Are You Wearing Astronaut Pants?


Galaxy Suit: Topshop

I recently had a dilemma: how do I present myself in a more “professional” photograph and not lose my identity? When you browse through your connections on LinkedIn, there is a sea of black and gray blazers, but realistically, that’s not who many of those people intrinsically are.  I understand that there is a protocol for professional presentation, especially over the internet, but I’m also a firm believer in that some rules are just plain ol’ stupid.

So what is the most logical thing I could have done in order to present myself in a “professional” way and not completely abandon myself in the process? I bought a space suit. Yeah, what you’re probably thinking right now is exactly what my mom said: “are you ____ kidding me?” No, mom. I’m not kidding you.  So what was I thinking when I purchased this bad boy? I was thinking about all the one-liner “are you wearing astronaut pants?” jokes, how I’m already somewhat of a space case, and the fact that I have nebula’s printed all over me.

Now let me explain the photo above. I convinced (by “convinced”, what I’m actually trying to say, is that  it was by her own free will) my very talented friend Kelci McIntosh, to take some photos of me. I went into her room and threw my things everywhere (because I’m just THAT much of a diva). So, half of this mess is mine, actually all of that mess is mine.

So, do you feel that you can translate your personality online and still maintain professionalism?

P.P.S.- Psych. I bought this suit a few months ago, so they are no longer there, BUT, you can always start your galaxy wardrobe out with this Galaxy Bustier Bra Top from Showboat Clothing!
