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.
