It's your first day of work at a spankin' new job and you want to impress everyone with your fashionable ways. What should you wear? You don't want to look like you tried too hard, but you also don't want to come off looking like a slop.
We've all been in this situation, so I asked you: What would the perfect first day of work ensemble be? After all, first impressions leave a lasting memory.
Let's see what you all came up with!

Two bohemian style setters and one Myne ikat skirt. Night and day. Rachel earned much praise for her festive look while barhopping last week, and Kate played volleyball and hung out beachside in hers. I have to say the skirt works for both occasions. So the burning question is, do you like Bilson's dressed up look or Kate's way dressed down look better?

For the first time in this season of Project Runway, I completely disagree with the judges' decision. Sorry, Nina! The challenge was to create a day-to-night look for Brooke Shields's character on Lipstick Jungle — really cool. Sophisticated, bohemian, and sharp was what I envisioned. Seeing the team dynamics is always entertaining, but the results were polarizing. After the models walked, I knew who the bottom and top looks were. Spoiler on its way . . .
I did not expect Kelli to get sent home for an overly-sexy look while Blayne stayed for his tousled styling and gray Bermuda shorts; after Heidi said it looked like someone who had gotten dressed in the dark without a mirror, I thought the decision was made. So yeah, I totally thought Blayne should have gotten the ax. Maybe I'm alone here, you tell me?
Lake Bell was red hot last night at the premiere of In Search of a Midnight Kiss in LA. Red can be overtly sexy, but I like how Lake kept her look tasteful in a slim skirt and silk blouse. Her monochrome, with a punch of blue, silhouette was topped off with stellar suede accessories. Now that's what I call red hot.
Dying to go to New York Fashion Week next month? Here's your chance. I must preface, my mom did this one year while I was working and I hung out with her in the VIP Skybox — it was oh so Fab.
