I have some of those jeans. Love them!

I was checking out a new thrift store a while back and made a heck of a buy. Not one but two jacket systems. One was EB and the other LLBEAN, brand new with the store tags, $8.00 each and the tag price was $179. Bought them both.

Now, I don't know how long it's been since you've seen a catalog but they have really khaki skirts and pants, sweaters and a lot more. Even dresses. With the replacement guaranty, they're a real bargain and professional looking without being too dressy.

Uh, "nice khaki" is what that should say.

All the more reason to look decent, not like you're going out to slop the hogs or are a traveling vet or something. Personally, if someone wants my business (unless you are a jewelry designer or something and just want product space in shops or whatever) I want a professional appearance and persona from that person.

I agree...especially if that business relates to personal care and luxury...which is what I understood when she said "spa"....I'm not going to be convinced that someone cares about luxury and personal care if she doesn't appear to take care of herself and her appearance.

Well we don't have an LLBean anywhere (but I think we can order), and we do have a Land's End (which is in Sears). I still have lots of my older EB, which is great quality, and I have bought lots for my son there over the years. He has moved more into trendy stuff (other than his winter parka), so he doesn't shop much at EB anymore. I haven't been in there for awhile, probably twice in the last 8-10 months because the store is about an hour from where I work or the college, but I am going to check it out this weekend as well as the Land's End.

If the OP is going to be doing this in Branson, there will be quite a few tourists coming in from real cities.
They are so not going to take her seriously if she isnt dressed in a manner appropriate to someone who is offering a luxury service.
Sorry 20years, but if you want to be taken seriously, you HAVE to look the part.

If you don't live in a hot climate, all black might be good. Black pants, black blazer, etc. Nice, fun jewelry.

I agree that.
Black is the most functional color.
Use some shining and dazzling accessories, remember

That's true. Today I am at work at my bf's office, he is in a construction related industry. He is going out for lunch today, so he is wearing a very nice casual dress shirt, khaki's, and the usual accessories--the people he is meeting with will all look the same. I am working in the office and I am wearing a simple skirt (knee length in different shades of small grey and black plaid), a plain black sweater, and a really funky jacket with black suede heels, and a black suede and leather purse. I've also added some jewellery for fun. I feel great and I feel very comfortable with what I am wearing. There are tradespeople and professional folks coming and going around me. I don't feel underdressed or overdressed.
