Dress for the job you want

This “Writer’s Workshop Top” had me laughing all morning long:

You’re a little nervous about your first-ever critique – but you know that you’ve written a great story. You’re ready for some strong constructive criticism, and you know that you look casually chic in this fabulous cotton top. Its heather grey hue, stripes at the V-neck, and striped lining at the pockets are mellow materials for the garment’s construction of rolled, tabbed sleeves, a button-down front, and slight flare at the empire waist. As you sit at the workshop table in your new top, slim-fitting onyx trousers, and suede Oxfords, the waver in your voice disappears by the time you open your mouth to read a sample paragraph, feeling confident in both your submitted piece and in your excellent ensemble!

Sadly, Ms. 38D is hoping she can lose a few pounds so it won’t fit as snug. This violates the psirit of the top, IMHO.

  1. This suggests further fun in looking at clothing that isn’t currently described situationally and trying to come up w comparable descriptions. The American Apparel catalog alone could provide hours of entertainment along these lines. Also I can’t find it now, but the Banana Republic catalog from last fall might as well have been called “The Liz Lemon Collection.”

    I totally agree. If I get my wits about me, I’ll start a series.
