Unfortunately, I was too sick to go into the office today. Which is a bummer for two reasons: first, that no one saw this questionable outfit (like, really, is this an “outfit?”) and second, because I had no one to take my picture! This crappy photo booth self portrait doesn’t do justice to this Pussy-Galore-Jenny-Flex homage.

Sorry for the delay on this one, ladies and gents! I’ve gotten ill, which is pretty much ruining the best week ever. I apologize to everyone expecting Global James Bond Day postcards from me: half went out on Monday, the other half will hopefully go out today.
Anyhoo, back to the celebration of Wednesday, which touted the buttoned up styles of our leading ladies. I would have liked to do innocent Solitaire, but since chopping off my hair, it didn’t feel right.
So, I decided to make this the day I nailed a look, as best I could, and went after Vesper’s steely intro in Casino Royale.
Now, I don’t wear makeup (hardly a shocking revelation after seeing my photos the last two days) but I did go out and buy the cheapest mascara, eyeliner, and makeup remover I could find.Not saying I did a stellar job, but I was pretty stoked that my first attempt was good enough to go to work in. Key elements of the look included a stiff, black, deep-v top, an eye catching necklace, parted and pulled back hair.
Also! Thanks for the shout out, Blog James Blog! If you’re looking for a stellar way to recap the 22 Bond Films, you definitely need to check him out.
Day two champions that badass women of Bond, many of whom seem to always be wearing black. And not smiling.
It was easy to over-think this one. Xenia’s tight tee and pulled back hair is my part-time job uniform–yawn–and I don’t have any other black tops. Not even a sweater. (Seriously, this fashion adventure is pointing out some major holes in my wardrobe.) I do have black cardigans, but that felt so not bad. And while I would have liked a just-above-the-knee tight black skirt, I don’t have that, either. Hell, my pants didn’t seem to fit as tight as I wanted, and yoga pants are just not Tuesday-in-Corporate-America appropriate. And then there’s the fact that all my blacks are different shades of black…
But then I put on some pants, because pants are practical. A badass wears pants. Maybe not my pants, but pants nonetheless. And cardigans accent my shape just as well as Wai Lin’s gear. So, I ended up here (which I’m okay with):
Oh! And again on the Skyfall news: Adele’s theme was “leaked” today. I’m undecided, but I think it’s falling a little short (but far above Quantum‘s disaster).
Today starts the week-long celebration to Global James Bond Day! As previously noted, I’ll be sporting film-inspired looks all week. Today’s look: Like a Boss. Judi Dench’s M is clean cut, stern, and office-management chic.
Sadly, my high school debate outfits are not in my closet, so I couldn’t pull this look off completely. However, I don’t want every day to be a blur of black, so I decided to go with a colorful blazer. It’s more me, anyway. I’ve been power walking all over the office today. Feels great.
Oh! And in other big-ass Bond news: Adele is totally singing the theme for Skyfall. She’ll release it on Global James Bond Day.
