And I critize the young working woman of today?

Back when I had a day job, lo these 2 years ago, I was quite the curmudgeon about the young women coming into entry level management positions wearing Lulu Lemon yoga pants and a plunging neckline.

But I know of which I speak. Here’s a picture of the kind of outfit I had the nerve to wear to work… I worked for a company that made, you guessed it… filing cabinets. So not exactly a glamor industry. The shot below was taken on a photo shoot for our product catalogue. The photographer had some film (remember film?) left and had me scramble up the wall ‘o cabinets and pose for this shot.

For your amusement, I give you… ’80s Gina. Oh, those shoulder pads!

I miss the '80s!

I miss the ’80s!
