One of the perks of Thanksgiving weekend is the TV marathon that allows you to catch up on old shows and discover new ones. During this weekend, I discovered what may be one of the best TV shows ever – at least for a political junkie like me. It’s called Borgen, or Government, and is a Danish series imagining the career of the first woman prime minister. It’s available on the LinkTV website for two weeks only, so here’s your chance. Both Season One and Season Two are available. I would love to take the fictional prime minister Birgitte Nystrom shopping, though. She only wears black and dark blue power suits with solid color blouses and sensible shoes. I would love to see her in some color and prints. She could carry off this bold, body-con dress from Kunglers, but would never even try it on.
It’s 2012, women do not have to dress clothing that mimics menswear to be taken seriously. In fact, a bold print like this says the person wearing it has confidence and personal style. She can work hard and succeed without hiding her gender in gabardine.
My accessories are simple, some earrings and bracelets from Maxi Gossamer in orange and purple and a pair of lilac pumps from Baiastice. Anything fussy would distract from the gorgeous cut of the dress and its boy-con shape.
My hair is the sensible and feminine Electra from Lelutka and the make up is subtle. avoiding the bold colors that would be too overwhelming for work.
