dressing for success

How does an ad broad maintain self esteem in conference rooms peopled with the impossibly young and sculpted? This morning, scrambling for something to wear, I pulled down a lovely cashmere ensemble given to me by a friend whose mom passed away leaving a wardrobe too small to fit her. All day, 30-somethings complimented me on the outfit, asking where did I get it? Of course, I didn't let on that I'd shopped the closet of a deceased octogenarian.

Other than your blog is beautifully written, evolking the whole ethos of the various componets of 'advertising', it occurs to me that no matter how things change, they remain the same, EXCEPT the cast of characters are younger.

Having spent almost 20 years in account management at almost the best agencies on the planet, your perspective of having lived a 'life' between stints in the 'game' is totally refreshing and, oh so true! Thanks for doing this--maybe a book will come from it!

I await your next posting with great anticipation!
