In preparing for this conference, I typically go to the mall and shop until I drop. This year, we are concentrating our extra funds on paying off my school loan and other credit card debt that I have so I will be heading to my closets to shop for clothes.
I plan to pack staples; classic pieces that do not go out of style. I want to look professional yet feel comfortable. A classic black dress looks great alone, with some jewels, or a scarf. I could also wear a blazer or cardigan over this black dress and accessorize with a necklace, bracelets, and black heels for a sophisticated look.

It is also important to pack a carry all bag or tote of some kind that is big enough to carry your essentials but does not look like a duffel bag.
Often times I forget one very important thing. Business cards. Every year I promise that I will not forget business cards and every year I end up breaking that promise. This year, I have them already stashed in my purse.
What do you do to get ready for a big work event?
