Cassi writes: Hey Outblush- I've A) recently gone on a weight loss revolution and B) am starting a new job next week where I have to dress up beyond skinny jeans and a blazer. The result of the two is that I don't have any clothes! I am looking for a new business wardrobe that goes beyond the average suit & blouse number. I am a size 8, an am pretty hourglass-y, & have no idea where to start. Please help & thank you!
YAY for you! Healthier, more successful and clearly more fashionable with the help from Outblush. You're on the way to the top! Speaking of tops, get some interchangeable tops that show off your waist-line and emphasize your feminine shape. It's an asset, not something to hide in the office. That's not to say you should let the girls do all the talking, but you should still look like a lady. A healthier lady! Remember, a good way to spice up any ensemble is with accessories. So stock up on affordable pieces to play with and spend where you need to (pants, dresses, shoes). Hope your year keeps looking up! -Magzilla
