Poor taste? What is that?

Posted on / by GlossyTimes

When meeting a blogger the other day, I discussed something with my friends afterwards:  What is considered poor taste? You might get your interior right, your hair  and also your wardrobe, but when saying something COMPLETELY inappropriate- it ruins EVERYTHING. For example: when knowing somebody really not well, you might not want to approach somebody with the question: “How can you afford your Chanel bags? You don’t earn much, so do you save up? Do you live in a crappy flat or do you skip your holidays?” That happened.  For real.

It is called the SPIEL. When two people meet, you gradually try to understand how the other person ticks. Softly. You never push too hard. Even with your closest friends I would advice to keep a healthy distance when it comes to money. It is a fine line between being entertaining and interesting and between being annoying and judgmental.

And if you really want to make an elegant appearance, you write a note. Ideally on real paper. And with hand. On Huber & Lerner stationary. Of course.

Here you have a quick fix of what my office looks today. We have a client coming today, so I am wearing heels- Jil Sander, skirt with leather bow- Burberry, shirt- something and that’s it. A very simple look.

And yes, that is the office. And yes, thats our view. And yes, I know, its quite sexy.

Stay elegant,

B.

    There’s some serious photoshop FAIL going on there!

      Trust me, if I would REALLY photoshop it the way I want it, I would add hair, make up and a lot of other stuff. This is a 5 minutes project as we are busy with the company and not with pretty blog pics. Sorry to disappoint you.

        So why are the borders in the outfit pic not straight then?

        Please read my comment carefully. I never denied photoshop. I said, that is a minor tweak and not really professional photoshopping as we don’t have the time to come up with perfect editorial pics. And besides, I am NOT the ideal candidate for that. I am not a model. If I would have the time and interest I could photoshop perfect pics like most other bloggers do it. Sorry to disappoint you.

        How about not photoshopping at all?

        We don’t do many pics. Opposite to other bloggers. So if there is just ONE pic to choose and the angle is VERY unflattering and I don’t look myself at all, we will correct it a bit. We don’t have an ENTIRE day like others to devote to the blog, so we need to work with minimum effort and max output….Hope you understand.

    The SPIEL? I would rather call it bad manners (very euphemistically called…).

    Wundervolles Office! Ich würde gerne mehr sehen! Und du siehst wieder fantastisch aus!
    Manche Leute haben einfach kein Gefühl dafür, wie man mit anderen umgehen sollte. Wie sagt man: Geld, Politik und Religion sind keine Gesprächsthemen, sondern Privatsache!
