We asked two very different MC staffers to exchange clothes. Read on for their diaries of a traumatic week!
The Fashionista, in her favorite Marc by Marc Jacobs dress
Michelle has a go-for-it style.
>> "At lunch the fashion department shuns me. Seems dressing off-trend even for an assignment is crossing a line. The plain-Jane looks Julia has selected for me are my worst nightmare. Can I be this shallow? Does fashion really regulate my self-esteem?"
"I get bored easily and dress each day based on different characters. I'm just dreading Julia's colorless, boring clothes!" Michelle Reneau, Fashion Editor
The Classic Girl, in her favorite Gap turtleneck
Julia loves her everyday look.
>> "When my boss gushes about how 'sassy' I look in Michelle's clothes, I realize this experiment includes shock treatment. Then I hear everyone hooting at her in my fave pencil skirt and turtleneck. Is my wardrobe so hilarious? Am I just too uptight?"
"I admire Michelle as a brilliant stylist. But in her clothes, will I look like I never made it home from last night's groove at some club?" Julia Scirrotto, Copy Chief
