So I'm in a bit of a style rut...OK a HUGE style rut. As in I still wear clothes from high school (hey, they still fit). My oldest shirt is from 1987 - it has the date on it (summer camp T-shirt).

So my staff has finally had enough. They have done a What Not to Wear intervention. Today, one of the secretaries took me to the big city. I have never shopped at Macy's before. Several hundred dollars later, I have a good start to a new wardrobe. My credit card is crying "You spent money at a department store!!! What gives?!?!?!?!?!"

My office manager has a salon day planned for next week, since I've had the same hairstyle for a long time. I pointed out the ground rules - I don't own a hairdryer or a curling iron, so it really does have to be wash and wear. Oh, and I am bad about keeping up on stuff, so dyeing my hair may not last.

I have great staff at the office. Truly a second family.

You may consider trying Stichfix.... I have several friends that do it and they are usually pretty satisfied with the boxes they get. You have to set up a profile and you don't have to go shopping! You can send back what you don't like too.

I was going to suggest stitchfix too! How wonderful that your office staff did that for you! Stitchfix may be a nice way to continue expanding your wardrobe without investing a lot of time.
