WIW : To Resign

Hi Ladies,

I received my formal job offer this morning, and I met with my current manager and submitted my resignation.

I felt Metalicus was the go for this particular occasion (ok I think it's perfect for most occasions).  It is cooling down and our forecast for today was a top of 19, so I got my new Ponte pants out, added my Metalicus Tunic and Metalicus Draped jacket.   The pants are a bit long but I have a soft spot for scrunch - looking at the pics I think I will take them up a little as the scrunch is too much yes?

My manager was lovely and quite suprised I was wanting to move on.  He is a lovey man and someone I really do enjoy working for, so I will miss him (he has only been with us a few months) but otherwise I don't feel there is a lot I will miss.  It's definitely time for change.

Comments, critiques much appreciated.  I do realise it's 'more of the same' but it is 'me' lol.  

xxx Deborah

BTW, I finish up my job next Thursday and have a week off (school holidays) before commencing the new role.

    Looks great, Deborah! I like the lines with the jacket added in #1. I agree on the pants, take them up a bit. But not too much!

  • Dimity replied 5 years ago

    That's the perfect 'resigning in' outfit. Strong, authoritative, no nonsense, but with enough style to say that you're an interesting person and not just a corporate suit. Maybe it's the perfect 'first day' outfit too?
    I envy your cooler temps. Still hovering around 30 degrees here.

    A lovely look. Glad the conversation went well. I know I dread such "talks"!
    And you are looking so slim and streamlined!

  • lyn67 replied 5 years ago

    Wow, Deb, congrats for the new job and all dreaded talks going well!:-) YLF in your drapy blacks (as always) and I surely loved the pictie nr 2. for the rich details.  I sometime wonder, how creative a girl has to be as regarding all those layerings and drapings to satisfy her sweet teeth of fashion, but continue to amaze me, day after day!

  • vesperholly replied 5 years ago

    What a fantastic tunic! I love the arty, drapey drama of it, soothed by a sophisticated black. Congratulations on your new job offer. May it be the beginning of an exciting new chapter in your life.

  • Style Fan replied 5 years ago

    How lovely you look!  I am glad the conversation went well.

  • Deb replied 5 years ago

    Bet you are glad that conversation is done and dusted. Onward and upward Deborah! You are looking lovely as always. And I agree, a little hemming would be better.

  • dakotacheryl replied 5 years ago

    Good luck on the new job Deborah...loved the creative flair to your "good bye" outfit !!

  • Summer replied 5 years ago

    Lovely, Deborah.  Enjoy your break, and good luck with the new job.

  • replied 5 years ago

    Oh, I love seeing you as 'you' Deb ;) You look fabulous as always. Just a smidge is needed off the pants I think. Have a nice week off.

  • gryffin replied 5 years ago

    Congrats. Great outfit - I love the proportions of the jacket, angles and drape. Interesting and flattering. I do have a couple of pairs of pants I wear long but my silhouette is more severe. Because you encorporate such lovely flow into your pieces, I don't think the extra scrunch is needed. Long but slightly less long would be cleaner. Great booties and perfect for the occasion. You need a great bootie for this kind of thing. So glad it went well. Enjoy your break and hope new job is wonderful!

  • kkards replied 5 years ago

    glad it went well. as always, you look fab. love the drapeyness of this. i like scrunch on my pants as well, as you are moving into winter, i'd try this with some winter outfits, and booties, first. 

  • krishnidoux replied 5 years ago

    I love it. To resign or not, I would wear it anytime!

  • Sharon replied 5 years ago

    Yay! Congratulations on the new job and so happy you are moving out of what sounded like a soul-sapping situation.
    Love the outfit! I agree that a little less scrunch would probably be a good counterbalance to the drape of the tunic. You are looking fabulous :)

  • TraceyLiz65 replied 5 years ago

    Congratulations and more of the same is fabulous, so why not?  You have a definite style that works beautifully.  I personally like the added texture of the scrunch..

  • replied 5 years ago

    Congratulations, Deborah! A very powerful yet respectful resignation outfit. And I don't know that I've ever thought about what to wear to resign, how lovely of you to be so considered and thoughtful. And I agree about hemming the pants just enough so the folds stay at the bottom. Love the look as always. I hope you have some fun planned for the school holidays.

  • viva replied 5 years ago

    Congratulations! I love the second picture, which shows how gorgeous and dramatic this outfit is, and how beautifully the drape of it all wraps your figure. You look wonderful.

  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago

    Nice!  I also really appreciate the second overexposed picture to better show the details of your outfit.  It can be so hard to see details in photographs of black outfits.

  • replied 5 years ago

    Thought of you when I saw this !

  • Transcona Shannon replied 5 years ago

    Sooooo happy for you Deborah and this change coming up - I know you're going to do extremely well in your new position :)

    And of course the outfit is smashing - strong, flattering, and stylish.

  • AM replied 5 years ago

    Congrats! Congrats! Congrats!
    This look is strong and has a decisiveness about it. As in, I've decided to move on. Well done! It is a beautiful outfit.

  • trekkiegirl replied 5 years ago

    I think Dimity said it best - "the perfect 'resigning in' outfit. Strong, authoritative, no nonsense,
    but with enough style to say that you're an interesting person and not
    just a corporate suit."

    You look great, and I love the drape of the jacket with the texture of the tunic. Very YOU, but still as interesting as ever :)

  • Dee replied 5 years ago

    Congratulations on the job offer and best of luck in the new position! You look perfect for your resignation day. I really love the look with the jacket. The pants do scrunch a bit, so taking them up is probably not a bad idea.

  • amiable replied 5 years ago

    Terrific outfit, and congratulations!

  • abc replied 5 years ago

    Great outfit, you wear drape like nobody's business.  I love how you can pull off drape yet structure, you are a very keen shopper because you know what works for you and your body.  I'm still learning.  I need to sit in on your master class :)

    Congrats on moving on.  Sometimes we just need a new start.  So happy for you.  Enjoy the week off.

  • Diana replied 5 years ago

    You look great and very chic.  Perfect outfit for moving onward and upward.  Congrats again.

  • Karie replied 5 years ago

    Congratulations on the new job! Your outfit is stunning. The drape of those pieces is exquisite.

  • Thistle replied 5 years ago

    You look strong and amazing. Congratulations on the new job. I am glad that worked out, and yes, sometimes, you just need a change.

  • merwoman replied 5 years ago

    You must be relieved to have 'the talk' over with. Brilliant idea to wear your signature look - beautiful draping and elegant lines. Congratulations on the new position and enjoy your well deserved break!

  • Sal replied 5 years ago

    Exciting all around, so pleased it all worked out in the end.  You look wonderful, the draping of the top is wonderful.

  • Ingunn replied 5 years ago

    You look wonderful indeed. I'm very happy to hear about your new job! Good luck!

  • Firecracker replied 5 years ago

    What a beautiful outfit. The jacket works well over the dress and the pants have just the right narrowness to complete the look. Yes, I think a little less scrunch would be even better, but this is a super fab look.
    Congratulations on your new venture!
