Workday Reading

The Eight: October 26, 2016



1) All the hard questions you’re afraid to ask your boss, and how to ask them. (Refinery29)

2) This pale pink shimmer pencil skirt from ASOS is on my must-have list.

3) The rise of dating app fatigue, why Tinder is declining in popularity. (The Atlantic)

4) This Hazel Statement Necklace from Stella & Dot is perfect with a crewneck sweater.  And their embroidered choker is lovely and delicate (not to mention on trend).

5) How to write a post-interview thank you note (and a template). (Career Contessa)

6) This peplum sweater from Ted Baker is amazing.  Over peplums?  Try an open back sweater instead.

7) Meet the little-known black pioneer who designed dresses for America’s most-influential families. (Racked)

8) Ann Taylor’s scallop Mary Jane pumps are delightful.  Their crystal-studded block heels are perfect for holiday parties.

    Would you do a post on wearing two or three delicate necklaces – layered – and ways to keep them from getting tangled?

    How are you supposed to make backless sweaters work? Wearing a top under it eliminates the point of a backless sweater and many of us need to wear bras. Plus frankly doesn’t a backless sweater just negate the point of a sweater?

    re: #1… I thought at least one of those questions would be about sexual harassment at work. Not quite on Refinery’s mind, despite being on America’s!
