1: ready for anything




For me, getting dressed every day is kind of a balancing act. It’s important that I wear things that are practical for running around the shop, lifting things, standing at a design table for hours on end, etc. But it’s equally important to look put-together and professional, so I’m ready for anything. Like a walk-in bridal consult, a meeting with a new client, or the rare occasion that I — like today — open my day planner and realize, @$#!,  I totally forgot about that speed-business-networking thing at the Chamber of Commerce this afternoon. This is why I also keep a little stash of dress-up accessories in my desk at the shop, just in case. A crazy business woman style survival kit, if you will. It includes: a pair of nude Nine West pumps (which I’ll probably change into before heading to said networking thing later), a couple of neutral scarves in case I need to cover a bleach/tea/lunch stain from earlier in the day, a few cute statement pieces of costume jewelry, red lipstick, and dry shampoo. My momma taught me to always be prepared. And to always wear clean underwear; you just never know.
