Unofficial Official Guide to SAS Global Forum – What Not to Wear Part 2
Who knew ... geeks are chic? At least SAS geeks are chic!
Due to the overwhelming response to the last post on the Unofficial Official Guide to SAS Global Forum - What not to Wear I thought I would follow it up with Part II.
I gathered some more fashion-forward colleagues and I asked “What would you NOT wear to SAS Global Forum?”
A: “Jorts” For those who are not aware these are jean shorts. Unless you are able to slide across the hood of the General Lee, jean shorts are out. For men, I hope they were never considered IN.
As an FYI, shorts for the most part are not considered business casual so better to stay away
A: Overalls – Unless you are under the age of two – PLEASE DON’T!
Having visited the North Carolina State Fair more than a few times, I am hoping my fellow North Carolinians are reading this and when October rolls around this advice will carry over.
A .White Fluffy Cats (or other domestic animals) - Service animals aside, live animals as an accessory = not a style. The exception to this rule is CeeLo Green (hope to see you at SAS Global Forum).
Let me assure everyone - you will meet enough new friends at SAS Global Forum – no need to carry one around in your purse.
A. Fanny Packs – If I can stress one item, this is the one. It might be the biggest no-no there is when it comes to fashion. They weren’t even IN when they were IN. Definitely not large enough for a live animal (already established as “not a style”) so leave these at home. Better yet, throw them out, they aren’t even donation worthy.
A. Crop Tops (Belly Shirts) – As my son (6) says when my daughter (2) leaves the bathroom door open – “Ugh, No one needs to see that!!!”
To all my colleagues who helped and the readers who have commented, thank you. I am on my way to Chico's since my closet has now been depleted of just about all my clothing 🙂
Should this be a session topic next year? Heck, why wait a year other SAS Users Groups are on the horizon many with open call for papers as we speak. For more information on other SAS Users Groups and how to submit a paper, visit http://support.sas.com/sasusersupport/usergroups/groupTypes?a=0
