Sometimes I wonder if my coworkers can tell that every time I see them I’m taking mental notes. I do a quick up-and-down scan (hopefully somewhat discreet) before proverbially scribbling down a brief description of what they are wearing followed by a string of capital letters: RECREATE IMMEDIATELY. It’s shameless, I know, but that’s what happens when you’re surrounded by people who convince you that half-zips are the staple of the moment or that a green pantsuit is best paired with a cargo jacket or that a fall menocore look is only as good as the seasonally inappropriate crystal-encrusted sandals you wear it with. At any rate, Office Apropos is a great excuse for me to ogle jubilantly and uninterrupted. I don’t even have to take notes because the slideshow does it for me (and you), so put down your figurative #2 pencil and give it a click-through.
