She’s the toughest negotiator in the office, and nobody can quite believe it! She managed to settle one of the toughest ongoing negotiations her company had on their docket back in January, and was made chief negotiator in recognition. Her co-workers really didn’t “get it” when she was sent to represent their firm at a weekend retreat to discuss negotiating techniques…
She takes her style inspirations from this painting – it doesn’t seem particularly intimidating or overbearing, does it?

“OR. They might be planning for more negotiations. I just can’t pin their rep down with a clear agenda…”
“Can you handle it?”
Of course she can… she’s adept at adjusting to whatever the client wants…
Her travel outfit could go directly into meetings, if necessary…
(Note that her scarf is studded…)
(The scarf she packs has bees on it – there’s always a bit of a sting somewhere…)
And she packs pieces that can be worn either casually or in a more businesslike style. She arranges everything on her bed before she packs, and can clearly see the possibilities inherent in these few garments:
She’s only supposed to be with this band of crazies for 2 nights, and she can see at least 3 casual outfits and 3 business outfits:
Her fondness for skirts and dresses serves her well when she has to be this adaptable!
Have you ever received one of these invitations that leaves you without a CLUE of what to wear? I’ve been both over- and under-dressed in my life! Happily, what you’re wearing isn’t the most important thing about you, eh?
