In 1994 and against all the odds the day finally arrived when I got that most longed for and coveted promotion – yes, a junior managerial position in a bank!
No more wearing the standard blue uniform and itchy white shirts, but the chance to wear exactly what I wanted.
Oh the excitement on that first Sunday evening with that specially chosen outfit hanging in the wardrobe – by the Thursday night of the same week, cue the frustration of having quickly run out of suitably appropriate clothing for a 24-year-old woman in a traditionally male environment.
This led to many evenings and days of having the bed strewn with every conceivable clothing combination – some successful and others not so. The navy and cream tie with a white shirt with the largest cuffs ever seen is something that will be ingrained in my memory for life!
Fast forward 20 years and still working in a corporate environment…… has anything changed – sadly no!
So borne out of need and frustration that I’m sure you’ve all experienced, I decided to launch Working Wardrobe.com, a range of ladies corporate clothing options for professional ladies just like you based on the following core principles;
- Classic design pieces
- Interchangeable options
- Easy to care for items
- Durable and travel-friendly fabrics
Welcome to the world of Working Wardrobe ladies!
