You’re Fired! Pink Tartan green sleeveless anorak

Pink Tartan Green Sleeveless AnorakYou’re fired! And for once it’s not because your outfit is revealing, but because you look like a fishing guide. I mean, seriously… take a look in the mirror.

Obviously I’m not a fashionista because I can’t imagine pairing this hunter green sleeveless anorak from Pink Tartan with a skirt and a button-down shirt.

You’re Fired! Express summer tease

Express-Summer-Tease

Why, yes, I always hold my handbag in front of my skirt -- in case my lady business shows.

There was a time when faux leather snakeskin rocker-chic skinny pants passed as high-fashion in my book. Could there possibly be any more adjectives to describe the tragedy that is tight snakeskin pants?

Anyway, when trashy pant purchasing was my game, Express was my dealer of choice. While they do have some respectable work-worthy pants (The Editor Pant is a classic), they’ve always had a crazy selection of club wear posing as work wear.

And so I present: the “summer tease” category from Express. Really? REALLY?

“Never too short. Never too sexy.” proclaims the Studio Stretch Mini Skirt. Let’s add never too slutty and never too fired to the list, shall we?

You’re Fired! 7 for all Mankind Jet Ruffle Tunic

7 for all Mankind Jet Ruffle Tunic7 for all Mankind Jet Ruffle Tunic

Ah, the ultimate question: shirt or dress? Thankfully they made it easy for us by calling it out as a tunic and wearing it over gray faux denim leggings. Classy.

It’s time for another installment of You’re Fired – a focus on work-inappropriate fashion.

While I don’t think it was intended as a work power outfit, the Jet Ruffle Tunic by 7 for all Mankind has me in fits of giggles. I can’t imagine this looking good. On anyone.

I think you have a good chance of replicating this design with a large black garbage bag and some pinking shears. Yikes.

You’re Fired! Theory Ansue Ruffle Vest

 Theory "Ansue" Ivory Silk Cropped Ruffle Top As much as I love finding things to wear to work, I also chuckle endlessly at the crazy crap that people try to pass off as fashion or “work appropriate.”

You’re Fired will focus on work-inappropriate fashion.

Theory has this lovely tiered vest on Rue La La today – the “Ansue” Ivory Silk Cropped Ruffle Top. You can get it for a mere $129, which is going to seem like a lot more when you’ve lost your job for showing off your bare chest. Ah, good deals for the workin’ girl.
