Fashion Advice for the Office

As I have mentioned before, I love fashion. I’m not really into “work clothes,” and I prefer an office where one can wear jeans, and be casual and comfortable. But I also believe in being stylish and relatively fabulous, and I believe in wearing great shoes. Sadly, I can’t wear heels that much anymore because of a stress fracture in my right second metatarsal (I think I’m remembering that right). But still, great shoes.

Point is, I like it when people look great at the office. Not super formal, just nice. It makes me happy. I take my advice from veteran catcher and all-around excellent mentor Crash Davis, a character from one of the best “workplace” movies of all time (more on this anon), Bull Durham.

Crash says, speaking to the upstart young pitcher, Nuke LaLoosh:

“Your shower shoes have fungus on them. You’ll never make it to the bigs with fungus on your shower shoes. Think classy, you’ll be classy. If you win 20 in the show, you can let the fungus grow back and the press’ll think you’re colorful. Until you win 20 in the show, however, it means you are a slob.”

Shower shoes, in this case, are not a metaphor, but they can be for us! This is my version of “dress for the job you want.”

“Think classy, you’ll be classy.” Truer words were never uttered, Kevin Costner. He is oddly hot in this movie, despite not being hot (to me) in any other context.
