female employees must wear makeup and heels

According to New York magazine, the Bank of England held "Dress for Success" day last week and sent out a memo to female employees detailing just how they should dress for success.

Read all about it here.


  1. Wow, a dress code held over from a hundred years ago! "always wear a heel of some sort — maximum 2 inches"

    Because anything higher would risk them looking taller, or, Gods forbid, sexier.

    "always wear some sort of makeup — even if it’s just lipstick"

    Most of the women I work with get by with eyeliner and lipgloss.

    "Shoes and skirt must be the same color."

    I suppose hose and shoes must match as well.


  2. dirty old men i say.
    some things never change.
