This week I had one of the key presentations of the year. One of those where I am the only woman in the board room and there are a few CEOs of mega corporations and Chairmen around the table. France or Italy are different, but in Germany you can feel that the pant suit for women seems almost compulsory in business circles.
This time round no pant suit, no dark colors, no thanks.
I picked a Eur 49,99 Zara off-white dress in Bloomsbury print, paired with black mat tights, 10cm black pumps (no platform, please), and a green Zara necklace I bought in the sales for Eur 3,99. A black Boss Woman jacket to balance out my copper hair and fertig.
Sometimes you have to dare and just be yourself. Of course before getting in, I got into my cloud of 4711. On top of rock-solid preparation, the 4711 is my zen touch for managing the question time. And of course, everything went very well.
