Week in Review, IV

It's my last day at work - after three years, I've decided to move on to greener pastures. Or maybe not so greener pastures, but I'll soon find out and believe me: I'll blog along the way.

Crazy bad dresser co-worker didn't fail me this week. It's like my going away present.

Here goes:

Monday - olive skirt suit. The skirt was really long and it had a slit that ran from her ankle to her upper thigh. However, she wore it with the slit in the front and the slit met her camel toe area. The jacket was about two sizes too big on her as well, and has about five usable pockets on it. I am not kidding anyone about this. She also wore black boots up to her knees. And the outfit was topped off with a fur coat.

Tuesday - the infamous yellow linen pants. They had deep pleats in the front and a very high waist. On top, she was wearing a black bra, a white Abercrombie tank top and an off-white shaggy sweater from the 70's. It was the kind of sweater that comes with a free bowl of soup. She was also wearing her black loafers with black men's trouser socks, so if she crossed her legs, you could see her pale legs between the bottom of the linen pants and the top of the socks.

Wednesday - she was out. So no outfit.

Thursday - it was meeting day, so we got treated to another suit. Today, she wore a navy blue skirt suit. Again, it was a long skirt. The jacket had a corset-type stitching on the back. The skirt had this on the front as well. Underneath, she wore a grey top. For shoes, she was wearing black patent leather platforms and black pantyhose or tights. In the hair, she wore an electric blue scrunchie. It was completely hideous. Today was a treat because we were blessed with the fur coat again.

Friday - today is the best day of all. It's like a going away present for me. She is wearing dark brown distressed leather pants. Now, they aren't typical leather pants; these are faded in the butt area. She is wearing a white button down shirt with a brown suede shirt over it. The edges of the suede shirt are scalloped. She is also wearing black boots with a high heel. I'm not sure what the best part of this outfit is, but the makeup that accompanies it is amazing. She looks like she is going to be visiting a brothel (or a Halloween party) after work. Her eyes are dressed with navy eyeshadow and loads of eyeliner and mascara. It's very racoony.

Now, I don't think I have ever mentioned this before, but I work in the inner-city. It's not common to see people dressed in leather or fur, so crazy bad dresser co-worker was trying to convince the rest of the staff that her fur coat was really fake. She hasn't mentioned her pants being pleather, but the day is still long and we have many unspoken conversations to go.

I love your co-worker!!! For my own selfish reasons, I wish you would stay so I could get to know her a little better.

Anywho, enjoy your last day. It's always a nice feeling, isn't it?

Amy - I have enough material about crazy bad co-worker to last me a few months of blogging! And I have a source that will let me know of crazy outfits. So I am sure we will still get glimpses of her craziness.

I am enjoying my last day. So far, I've gone to lunch, gotten a gift in a little blue box, and am awaiting drinks in an hour!

Tiffany blue, I hope!
