After attending the MARCOM Conference last week I was inspired.
Not only was I inspired to get into work and try out some of the things I had learned (including Scott Stratten's mantra "be awesome") but I was so inspired by the fashions that I decided to try something completely out of my comfort zone.

Throughout the two days as I watched the fabulous ladies walking around the Ottawa Convention Centre (and Rideau Centre when I popped out to do a bit of window shopping) I was inspired to give my work wardrobe a bit of an overhaul. I'm no slouch when it comes to business casual; however, I have been known to sabotage an outfit by throwing on a cardigan or a less fabulous (read: boring and safe) pair of shoes.
But that ends now.
Not only did this ensemble feature no cardigan, but it garnered compliments from co-workers, and satisfied my desire to be more Anna Wintour and less Liz Lemon when it comes to dressing.
More Wintour, less Lemon. That's my new mantra.
But, just because I'm moving away from becoming Liz Lemon doesn't mean I don't still want to be Tina Fey. I mean, have you read Bossypants?!
