Reader Request: Incorporating Fine Jewelry

How to wear fine jewelry with your everyday outfits

Lovely reader Nique asked:

I would love it if you would do a post on how to incorporate fine jewelry into an outfit. I am very fortunate to have a dad and husband who like to give me gifts of jewelry, but I am finding that my accessory choices have been big and bold lately, and the fine pieces seem almost too delicate to make a statement. I love these pieces, so I don’t want to get rid of them, and I hate that they are sitting in my jewelry box languishing away, but I don’t really know what to do with them. read more

Reader Request: Dressing Like a Boss

How to dress like a boss. Like a supervisor. Like someone in power who supervises other workers. (Not to be confused with "like a bawwwwsssss.")

Reader Nicky popped this one in the suggestion box:

I would love if you would do a post on what’s appropriate to wear for the office if you are the boss working in a conservative field. I am a physician, and I love clothes. My taste is somewhat traditional, oftentimes a little edgy, but never slutty. Sometimes I have a hard time deciding if something is not appropriate for me to wear to work because I am the boss, as well as that there are certain expectations about what doctors should wear. I am not talking cleavage or short-short skirts, but things like vibrant color and pattern combinations, skirts with no hose in summer, skinny pants, trouser jeans, knee high boots, skirts above my knee (what length is OK?) Audi’s harnesses, Frye Harness boots, etc. read more
