Needed a copy of this on ANY condition to show a friend. This inexpensive, thoroughly used paperback i got from an Amazon listing filled the bill. Just what i wanted.

Format: Paperback
Molloy's original Woman's Dress for Success Book is well written and full of information for women entering the work force in the 1970's and early 80's. It shows what the first professional working women had to go thru to establish themselves in a man's world. But not much of the book is relevant to the year 2000. I hope Molloy pulls up a chair to his computer soon and gives us an edition for the new millenium

Format: Paperback
This book, THE WOMEN'S DRESS FOR SUCCESS BOOK, was published several decades ago. In it, Mr. Malloy advises that businesswomen wear suits and bow blouses. Etc. This is certainly better than wearing hippie clothing, peasant dreses, or torn jeans, etc. (Unless you work at a hippie-inspired music store, an ethnic restaurant, or "fashion" jeans label company, etc.) However, for most women, in most businesses, Mr. Malloy's suggestions are adequate. Just adequate. If you follow them, you will definitely look like a competent businesswomn -- but not someone who will stand out from the crowd, (or in this case, the typing pool). You may not look "blah", but you will look, "bland".

For myself, I look at what Royal women are wearing, via "Royalty" magazine, YouTube.com, and Google Images. Then I try to "pare down" their look to fit my own lifestyle and taste. So --I won't wear very bright colours, (as Royalty must do, because they have to stand WAY out in a crowd), nor will I wear the new, extradinairily "confection" type hats that many Royal ladies are now wearing. And I certainly cannot afford to wear the difficult-to-sew dress patterns that royalty wears. But they do give me hints on how to dress! I WILL, on occasion, wear a hat, small, untrusive, but definitely noticeable -- tactfully taking it off after I enter. The same for my white gloves. My statement here is, I have my standards, but I respect those of others. On "casual Fridays", I do not wear my hat and gloves. (To be honest, though, I must add that I WOULD do these things, if I had a job. Right now I am unemployed...but definitely WOULD follow my own rules, above, (and below), unless instructed to do otherwise by a prospective employer.
I have never wanted to be "one of the crowd"!

Mr.
