2) Visible panty line is the working woman’s curse. But you can banish it with the super-smooth Hanky Panky Bare Thong. Don’t want to pay $22 for underwear? Aerie has a very, very similar product, four pair cost $26.50.
3) Who’s ready for a vacation? Learnvest has travel tips for working women on a budget.
4) I need a new short-sleeve work dress. This Maggy London cap sleeve dress (under-$100) caught my eye, as did this Antonio Melani Marisol dress. Want color? This Ellen Tracy dress is a pretty blue, and this crimson short-sleeve sheath really makes a statement.
5) Each year, I receive dozens of e-mails from women asking if they should remove their wedding rings before job interviews. Many women fear that prospective employers will see a married woman and think, “Don’t hire her, she’s going to need maternity leave,” or “She’ll probably just quit to have children.” So I was glad to see that the Administration toughened discrimination protections for pregnant employees, maybe it will have the desired effect.
6) I would be lost without hot rollers. They are a time-saving miracle because your hair does itself while you apply makeup, clean, eat breakfast, etc. Oprah has a tutorial for how to use my favorite Conair rollers.
7) 9 Resume Mistakes That Might Cost You a Job. Pay particular attention to number three.
8) Simple. chic bracelets are on my summer wish list. This pyramid tennis bracelet is incredible. In the under-$75 category, this Wishbone Cuff and this Jules Smith Big Bang Cuff are both lovely choices.
9) In law school? Starting law school? The video tutorials on Quimbee are saving my life. Sign up here, $15 per month or $99 per year. It’s like having a private tutor give you a refresher course. (The like above is an affiliate link.)
10) These black Sam Edelman pumps have a classic look, but they’re anything but basic.
11) In January, Ask A Manager received her strangest reader e-mail ever from a woman who had been asked to cook dinner for the company’s senior staff as part of the interview process. She recently posted a follow-up.
