WFW: the big questions
With the countdown now firmly underway, I’m more excited than the pre-teen girls of New Zealand in the face of a New Direction concert. Much like those same pre-teens, I am asking myself the big questions, but instead of “will Harry Styles f
all in love with me from the stage?”
it’s “what on earth will I wear?”.
The group shows kick off at 6.30 on Thursday and Friday evenings, with doors opening from 5.30. Since I am not a lady of leisure (yet), I have work all day and will be jumping in a taxi and racing across town in my effort to get to shows. This means that whatever I wear has to be work appropriate, but since it’s Fashion Dah-link, I think I’d be a fool to turn up in the corporate uniform of Lambton Quay. It’s a chance to dress up!
Luckily for me, my workplace does not require suits and so I should be able to cook something up pretty easily. And so, I turned to a Google image search of “street style” to see what inspiration would strike. It wasn’t my best search ever, but it did throw up these pretties:
Digging the pink suit and the pastel contrast. Probably would use the sleeves for keeping my arms warm though.
Can you really go wrong with a black dress and geometric shapes? I can’t show that much leg at work, but the concept is sound…
Killer coat and a pair of jeans (on Friday) – yes. Easy peasy but still smart.
Oooooh, pretty blouse! I also love a cuffed pant.
Turns out I like pants quite a bit. Luckily I own pants in various bright shades so mayhap I can slap on a business appropriate blouse and some canary yellow pants and call it
a day. What do you guys reckon? Should I seize the day and go fashion mad? Or should I keep it somewhere in the middle ground and retain my long term career prospects?
