Continuing the recent trend in high-waistedness, we have here one high-waisted, front-button, a-line denim skirt. Paired with a yellow pussy bow blouse (do you hate that it's called "pussy bow" as much as I do?) and wedges, the look takes on a bit of a dressed-down, just-wandered-away-from-the-secretarial-pool-circa-1978 vibe.
I was an actual secretary for about a hot minute in Seattle in the 90s at various temp jobs, and I can honestly tell you that I am the worst secretary ever. I am a person who is easy bored, and in a job where you just need to be efficient and get tasks done as per protocol, my creative flair for renaming files with clever (I thought) puns and monikers and my inability to behave obsequiously in the presence of misogynist old-school boss types usually didn't win many points. I used to find these cowering office types who would practically prostrate themselves in front of their ruddy-faced, golf-obsessed bosses sort of funny. Like, sad-funny. Funny odd, not funny ha ha. The Emperor has no clothes, and all that.
There were good things too. The good part about being a temp secretary is that you got to see the insides of a lot of the cool big buildings in the city. It was also great being able to say no when you were asked back to an assignment that you didn't care for. However, the best part about it was learning what type of professional environments you definitely wanted to avoid in the future. Believe me, there were many.
