L'Oiseau Forestier by Max Ernst - Revisiting for Spring 2018


Back in January, her jealous co-workers were fuming because she never wears blazers, not pantsuits...

They have no clue. This is her style inspiration:

From this, she developed her style guidelines and color palette:

Back then, when she was going out of town to lead some negotiations, this was her wardrobe - not what one might expect from someone who is supposed to be hard-bitten with brass... knuckles...

Well, she's not going to give away all of her secrets! But the participants will find it worthwhile...

The first thing she might be able to teach someone is how to take your opposition by surprise...

    2. I agree. The subtle "dangerous" theme speaks volumes about this woman's confidence. Definitely one of my favorite heroines.
