Harrods Employee Fired For Not Wearing Makeup

harrods-employee-melanie-stark-fired-for-not-wearing-makeup.jpg

WTF!?

A 24 year old Harrods sales assistant claims she was "driven out" of her job after she refused to wear makeup.

Melanie Stark had worked at the posh retailer for four years sans makeup and was never bothered about it until last August when senior managers did a "floor walk". She was even offered a makeup workshop so she can see what she looked like with it on.

Says Melanie:

"I was appalled. It was insulting. Basically, it was implying it would be an improvement. I don't understand how they think it is OK to say that. I know what I look like with makeup. I have used it, though never at work. But I just could not see how, in this day and age, Harrods could take away my right to choose whether to wear it or not."

Harrods is known for having a strict dress code, which states "full makeup" (base, blusher, full eyes, lipstick, lip liner and gloss) be worn at all times.

She goes on to add:

"It's not like wearing black trousers, or a black shirt. This is my face. Make up can change your features completely, especially if I was to wear all of what they were asking. I would look like a different person to me. And I never chose to look like that."

When asked for comment Harrods was quick to defend themselves, saying Melanie had "a general lack of adherence to the dress code" and "decided to leave the business of her own accord with no reference made to dress code".

Ouch.

Florida's Close To Passing An Anti-Saggy Pants Law

florida-working-on-anti-saggy-pants-law.jpg

And the baggy pant backlash continues!

The state of Florida is thisclose to passing a law that would keep students from looking like a fool with their pants on the ground.

Under the proposed bill, which already passed in the Senate, both male and female students will be required to keep their pants up and underwear covered.

If they don't, punishment ranges from "a verbal warning to a three day in-school suspension and a 30 day suspension from extracurricular activities like football or theatre".

As you may remember, the UK tried to pass a similar law, but a judge ultimately decided such a ban could violate human rights.

Who wants to bet someone in Florida will try to fight this law for the same reason???

Disney Joins The 21st Century With New Dress Code

Filed under: Fashion SmashionDisney

It's about time!

The Walt Disney Company has revamped their decades old dress code by introducing more relaxed rules for employees at both Disneyland and Disney World.

Ladies will no longer be required to wear pantyhose if they wear a skirt to work, unless the legwear is part of their costume. Disney is also allowing female employees to wear sleeveless shirts so long as the strap is 3 inches wide AND capri pants.

Wow! They're practically spoiling these people!

The only thing men are allowed to do differently is wear casual shirts that don't have to be tucked in.

Disney says the changes, which began at the end of May, were done so they could "stay relevant".

Imagine what they'll do next!
