I’m always the one to cut our conversations short a…Read More

My boss told me on two separate occasions that I should cut my hair or wear it up because I would look more professional. I have slightly longer than shoulder length hair, so after the second comment I told him that I refuse to cut my hair short to look more like a man and that I am disappointed that the…Read More

    I see that pastels are in this spring, but is a pastel suit too much and what shirt do I wear under it?
