What to Wear to the Office: Fashion Publicist Edition with the VIP Manager of Starworks

Talk about a bowse...Lacey Lamphere, the VIP Relations Manager of Starworks is busy making power moves day-in and day-out, and of course, all while looking ultra femme.

Lamphere ensures that A-List celebs wear her clients' gowns and jewels on the red carpet—she masters the delicate balance of showroom visits, fittings, emails and securing press. With that said, does it really surprise you that she accomplishes this while maintaining her enviable girl-on-the-go style? No, of course not. That's why we are giving you an exclusive look at what she's wearing to work at one of LA's most stylish offices. Take her sartorial lead and follow her rules for looking oh-so office chic.

So what does she wear to the office?

How to Dress for the Office According to Lacey:

1.       Respect office dress code and culture

You want to express your individuality and personal style, but you also have to be professional—obviously no one wants to get called into HR!

2.       Function first, cuteness second

The public sees street style shots of fashion people and probably think we all wear crazy outfits to the office every day, but everyone comes to work to do a job, not to be on display. When we moved into our new office, we all wore comfy pants and flats every day so we could haul boxes and wield power tools (yes, we installed those shelves ourselves)!

3.       Don’t plan ahead

This may not sound like the wisest advice, but I like to wait until it’s time to get dressed in the morning to pick out my outfit. You never know what kind of mood you will be in, so it’s best to go with what you feel in the moment rather than plan the night before. As long as you’re in the habit of keeping your closet organized, it should be easy to throw on whatever makes you feel great.

4.       Wear something that can easily transition from day to night

It doesn’t have to be dressy, it just has to make you feel good enough to accept any last minute invitations. If you feel haggard, you will decline and have FOMO.

5.       Be yourself!
The most cliché advice in the world is cliché for a reason—it’s true! If you wear what makes you feel confident, comfortable, and beautiful, you will bring out the best version of yourself, and you’ll shine at work and in the rest of your life.

Get Lacey's Look: 1) Pair a structured pencil skirt with a sheer loose-fitting blouse. 2) Layer the paring with a tailored jacket. 3) Finish the look with an embellished belt, sentimental jewelry and chic pumps.

Don't forget! It's all about neutrals - black, white and tan. Get it? Got it? Good.

Lacey is wearing a Victoria Beckham top, Ann Taylor jacket and ASOS skirt.

RSP: Wake Up Call! What are you drinking in the am?
Lacey: Starbucks Grande drip with a little soy

RSP: Three Go-To Spots After Work 
Lacey: It varies, but if I had to pick… I love outdoor seating on West 3rd Street so Churchill, and I love French fries and butterflies so Bar Marmont. But lately my friends and I pressure each other to go to Pop Physique after work-- it’s hands-down the best workout, and then you can read magazines and chat in the lobby afterwards!

RSP: Drink of Choice
Lacey: Champagne, always.

RSP: We are right there with you on your classic aesthetic and the champagne. Good taste, Lacey, good taste.
All About the Details! ASOS and vintage bracelets, engraved signet ring given to her dad by my mom when they were 19 years old, Tiffany & Co. ring from her parents for (what else?) high school graduation and lastly a diamond ring that belonged to her mom.

Ummm, we still can't get over the engraved signet ring gifted to Lacey's mom from her dad. Precious.

Bisous ♥
