Q: I have an edgier style/personality, always have and always will, but I work in a really really conservative office. I constantly feel like I’m leading a double life, but I need to pay the bills. Should I just say screw it and “do me”? IDK, I just need advice!

A: Personally, I’ve always had the mindset of, “If they don’t hire me based on the fact that I have tattoos, then I don’t want to work for a company like that anyways” and would pass. But living in California, I understand that paying your bills is important and unfortunately they are high ... I think there are definite ways to please both parties. Tights become your best friend, as well as blazers and midi skirts. There’s always a way to spice up your outfit no matter what the limitations are. Who doesn't love a challenge? I say, do yourself, always. But remember, any place that forces you to not be yourself is not worth your time and needs to get that stick outta their ass. ;)
