Fashion and the Working Gal
Many career gals feel they have discharged their duty to beauty by arriving at the office fresh and attractive. What happens to their appearance in the course of the day's work is not their responsibility, they feel. Your job may involve meeting a changing public who, seeing you for only a frazzled moment, don't realize you looked better when you punched the morning time-clock. Or perhaps only your boss and a handful of fellow employees are subjected each day to watching the steady downward plunge of your beauty barometer. In either case, it's a mistake.
