Ladies, it is time to step up your professional look. Don’t worry about your skills, it is all about the look. This book has a bunch of quizzes and tips to make you look your best. Lucky for you, there is advice to minimize your chest, which can obviously cause major problems. (Eyes up here!) Next you need to work on hair, your voice, and your clothing choices. Finally, when you don’t even recognize yourself, that’s when you know you’ve made it!

  1. I have always had long hair, and it never was an issue in any job I’ve had. Who came up with this horsehockey anyway???

  2. I’ve been in the workplace for a few decades, but I don’t ever recall a time when your stripey bathrobe was considered professional attire.

  3. In the “shoulder length hair” advice, I’m pretty sure they recommended a mullet. So professional.

  4. Isn’t this what Wardrobe used to select clothing for Phyllis on “The Office”? And maybe Angela as well?

  5. The clothing illustrations look as if they stepped off a Butterick’s pattern envelope!

  6. Oh, and I forgot to note that if I had to change my stockings and my blouse to go from day to evening, it would be just as easy to put on a whole new outfit. And who can see that someone has a camisole instead of a full blouse, if she keeps the jacket on?
