Career women, aside from their work-related essentials, need to store fashion and beauty essentials at their desks for emergency occasions that call for instant suiting up. Below, we round up the essentials every working woman must always have in her cube.

There will be instances when your feet will just hate you for wearing high heels. Having flats under your table will be a great relief for your tired feet.
