Good luck with your date, ZK! I'm wearing black today too! Black pants and a black ruched (or shirred, not sure how to describe it) top, black Liz Claiborne mules, and a black/off-white checked jacket with an unusual finish on the edges...a double row of unraveled threads which make fringes, and a narrow black border with two rows of off-white stitching. My only jewelry is a white ivory mandala on a silver chain. Oh, I lied, I'm also wearing a black belt with white stitching and an oval silver buckle with a gold bull and rider on it!!

Hi, Front-Ranger!  First time I've seen this thread, so I haven't caught up on the whole thing.  I'm just the opposite, don't care much about fashion and do wear whatever I like.  I'm also wearing a black shirt and black pants, socks and boots, and I guess I could leave the ,,,, ahem... undergarment descriptions out of this... ( :laugh: No, I can't!  Black at top, spring green at bottom!)  My shirt is a uniform shirt, since I just returned from work.  It has a company logo in white, and has my lovely name tag below the logo.  My name tag states that I am a 'Portrait Specialist', but that's stretching things a bit.  I'm also wearing a wristband that is black leather and has what looks like a small metal belt buckle like the one Jack wore (with a horse on it).  It also has two metal stars in circles, and the actual buckle side of it is the typical western metal-tipped belt and buckle.  NOW....  here's my problem...  >:( ;D   I am very happy to wear my black uniform since I only own black pants and black jackets to go with the shirts.  TODAY at work we were issued navy blue shirts and were told we have to wear khaki pants with them!  >shudder<   On someone else, maybe...  but me?!?  NO-O-O!!!!  I can't imagine putting my giant behind into a wide expanse of khaki, it would be blinding to all onlookers including myself.  What to do?!  Any advice?  I managed to make it through all of our other colors of shirts, one color per year, (so far, black, burgundy and white, with my  black pants.  I don't want khaki pants!!!!    :-\ >:( :'(   Hel-l-l-p!

Melinda, do they make you tuck the shirts in?  If not, maybe you could wear your shirt not tucked in, so it would kind of skim over your hips.  Or if they have shirts for tall men or something (long-torso) and you wore that untucked... even better.  Or could you wear a khaki skirt?

Or do you have enough longevity with the co. to ask if you can wear black pants anyway?  (If the logos are on the shirts, who cares?)  You just want to look the best you can; from your bosses' perspective, that should be a good thing, right?

Yeah, I hate it when they make uniforms totally unflattering like, what are they thinking?

Melinda, you are Jack's Pants, and don't you forget it.  No khaki can take that away from you.  :-*

Anyway, today I'm wearking black pants, black shoes and a tourquoise blue shirt with a black tank top underneath because the shirt has a very deep v-neck.  And!!  I'm wearing a special moon necklace given to me by Sister Mod during our recent visit.

Tomorrow I'm going to wear my new cowgirl boots!!  I'm already excited (I didn't wear them today because it's pouring rain out).  Lee has a fun picture of me trying them on in Cheyenne that we'll post at some point.

It is presently 8.15 on a rainy, winter morning in Sydney. I am sitting at my desk at work in a black, Roger David, two-piece business suit, Prussian blue cotton business shirt and a Hardy Amies silk tie with a black, blue and grey pattern. Black shoes, socks and boxers. I wear a variation on this theme to work every day.   8)

Wow Kerry! You're dressed to the nines, aren't you? I'll bet you look real nice. :D


I'm wearing an aqua blue Ralph Lauren Polo shirt, dark blue Lee jeans, and I'm running around in my socks! No shoes right now. lol

Today, here in the UK, it is quite sunny and warm, and at work, so I'm wearing black trousers, black shoes, grey socks, white shirt with small grey stars on them.  (the white shirt makes my slight tan look better)  ;D
