have you ever worked someplace where people went all out with their hair, clothes and makeup? And related question: have you ever worked someplace where you had to wear a uniform?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. T-G-I-F. SO not kidding either.
