So, this is my second posting for the day. I felt that this topic needed its own post and couldn't be lumped into a single posting. I went to work today. In SF I bought a burgundy silk dress that went about 2.5 inches above the knee. You can see it here. I wore it like this girl did in the picture, as you can tell its a bit cleavagy, so I wore a black tank underneath. In addition, I wore black crocheted tights (Roberto Cavalli, in case you were interested) and my black boots. Now, I know I looked cute. The problem is that my co-workers look like shit. And not the "we're comfortable" but kind of like shit. Some look comfortable, some look like they are lucky if they make it out of the door matching. What I wore today I could have easily worn at my old office and no one would have even given me a second glance.
Today, I just felt like everyone was looking at me. I saw the girls looking me up and down. I can't tell if they are admiring or judging or both. Or jealous that they can't wear that kind of shit. I have big boobs that can't be hidden, though I try. I wear tanks and I've been extra careful to wear things that don't accentuate. My question to you all is this: Should I conform to their low standards of fashion? Am I somehow hurting my career and risking not being taken seriously--or are these just jealous bitches that I shouldn't let bother me? Keep in mind that nothing about me is "toned down". As soon as I speak, people know I'm not to be fucked with. Maybe I'm just being over analytical. My co-worker told me that I "dress beautifully". What do you think?
