Barely 40: Bored In The Board Room?

Jacqueline Wells

Stephanie is a forty-something free spirit who believes “older and wiser” doesn’t have to mean “boring and unadventurous.”


Back in the day, I use to participate in a lot of boardroom meetings. I would be the presenter as well as the listener. When it came for me to do the presenting, I came as the strong, capable, and confident woman that I am.

I will disclose only part of the confidence came from within. It wasn’t always what I had to say, but what I was wearing.

What was my secret weapon? Garter belts and thigh-high stockings.

Shop stockings on

Nothing and I mean nothing, makes you feel more confident, sexier, and more alive than when you slip on those naughty things. The best part is no one knows you have them on. It’s your own dirty little secret.

Garters and thigh-highs aren’t just for special occasions. Try wearing them to your “regular” Monday meeting and feel your confidence level rise. Or wear them on a Thursday when your significant other isn’t expecting anything. See if that isn’t the best Thursday you’ve had in a while!

I’m telling you ladies. Lace, confidence, and seductiveness are the weapons of sexy destruction. Bring the beauty from within.
