Black, White & Shades of Grey

It’s Monday morning and I’m sitting at my desk at work sad that the weekend is over. But, I’m so happy that I got to bust out my brand new Chanel. Because who doesn’t need a little Chanel in their life?

For dinner with friends this weekend, I decided to stick with the them of Black & White with my gorgeous new Chanel bag and team it with an all black outfit with a subtle touch of white. And, I found the perfect top from Tobi. This super cute high neck tank with white stripes down the side. It was like this top and this purse were meant to be.

To break up the complete black and white, I paired the outfit with my new favorite Stuart Weitzman grey Hijinx Sandals and a bold berry lip from Kat Von D.

I got lots of compliments on my outfit and lots of oohs and aahhs over my new Chanel. As is to be expected. I mean, come on, it’s Chanel.

Bangin’ Bodysuit

I remember when I was a teenager, I was playing around in my mother’s closet and saw some bodysuits that she kept from the early ’90s. I proceeded to make fun of her and laugh about how she still had something in her closet that was so outdated. She just smiled a knowing smile that I didn’t understand at the time, but now I do.

Because, I am now obsessed with bodysuits. And, I know realize that my mother’s knowing smile was that one day the bodysuits that I made fun of would come back around in the fashion cycle. Like this amazing ribbed lace up bodysuit from Tobi. It was perfect for this spring afternoon outfit paired with some high-waisted jeans (another 90’s fashion revival), one of my favorite jackets from Zara and some cute booties. Love it!

ZARA Sued for Employee Discrimination

ZARA USA, Inc. has recently been sued by its former General Counsel, Jack Miller in New York’s Supreme Court. Miller is asserting violations of New York state and city laws prohibiting discrimination, wrongful discharge, retaliation and a hostile work environment.

Miller is asking the court for damages, including lost compensation, back pay, front pay, compensatory damages, liquidated damages, and punitive damages, all amounting to $40 million.

Miller held the post of General Counsel of the American department of the retail giant from January 2008 until March 2015. He helped to build the legal department and handled all the legal matters that ZARA USA, Inc. encountered during his time there, including litigation, real estate transactions and acquisitions.

During his time at ZARA, Miller began to notice a hostile work environment because he didn’t fit in ZARA’s demographic of straight, Spanish and Christian. Miller claims that his supervisors and peers began to send him homophobic emails, make anti-Semitic remarks, and claimed that Spanish employees had greater job security than other employees.

Miller complained to Javier Monteoliva, Inditex Group‘s highest legal officer; however, Miller claims that no steps were taken to rectify the situation. Miller states that on March 2, 2015, Monteoliva then told Miller that his position at ZARA was in jeopardy and that one of Miller’s peers, Dilip Patel, who had engaged in harassing conduct, was very close to ZARA founder, Amancio Ortega, and therefore was unlikely to be reprimanded for his behavior.
