What to wear to a power meeting?

Monday, May 03, 2010

So what do I want to be when I grow up? Honestly, a fierce creative business woman and a fashion-forward inspiring mom....hm, I think I'm there! *laughing*

For those of you who do not know what I do, I am the publisher/owner of Skorch Magazine, owner/creator of Clique Mixer, owner Kane Kreative, and s mommy & wifey. I work from home 100% of the time, and yes, I'm going completely stir crazy!! :) Thus the creation of this super awesome blog!! *another chuckle*

My fashion week is like this:
    Mon, Wed, Fri - WAHM (work at home mom) - jeans/tanks/casual
    Tues & Thurs - All Business with meetings/interviews/site tours
    Weekends - Casual or Dressy for an event

So, as you can see, this fashion entry is dedicated to Power-Meeting Tuesday when I met with the VP of Pollin Hotels, who owns Aloft Hotel in Portland, OR, to discuss an event partnership with Clique Mixer.  Then, a trip to the grocery store! Totally posh :). Hope it inspired you.

Ps - Down 10 lb's! woo hoo!

Oh yah, I'm shopping....I think it's hilarious that the aisle I chose to take this picture was me in the candy and chips aisle!! LOL -  I swear I was just walking through and it was the only aisle without any photo bombers!

Outfit Deets:

Blazer - LOVE the back detailing!


Lane Bryant - Sateen pleated back jacket $69.50

Top - Vintage Lane Bryant - I bought up EVERY color when they went on clearance. The essential satin sleeveless blouse.

Pants - As usual, Lane Bryant Houston Trousers. 

Sunglasses - Curvy Girl Clothing

Shoes -

What do you think? I love to hear your comments.

It is so hard to find blouses for work since all the button up shirts that most women can wear, pucker for me. I love love love love your blouse! I am in the market. Thanks for all the great posts!
