We know, for a second, we thought it was summer vacation too, but with Memorial Day weekend gone and yet another work week winding in front of us, we’ve got to get our mind back in business mode. Instead of dwelling over lazy days long gone, why not re-energize your working girl spirit with some inspiration from TV’s most fabulous career girls? From iconic independent women like The Mary Tyler Moore Show’s Mary Richards to the ballsy ad babes from Mad Men, these smart, stylish and successful ladies will give you just the boost you need to conquer that cubicle once again!
Turn the world on with your smile by taking a page from one of TV’s original career girls, Ms. Mary Richards from The Mary Tyler Moore Show. No, don’t joyfully fling your beret in the air (frankly, you’ll look a bit nuts), but you can steal some of TV’s first ever non-married, independent working woman’s signature sweetness and that Lou Grant-approved spunk! Working at the TV station WJM, Mary works her way up to producer by the show’s end and looks fabulous every step of the way, in ’70s-style double-breasted coats, knee-high boots and, of course, her blue tam!
