Essie Means Business - Spring 2012 Collection

Nail polish is totally trending in the world of fashion these days. Designers and at-home DIYers alike are experimenting with bold colors and colorfully complex combinations.

But perhaps it's time nail polish took a page from the world of high finance, no? With well-suited (yes, pun intended) names like "A Crewed Interest" and "Tour de Finance" Essie claims to be paying homage to "the beautiful ambitious women of action." I can dig that.

Introducing Essie's Spring 2012 Collection which pays homage to us corporate working girls. Essie says:
“Whatever your strategy, choose one of six ingenious colors that means business.” 


From Left to Right: Navigate Her, A Crewed Interest, To Buy or Not to Buy, Tour de Finance, OlĂ© Caliente, Orange It’s Obvious!

Furry Winter Accessories

I'm not usually a fur person but for some reason I've recently been inspired by the fuzzy, warm softness that they bring.

I'm not exactly sure how appropriate or not so appropriate fur is in an office setting but most of these items are for outwear so at least you can leave the PETA protestors in the office lobby...I kid, I kid. These items are all faux fur. I love the animals.

How to Organize Your Work Bag

New Year's resolutions are still ripe on people's minds. Not quite a resolution but one of the things that I've always struggled with in terms of improvement areas in my life is organization - and by this I mean physically keeping things in their place. I'm pretty good at mentally organizing concepts, understanding what I need to get done and prioritizing my work but don't take a look inside my work bag. Two words: bomb explosion.

By the end of the week my bag - which is tasked with the difficult job of holding my laptop (and it's accessories - mouse, charger), various work documents, small notebook, wallet, small makeup bag, pens, lip gloss, gum, etc etc etc - looks a hot mess. Usually these things sort of meld together in the large compartment.

In this previous post Does the Perfect Laptop Bag Exist I discussed how my iPhone often finds itself in the "bag black hole" and that I often find myself freaking out because I think I've lost it. So imagine my delight when I discovered solutions to help organize the mess within my current bag. 

Bag organizers, who woulda thought? I recently found these lovely and very affordable ones from invite.L

Looking Forward to Spring with Colored Suits

A few days ago I featured the color white as a way to brighten up a winter wardrobe but while online window shopping I was inspired by these colorful suits.

These suits, all from Shopbop.com, are a bright statement when worn in their complete 2-piece glory. But can also liven up an outfit when separately worn. I love the monochrome theme of these select suits.
