You saw the title, rolled your eyes, chuckled a bit (at my expense), and hopefully continued reading. But at least I made you smile!
And if you want to make me smile, don’t forget to join the Fashionably Employed Link Up to share your serious sci-fi secret agent (or just regular on-the-job) style whether it be corporate, classroom, creative, or anything in between. I’d love to see each week what you’re wearing to your gig and know so many others love all the professional style inspiration!
I rarely wear all black, even with a tiny touch of white on my shoes. But this morning, encouraged to try another spin on my StyleUp suggestion, I sported all black head-to-toe with just a bit of white to finish off the look (Will Smith MIB-style). Maybe the stealth look will give me just a shred of bad ass edge ~ unlikely, but worth a shot.
Update: StyleUp was a start up site that emailed subscribers an outfit idea each night for the next day based on the weather forecast in their area. As far as I can tell, they’re no longer up and running. But you can still find lots of great style inspiration from a boatload of spots. My favorite place might be Pinterest (where I also keep reminders of what all my favorite bloggers are wearing).
No?! You don’t see me channeling my inner Will Smith secret agent? Maybe next time…
As promised, I tell you today a bit more about my crush on StyleUp. I shared with you yesterday about the lovely emails they send me each evening. Aside from every day style, the crew behind the scenes also provides specific style suggestions upon request for events or functions sneaking up on your calendar. Can’t decide what to wear to accept that great award you worked so hard to earn? StyleUp has offered to do the legwork so you can focus on winning more awards for which to attend acceptance parties! (I know, it’s tough being awesome…)
Additionally, they retain a neat little Pinterest-style archive of the outfits I “Love” so I can return for inspiration from emails past. I have a mad crush on Pinterest due to my passion for e-organization; a curated set of links to things I love keeps clutter off my counter and out of my brain (no piles of torn out magazine pages or printed images and I don’t have to remember anything because I can always simply scan the electronic files to recollect the goodness). So I surely love equally their “inspiration / reminder board” of awesome outfits they have previously passed along.
Finally, many of the photos come from bloggers, so it’s a great way to find new blogs to follow. They do all the hard work of finding bloggers whose style I likely love, and I reap the benefits of their analytic sweat and heavy-lifting. And guess what?!! After seeing my post yesterday, they invited me to join their blogger network as a contributor to their database of style suggestions. How cool, right?! (I promise, I wrote both today’s and yesterday’s posts before hearing from them and couldn’t have been more excited when they reached out! When you sign up for their emails, you may just see me float into your inbox!!!)
So… if you haven’t checked out StyleUp, what are you waiting for?! Free fashion advice delivered right to your bedside table (or wherever you keep your phone while you slumber)! If I do get a little bad ass cubicle credibility for my all-black ensemble, I certainly have StyleUp to thank for it. I doubt I would have traveled down this sci-fi secret agent road without them.
