As a day to day female boss lady I felt it was important to capture more than just a few work wear style, but rather paint a picture of the current female career journey. I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed researching and making this.

Beauuuutiful red shoes. (the creative director look - loved the bright yellow socks paired with them too!) I was surprised the see-through look actually looked very professional.. maybe a vest style formal crop top which hits right above the waist instead of the bra might be more you know formal? ;)
girl u r misrepresenting the ladies right now..don't matter what shape you are chica you can't stroll into an interview in ANY of those outfits nor could you get away with wearing them until u got 5-10yrs in an mad seniority.Come on mama.
Great video! Well thought out and put together. I agree that the last outfit might be just a bit too much but I have seen other women in executive positions (I'm a mid level manager at a media company) wear sheer blouses with a camisole underneath and no one seemed bothered. I work on the west coast so that might make a difference - "executive attire" seems a bit more relaxed here.
Is it really appropriate to wear a see through shirt to the office now? That surprises me. Looks really lovely on you, would just expect it to be worn for a night out. Why do we as women push for the right to wear skimpy, sexy clothes to the work place and then scream sexual harassment if a man responds to that? I am not condoning their behavior but don't we as women have a responsibility here, too? Just saying...
I usually simply DO the work and let the quality speak to my capability. Anyone who comments on what I wear to work will have to deal with the personal me esp given the effort I put into my work. Doesn't mean I'd run around the office in shorts and a tank top. But if anyone wants to comment about the tightness of my top or my private sexual life as a reflection of the 'kind of work' I do, they'll have shit to deal with. Looking powerful doesn't work if there is no integrity or honesty in the work itself, no matter CEO or receptionist. I say 'me', but that's how work should be thought of.
I know this is an older comment but I've just watched this video and I have to disagree a bit with what you've said. I personally wouldn't wear the exact outfits shown (because I wear a very limited colour palette) but I could count on one hand the number of times that I've worn a typical 'professional' outfit to the office in the past ten years. I manage a department of an engineering firm, there are 4 people above me including the owners, I have staff, an office, a pretty good salary and get a bonus every year so I would say that qualifies me in your 'high power executive' category. I don't go to the office looking like a slob or wear completely sheer tops (because it's not my thing) but it's not unusual for me to wear skinny jeans, a nice sweater or top and jacket, and heels/ballet flats or boots (depending on the season).
To answer your question, no, it is not appropriate in probably 90% of work places. None of these outfits say "high power executive material", they say "minimum wage receptionist who was hired for her looks and can't be trusted with anything more complicated than making coffee". If you want to be taken seriously in the office, dress like you're there for work and not the happy hour you'll hit up afterwards.
I didn't imply anything except men and women working together should respect each other and the work place and dress and behave accordingly. But it's only fair if it goes both ways. Why does that offend you so much? Do you have daughters? Would you really teach them to dress provocatively in the work place? How is that professional? How can we as women expect to be taken seriously if we come to work dressed for a night out at the club? I'm not saying go to work in unattractive, cover every inch of skin outfits, just decide if your going to party or go to work and dress appropriately.
YES YES YES EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS YES GAWD
Seriously, you looked absolutely extraordinary in everything and such amazing content! Amazing points and just omg, yes. Can't wait to see more stuff like this from you! X
You message to women (and men too) is awesome. I was planning on posting it to my feed on FB. You know, to rattle their cages, until the see-thru top suit. I can see it being something worn at say Vogue or the like or a perfect after-work outfit, but for main-stream business, that will get you sent home. I want them looking at my eyes and work. I know we should be past all this, but like your video shows, we still have a long way to go in terms of respect and salary. One day it won't matter, but unfortunately it still does. I want to change their attitudes, not confirm that all I bring is "sexy" to the office. Showing that much skin at the office would have the opposite effect for me, hyper-self awareness, instead of self confident. But you do you. I am brave, just not that brave.
I LOVE this!!! I've only watched 3 of your videos, and you inspire me SO much!! I'm having such a hard time learning to love myself. a lot of it has to do with the misogynistic values of this country. Men shouldn't get to decide what women should feel good wearing. when you reached the part about advertising, I cried. The lack of representation of realistic women is REAL. I haven't bought clothes for myself in 4 years, because I'm so embarrassed to go shopping, and to admit somethings don't fit. your body positivity is contagious.
Sparkles Gonzalez sweetie it takes time to get comfortable with your body...its the only one you get so be good to it but love it too. go shopping enjoy yourself...buy something you have NEVER dreamed of wearing put it on at home, get comfortable, take it for a spin down to the store. you are beautiful...now go enjoy it!
That was a great video! It really touched home. I am a chemical engineer at a chemical plant, so I wear coveralls to work everyday.It definitely feels different to be in a male dominated industry, but it feels great to see there are so many women making it out there :)
You are just amazing, just thanks to be there for us. I love your look book, all your ideas and you. I don't know why people are talking we are normal. We aren't like in the magazine and we accept. Just you are amazing bc now I'm gonna wear what I want and even in fat bc I know it and I don't hide it. I love my body and I'm proud of it. Just thank you. And WOMEN ARE THE QUEEN IN THE WORLD. WE ARE ALL EGAL.
The yellow blouse needs to go along with the socks and shoes.But the yellow in the Head of Technology look was POPPIN with the black and white lace dress.Yellow can be an awkward color to pair with things sometimes,maybe a yellow look book for more ideas???Thanks for the fun vid!!
I really love this Lookbook and I love your personality. You are such an inspiration to me and you really are making me so happy when I see you like my pics on instagram here lately <3
This really was so inspirational. All of these things you stated are facts. I am pro-women and pro everything for us. Women are shamed for everything we basically do.
"Our bodies aren't thin enough" , "She doesn't fit the 'secretary' part" , "She's too short" , "Don't promote her she's about ready to have children" - So many things dictate us as women and we have to work twice as hard as any man to get noticed.
You really are an inspiration. I hope my channel can reflect even 1% as much as your's does to the world. #LazerSquad
Welcome to LA (in the a.m.)! I just wanted to say that I love how you put alternatives in the description box for the cute garments that are unfortunately no longer available. That's really thoughtful of you. Also, I love all the looks but the intern one is my fav! 😍
OMFG! Girl, you got something here with this one. I am beside myself how creative and fun this was. I love it! You did an amazing job. What a difference in such short time for you. Your an inspiration. And I honestly feel you have only begun to shine. I do make up and photography. But always wanted to be a part of something great. Keep me in mind when you get up there as I know you will be making a positive difference in this world. Congrats! Bravo! Well done!
One reason women often make less than men is very simple. We have children, and they are the priority. Often we choose part time work or not working outside the home for several years. We put our homes and families first. Then later we may pursue something in the work force again. It comes down to what is important in each woman's life. Many women also work longer than their husbands, men retire sooner either because of illness or other goals. Many women support their husbands and share in those goals together just in different ways. Also no matter what the media or society says, women can have it all but not at the same time. Their marriages, children, and even their health will suffer...the 'I can have it all' lie, has simply increased the use of antidepressants and mood stabilizing drugs among women primarily.
A belief that frustrates me within my parents generation (baby boomers 60-65) the belief you are of less value being overweight. My parents are convinced a friend of mine didn't get a promotion at a huge insurance company, cause she's fat. First of all she's about a size 14.
A size 14 is fat. Just because the average American woman is now a size 16, doesn't mean anything less makes you "average" or even "thin". The average American woman is very fat, so if you're near the average size guess what... you're fat.
I am 53 and sadly I have seen this happen first hand. I am a plus size woman...size 20/22 and was an account manager for 25 plus years. But was actually told back in the early 80's that I was passed over for a promotion because my weigh didn't represent what the company wanted to portray. Yes that was the 80's but right up until I took an early retirement I saw this happening.
wow, good job! 😀 I have been noticing the ads you get prevideo are from LA MER. you don't get to choose those, right? so that's a pretty good ad. Would you ever do makeup video? or FOTD because your makeup is bomb especially with that yellow shirt/couch pattern pants. 🐱🐱🐱 peace.
