44. What sorts of things do you do, clothing, make-up or hair-wise, to feel professional?
My "profession" is writing and organizing art and music-related shows, so it's more about having clothes that feel like they fit well rather than any sort of stereotypical "professional" appearance.
My profession is, thank God, my actual Self. Is that lucky? I think so.
I like to dress up a bit -- just business casual. I like to look presentable and put together and ready to work. It makes me feel professional.
clean hair, very little eye makeup and a good skirt and blouse - sometimes vintage...
button down shirts that are tailored.
Try to tame my curly hair (a little bit), not dye it pink or blue like I want to. Not do cat eyeliner at the office. Cover my tattoos. And throw a blazer on top of everything to dress it up a bit more, if I'm pushing it in one of those areas.
My profession is art so looking myself reflects my work.
