I just finished watching the Starz series The Girlfriend Experience which seems loosely based on the 2009 film of the same name. I saw the movie a while ago and don’t remember it exactly, but the tv program was much more of ride.
It was probably not the show’s intention to make one want to emulate Riley Keough’s Christine Reade, but it was impossible for me not to notice Christine’s wardrobe. As a law student interning at a firm and becoming an escort, her style is very minimalistic yet commanding. I’ve become obsessed with this kind of look that could be worn at the office, but looks just as amazing for cocktails.
Unfortunately, I don’t have any pencil skirts or even know if I can pull them off, but I’m certainly now inspired to try.
What I just happen to have in my closet isn’t as fitted as what Christine has, but I don’t know if I would be as comfortable! It’s also probably more affordable. Everything was probably under $20 except for the bag which was from a site called Twice which was like a name brand version of ThredUp. They used to let you trade gift cards for credit. I miss that site.
Do you get to use a lot of office wear? Do you like the simple staples or are they too boring?
