Think you can't mix work and play — at least, not without disastrous results? Think again. During the "Power of Presence" event hosted by Ann Taylor next week, Marie Claire's features director and a LinkedIn career expert will host a discussion about the ins and outs of career advancement, and the mag's merchandising editor will weigh in on how to dress for the office. Then it's time for a tutorial on how to take a great profile pic for your LinkedIn page — after a mini makeover, of course. During the event, you'll also get tips on networking (which you'll presumably try out on the spot) and a chance to mingle with other career-driven ladies. Hey, any time we have a completely viable — even admirable — excuse to justify shopping, we'll take it.

When: Wednesday, September 18, from 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: Ann Taylor, 600 13th Street NW; 202-737-0325. RSVP here.
