The Workday Reading: September 20, 2017


1) Redefining Brave: Working during cancer wasn’t badass, it was stupid. (Shondaland)

3) Why women’s brands should be sized more like men’s clothing. (Racked)

5) Non-obvious things you can do to make your resume stand out. (C&C)

6) Fall Floral Musts: an Old Navy shift, a poppy-print blouse, a pleated skirt.

8) Need suits? Try this Emerson burgundy pantsuit or this boucle skirt suit.

9) Please stop asking me when I’m getting married. (Everygirl)

10) This Badgley Mishcka dress is the ultimate day-to-night dress.

11) The difference between a career ‘sponsor’ and a mentor. ‘(Motto)


When Your Childhood Hero Fails You. There’s a genocide happening in Burma, and their Peace Prize-winning PM doesn’t care.

When You Need an Easy Updo. This simple chignon has real promise.

What I’m Buying. I’ve heard great things about these towels from Amazon.

    I love the poppy blouse – but – what is the deal with such wide necklines? I’m only a B cup and I’d be popping out of that blouse. Yes, I know that tanks can bridge the “gap,” but it also changes the silhouette and beauty of the cut. I work on the Hill and I could NEVER wear a blouse like that for risk of scandalizing CSPAN. And it’s often a problem I run into when shopping for tops and dresses. I just returned a Boden wrap dress for the same reason (https://www.bodenusa.com/en-us/clearance/womens-dresses/day-dresses/ww213-ivo/womens-ivory-sunglasses-lara-wrap-dress). Am I missing something? I’m kind of petite but overall I don’t think I have a body that is all that different from most women in this area of my body.

      For the price, they’re really good. I think the Costco ones might be a little better, but my Costco doesn’t sell bath sheets, and I like the bigger towel.
