Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again

by cecylia on October 22, 2012

When I popped a photo of Jacki Anderson’s blue laptop bag on Instagram, you all fell head over heels in love with it. It’s no wonder, the perfect shape, minimalisitc lines, and rich Matisse blue ticks all the pre-requisite boxes of the dream work bag. I’ve never had an office job, hence have always dreamt of dressing up for work. It’s human nature, we covet what we don’t have. So this is what I’d wear if I had desk job: the jazzed up version. Office-attire doesn’t have to be boring! I hope the fairytale elements help to inspire your work outfit this week.

上个星期我在Instagram上展示了Jacki Anderson碧蓝的(手提电脑)包,你们立即爱上了她的设计。的确,她的包造型完美,线条简约,颜色秀丽,我们都被迷住了。我从来每作过办公室的工作,因此一直想望穿工作室的衣服。如果我在办公室里上班我会穿这身职位衣着。上班衣着不一定得单调,所以我的版本带点诙谐。希望这几处童话般的细节让你微笑!

Don't let the gents have all the fun: Miss Bibi Tophat ring

Cufflinks are cute wrist accessories - these astronauts will help you fly high

Does your workplace allow pooches?

Bowties are not just for the boys!

Add an element of surprise: like a window brooch that opens!

Always respect your elders :)


Vintage Jaeger jacket (similar one here)/ Esprit shirt / Hubbby’s Cufflinks / Le Noeud Papillon bowtie /Miss Bibi Brooch & Rings / Jacki Anderson laptop bag / Jil Sander skirt / Chloe pumps

Don’t you just love borrowing style from the boys? Happy Monday lovelies. What do you wear to work?
