Corporate Chic II

HI and welcome to our Corporate Chic section. Something new we are trying out and I guess all of you have gotten a feel of what this section will feature already from the first entry.

I'm pretty new to my workplace, only 3 1/2 months into the job as an engineer and I have to say its been interesting. My job does not require me to be outside and mainly involves sitting in front of the computer doing calculations. In my workplace, there is no strict dress code and you can wear just about anything as long as it is decent (covers just enough of all the right places :P). Because of this freedom, I really have headaches thinking of new outfits every day to the point that sometimes I wish they just gave us uniforms and forced us to wear it. But of course as a shopaholic and fashion junkee, freedom to dress gives me more excuse to shop and also be more adventurous in what I wear.

So for MONDAY, I definitely was down in the dumps with Monday blues and thus chose a dark grey dress to go with my mood and pairing it with a black blazer.

Blazer | BCBGeneration

For TUESDAY, I remembered waking up and having a hard time thinking of what to wear and because I was in a hurry, I just pulled whatever that has been ironed recently and this is what I came up with.

Top | Sg. Wang bargain
Skirt | Vintage

This below would be WEDNESDAY's outfit. It was a rainy day so me being afraid of the cold made sure that I was fully covered and prepared for a day in the office.

Dress | Sg. Wang bargain
Blazer | MNG

On THURSDAY, I was attempting the pastel look to brighten up my choice of clothes and this was what I wore.

Top | MNG
Skirt | Doublewoot

And finally, the best day of the week is here, FRIDAY! Usually on Friday's, people in the office usually wear the company t-shirt as part of T-shirt day, but I sometimes opt to dress up because it always makes me feel better :D 

Top | Padini
Skirt | Nicole

Basically, this is what I wear to the office everyday and of course every week I try to mix and match whenever possible to avoid the usual "Oh NO! There's nothing left for me to wear". This is basically to control my shopping, so I really try to pair more tops with bottoms to get varieties of outfits. But sometimes, a simple dress is the best because you don't have to crack your head to think of what to pair it with! 

SO you have ventured into my one week at work and how do you like it so far? We would love to hear your comments on our new ideas and also hope to get any feedbacks on what else you would like to see. It has been fun contributing to this column and we will definitely come up with more. Look forward to Corporate Chic III when you check back the next time. Till then!

  1. I know there will be many difficulties and challenges but I am determined to do it. If it does not succeed then it will be a lesson for me as well
