Q: During the Great Depression, what did women use black eye liner for?
MAC has this great eye shadow that matched my dress!
A: to draw a line down the back of her leg to make it appear as though she was wearing nylons!
How was that for some fashion fun on your Tuesday afternoon?? I got this desk calendar... one of the tear-away ones. And it's full of fun fashion facts and history. Cool, right?? When I decided to wear these tights, I knew I would put this little fun fact to use in my post.
A few notes on the outfit: I didn't have a wrap dress and I found this one on clearance for $14.97!!! Can you believe it?! Originally, I think it was $98.00. I had to get it!! Anyway, I liked it better without the cami underneath, but I tend to go more conservative at work. I think it's important, even for us fashionistas, to make sure we dress with intention and style, but modify appropriately on the job. I make in a priority to look professional in order to be taken seriously as a young, black woman in the professional world. It's important to me to be fashionable and keep my sassy looks, without losing my sense of professionalism in the workplace.
Do you have a job where you find it necessary to modify certain outfits for the sake of professionalism?
By the way, I work as an intake specialist in behavioral and developmental pediatrics. Basically, that means I speak with parents about the challenges their children are having, along with triage and making referrals.
