What I Wear to Work: A Georgia account exec’s fashion goes where her mood—and her hair—take it
38, senior account executive, CMD (Construction Market Data) Group, Norcross, Ga.
What does your company do? We provide information on anything involving construction—like what projects are going on in the U.S. and Canada and prices of raw materials.
How do you pick outfits in the morning? It depends on the day and the mood. Most of the time, my hair will dictate what I wear.
Explain how that works. Sometimes I wear it crinkly, sometimes curly, and sometimes straight, depending how cooperative it is. If I put it in a bun, I’ll do a business-conservative look. However, if it’s curling and falling in all the right places, it can be dressed up with some jeans and a great blouse.
So you have a vibe, not a look. Yes, that’s totally it. I don’t spend a lot of time getting my clothes together. I keep it simple.
Is that one of those bendy necklaces? Yes! My co-worker here had similar jewelry, and I loved it, so she got one for me.
Where do you shop? Ninety percent vintage consignment stores.
Are those threequarter-length sleeves? I love, love, love three-quarter jackets. It’s really my thing right now. I like my arms out.
Why? I’m originally from Ohio, and the first year I moved here, I didn’t turn on my heat in the winter. When it’s 50 or 60 degrees outside, a three-quarter jacket works just fine. And then I wear some gloves that reach up to the cuff.
