Exercise Clothes in Nice Restaurants?
Hello Daily Connoisseurs,
Today I have a nice, juicy chat video for you as a bonus this week. I love doing these videos because I feel as though we are actually chatting together and we can continue the discussion in the comment section and on social media.
These days it is rare when my family and I go to a nice restaurant, so when we do go, our expectations are high. We went to a fancy Sunday lunch last weekend and this video discusses my thoughts and observations about those who wear exercise clothes to nice restaurants. I'm sure you can imagine what my stance on this is!
Please check out my bonus video this week for the full discussion. If you are unable to see the video above, click here, look in the sidebar of this blog, or check out my YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/TheDailyConnoisseur
And please let me know what you think. Do you think there is a direct correlation between dress and behavior? Have you noticed that people are no longer dressing up (or even appropriately) for nice occasions such as nice dinners or the theatre? Do you feel that this brings down the tone of the whole engagement? What are your thoughts? Don't be shy! Let us know in the comment section below and you could be picked as the comment of the week.
I have written an article for Dress for Success on Poise in the Workplace.
I am featured in Real Simple Magazine in an article called, 5 Ways to Handle an Awkward Conversation.
Polish Your Poise with Madame Chic: Lessons in Everyday Elegance comes out next Tuesday! I am so excited for you to read this latest installment in the Madame Chic series.
I will be speaking and signing books at Pages Bookstore in Manhattan Beach, Thursday, October 29th 7pm. I hope to see you there! I will be signing extra copies of Polish Your Poise with Madame Chic at Pages and they will have these copies available to sell after the event.
Question of the Week
I myself am struggling with a new change in my life: I took a job in a city about 20 minutes farther than I currently drive to work, so will be taking transit into the city each day now, instead of driving. I am looking forward to time to be able to read to and from work. My only concern though is footwear & purses. I will be walking probably 8-9 blocks per day so will be in search of appropriate winter footwear for Western Washington (it's very wet here during fall/winter). Do you have any suggestions or tips for incorporating chic looks along with form/function? Obviously heels are out for safety & sanity reasons. I would love to hear your input on this subject!
Congratulations on your new job Candice! My advice for you is to wear an all-weather boot. Something comfortable to walk in and able to withstand the elements. If appropriate, you can keep a pair of chic flat shoes or heels in your office and change into them once inside. If not, many flat boots are very attractive and will look good with most outfits. Good luck!
