For 14 years I worked as Office Manager at a large design company based in Wakefield. I loved it there [for the most part] but like most good things unfortunately it came to a an end
I suppose during my time there I liked to look the part. I used to love getting ready for work ; smart dresses, trouser suits, neat hair and immaculate makeup . Stilettos; the higher the better [ this was my pre- dodgy foot era ]. Power dressing when you didn’t feel that confident / know what you were doing was the quickest way to fool everybody into thinking you were and that you did !
There was just one thing I always felt was missing. I always hankered after a brief case one that was both stylish and practical.
I never got one. I used to juggle various bags often forgetting where I’d put things, or leaving essentials at home! Having to carry my laptop in a separate bag [usually of the plastic kind!]
Fast forward a few years …
