We at Directrice Global Industries Limited* are all about scientific improvement and growth. But how to improve and grow if you can’t remember where you started?
That’s not a trick question. You can’t! And thus, our annual look-back is not simply a content-stretching maneuver designed to temporarily satiate content-gobblers. Nay, it is a teaching tool for us and you.
Get comfy and let the learning (or re-learning) begin!
Since one theme of the year was Better Living Through Better Accessorizing, it seems right to start with the six best accessory posts.
As I sift through the year’s entries, I must reflect on what makes some better than others. I like almost all of them. My mother loves all of them. For our year-end list in 2019, I’ve selected the following Business Casual posts because I think they show an interesting silhouette or combination . . . something a little out of the common run.
And here are the best Casual posts, selected because they illustrate how a small idea (an accessory, alteration, or unexpected pairing) can make something good great. Except the last post, which was selected because that tattered denim shirt is awesome.
Reflecting on the year’s end, and five years of blogging, I will extend this invitation: It is incumbent upon all of us to expand the Canon of Business Casual and to shape the workplace, more broadly, to reflect our values, achieve our goals, and meet our needs. Here’s to 2020! Let’s make it a great year.
Please share your resolutions with The Directorate. If they are small but powerful,** others may want to borrow them!
From everyone at Directrice Global Industries, Ltd. and DGI, Inc. (our parent company), wishing you the very best in the New Year.

** For example, one year I resolved to smile more at strangers. You’d be surprised how favorably people respond. Another year, I vowed to wear lipstick every day. So easy to do, and it made me feel much more polished.
