Today I was reprimanded for wearing jeans. I know the dress code says "no jeans" but I wore them because they are tailored Banana Republic jeans and less ratty than many things I see other people wearing.

-one cat sweatshirt
-one Hawaiian print shirt over a t-shirt that says "OINGO BOINGO"
-pleated khakis in abundance (ew, PLEATED? Have some self-respect!)
-exposed tattoos (supposedly against the dress code)
-skirts WITH white shoes and white socks. I mean, how much less professional (and less attractive) can you really make yourself?
Just my observations.
