Why I won’t be working at the Bank of England

“Look professional, not fashionable; be careful with perfume; always wear a heel of some sort — maximum 2 inches; always wear some sort of makeup — even if it’s just lipstick.” Shoes and skirt must be the same color. No-no’s include ankle chains — “professional, but not the one you want to be associated with;” white high heels; overstuffed handbags; an overload of rings, and double-pierced ears.

It would just be too hard to find shoes to go with my pinstripe suit. (Though the some makeup, any makeup rule might be fun to follow.)
