We're NOT Going Clubbing in Uzbekistan

I'm a people person, and really like to take a few minutes now and then to just watch. It's just fascinating to be around folks who don't think you're really paying attention.

My office is quite diverse, which is a wonderful thing. There are roughly 350 of us crammed into two floors of our building.

Lately, I've noticed this one clique of ladies. From what I understand, they all originally came from the same region of Uzbekistan. As this clique has formed... they all seem to be prodding each other to wear some pretty outlandish stuff.

Today featured (names changed to protect the not-so-innocent):
"Sourpuss"- wearing black tights (I'm fairly certain that she thought they were leggings...with um, feet), a gold lame blouse and an orange bra. Really, I shouldn't know what color bra you have on!!
"Red" - wearing the shortest skirt I've ever seen, a vintage Doors t-shirt, leg warmers, and sandals WITH SOCKS!
"Bubbles" - sporting an all white ensemble; stilettos, painted on jeans, bustier and cropped jean jacket.
"Shades" - a bedazzled pair of black dress pants and a see through purple top.

Yeah, I should also mention that these ladies are all in their 40's and have taken to 1980's big hair as part of their new look too. While our office doesn't have a real rigid dress code...people also need to realize that we're part of a Fortune 25 company. It's not professional (by ANY stretch of the imagination), but it's FUN TO WATCH!!

  2. That sounds interesting!

    At least you have high cover if you want to wear something a little daring to work - nobody would even notice.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. OMG, are they going straight to their "night job" from the office?! LOL! Just stopped by to say thanks for entering my Support the Troops giveaway and for following! I’ll be drawing two winners on Tuesday. Hope you’re one of them!
