Weekend Open Thread

Velveteen High Waist Skinny PantsSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Hmmn: I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many pieces from cool girl brand Frame on sale before. The denim is what most people lurve, but they’ve also got blazers, sweaters, and more. I’m liking these velveteen skinny pants which look like a comfy but stylish choice for the weekend or a casual workday (know your office, though). They were $235, but are now marked to $140; lots of sizes are left as of right now. (I’ll try to do a fuller roundup of the big Nordstrom sale that just started, as well as all the Presidents’ Day sales starting now — please stay tuned!) Velveteen High Waist Skinny Pants

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Ruffle Sleeve Shift Dress

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Ruffle Sleeve Shift DressPresident’s Day sales are already starting, including the big Nordstrom Winter Sale. This dress is new to the sale and while it’s obviously a casual dress, it’s a fun, easy dress that can cross seasons with the help of a little layering (such as tights and a thin, long-sleeved top) during colder months. At 5’4″, everything always hits me much longer than shown on super tall models — so I’d hope it hits me just above my knees. I’d still wear much lower heels than shown here (if not flats), and I’d pair it with a long pendant.  The dress is newly marked to $41 (also available in a fun stripe and a navy — even better for tights!) and has a ton of great reviews. Ruffle Sleeve Shift Dress

Coffee Break: Born Pointy Toe Pump

Butter pump Aztec I’m always a fan of a low pump, and this cute kitten-heeled one from Butter Shoes has such an interesting black and white pattern it’s hard not to love. They’re calling the pattern “Aztec,” which… I don’t see. At first glance I thought it was a very large animal print; at second glance (and third and fourth) it looks like some kind of flora or fauna. The shoes are winning good reviews, available in five colors, and $199. Butter Born Pointy Toe Pump

(I’m trying to remember why I associate Butter Shoes with vegan shoes — if for whatever reason you do as well, do note that these have leather uppers. You can see our last roundup of stylish vegan shoes for the office, though, if you’re on the hunt.)

7 Tips for Women on Avoiding Unwanted Advances During Business Travel

Tips for Women on Avoiding Unwanted Advances During Business TravelHere’s an interesting question for today: Do you often get unwanted attention when traveling for work? What are your best tips for women on avoiding unwanted advances during business travel? Does it happen most often in hotel bars, on the plane, at the airport, or elsewhere? From coworkers, clients — or strangers? Do you ever feel unsafe during those experiences, or are you mostly just annoyed when you’re trying to do some work, eat a meal, or simply get to where you’re going? tips for women on avoiding unwanted advances during business travel

The question of how to avoid being hit on when you’re traveling for work is especially relevant in light of all of the changes happening these days with sexual harassment, office culture, and the #metoo movement. As if flight delays, lost luggage, and jet lag weren’t enough, two in five women say they’ve experienced sexual harassment or unwelcome interactions while traveling, according to a recent survey 

We acknowledge that it’s sad and wrong that there’s even a need for a post called “tips for women on avoiding unwanted advances during business travel” (and that many women feel like they have to change their behavior or appearance to avoid being hit on or harassed while traveling), but unfortunately, that’s the reality that most of us live in. (There also needs to be something to counter the pieces aimed at men with titles like “How to Pick Up Women on Airplanes” and “How to Pick Up Business Women in Hotel Bars.”) I also want to point out that we don’t want to imply that any woman should be blamed for unwanted attention if she doesn’t do the things below — we just thought it would be helpful to share some advice and ask readers for theirs.

Psst: We’ve previously shared business travel tips and tricks and discussed readers’ best self-defense tips, as well as given advice on how to handle a client hitting on you and how to stop a flirtatious boss from hitting on you. You may also want to check out our post on the best personal safety apps for women!
