Workday Reading

The Daily Eight: September 14, 2016


I’ve posted this before, but it needs repeating.


1) How WH staffers adopted an “amplification strategy” to ensure they were heard in meetings.  (The Cut, an edited version of yesterday’s WaPost article, because being heard matters.)

2) This $59 H&M dress is a superb LBD.

3) Your weight can affect your job prospects–but only if you’re a woman. (Science of Us)

4) Lantern and bell sleeves are big this fall.  I love this Jonathan Simkhai sweater and this blazer from LOFT.  And this Milly cocktail dress is to die for.

5) Is “What do you do?” a loaded question? (LinkedIn)

6) Off 5th is my new source for discount denim.  Picked up these AG Angels for a song.

7) Are ancient botanical remedies the cure for the antibiotic resistance crisis? (The New York Times)

8) Gap’s new collection is perfect for cozy casual pieces like this oversized sweater and this turtleneck poncho.

    Any tips on avoiding creases when hot rolling? I love the volume I get and the curls on the ends, but I always feel like there’s a bit of a crease on the sides of my head where the roller starts “rolling”.

    I love the atricle on the “amplification strategy” for a few reasons, but mostly because it shows women working together to help each other succeed. I’ve known a few women that were more detrimental to other ladies in the office than the men.
