"Everyone is a marketer" I once read. I agree. Whether you are an employee or an employer, unhealthy somehow you have to "market" yourself so dressing the part is essential.
Being a business owner and a graphic/web designer, unfortunately, I am not always on the creative side. Sometimes, I have to play the executive type also. Fortunately, I don't always have to meet corporate clients but if I do, the following is probably what would represent me the most (may not be the exact same brands, cuz umm, the satchel alone is $1,150) but the idea is there.
Jessica Simpson Chevron Stripe Sweater Dress $128
Max Azria Cutout crepe blazer $214
Michael Antonio Lux Pump $39.95
Mulberry Small Bayswater Satchel $1,150
Vince Camuto Gold Cuff $88
Anna Beck Designs "Gili" Green Chalcedony Teardrop Earrings $220
SpaRitual Nail Lacquer $10
