This skirt+cardigan combo has been one of my work uniforms for as long as I can remember. There isn’t much you can do in the way of updating it (especially if you work in an office environment that falls closer to the conservative side of the spectrum than the creative), but incorporating new pieces always makes things more interesting, if not original.
Or, in this case, more fancy. Sorry, fancay.
What’s so fancy? Mixed in with my ubiquitous J. Crew pieces is a (thrifted) Boss skirt and a vintagey Mulberry bag.
I had a bit of an internal tussle over the Boss piece, because of the company’s history during the ’30s and 40’s. I eventually bought it because I felt that, in doing so, I wasn’t directly supporting the company, but rather my local thrift store. Have you ever struggled with similar ethical qualms? Where do you draw the line?
