You all know how much I despise the term “Casual Friday”. I like to think of Fridays as a day to dress your best, since it’s the start of the weekend, and we all know trekking through the last day before the weekend can be a struggle. I like to kick off the weekend in style, hence Fancy Fridays was born. Plus, it’s Jummah, so, we’re kind of expected to do that… 🙂
Well, a couple Fridays ago, I was doing just that. I had found my latest Pinterest inspo and took the time to wake up early, do my hair and my makeup, iron my clothes (I know, I’m proud of myself when I do that too 😉 lol) and I set off to work. I was dressed in black, head to toe in a fancy little jumpsuit ❤ and I walk in to find that my teammates are dressed the same! We looked fantastic, let me tell you.
People kept asking if we’d planned out our looks together and one of my co-workers said, “No, we’re dressed like this because we’re going to a client meeting. But Zahra looks like she could be going too…” And then it happened. It was like a light bulb went off in her head. “Actually, Zahra, I think it would be good if you did come!”
Before she’d even posed the question, I had confirmed that yes, I would most certainly love to come. 😀 And just like that, I was part of an intimate, face-to-face meeting with the client. I was learning new things and getting insight into strategies that would affect multiple campaigns to come! So, ladies and gentlemen, THAT is how Fancy Friday got me into my first client meeting.
