Conference Workshops + The Pitch

Posted by AJ Blythe at Tuesday, May 05, 2009
Now I imagine that to portray a professional image at the conference workshops the dress code would be office wear.

But what defines office wear these days?
Checking out the websites of a number of different retailers I found that in many cases their office wear lines included denim jeans. Are these now considered aprropriate for the office? Are jeans dressier then they used to be? Or have office standards dropped?

Ok, to be honest, I don't really care why, just please tell me they'll be ok to wear. Yep, you guessed it - I have jeans!

The outfits depicted here are the ones in the latest catalogues from Myer, David Jones, Katies and Suzanne Grae.

The Pitch
Hmmm. The Pitch. Just the words alone are enough to make me tremble in my boots. Let alone worrying about what to wear!

The image I want to project: professional, competent, organised, relaxed - as I will probably be none of these things (think nervous, sweating, fumbling and bumbling) I need my clothing to try and portray the image for me.

My gosh. What hope do I have at successfully pitching?

Again I have consulted the online catalogues of many of my local fashion stores and gained an insight into what's hot and what's not. You'll never guess where I fit in!

Below are just a sample of some of the models I viewed dressed in what any up and coming author whould be wearing to The Pitch.

What are you wearing?

The last few pics show some nice ensembles. Simple skirt or slacks and a nice top will be fine, along with a nice jacket.

Maybe you should go into Portmans who seem to specialise in 'corporate wear' and get them to help you put some ensembles together. You don't have to buy them, just get an idea of what colours/styles you should wear for your body shape.

Oh, and just a tip, get a decent bra to go with those outfits - nothing worse than a crappy bra with a lovely outfit (doesn't do you justice).

Remind me NEVER to let you see my bras, lol. They seriously need to be replaced.

Hadn't thought of Portmans, dunno why, used to buy heaps from them. Good idea, thanks Mon.
