I have been scrounging through my closet for a bit really trying to dissect my wardrobe into something professional looking. I want this insurance company to respect that I WANT to have a career and not a job, so I figured there are some things in my wardrobe that need to seriously be updated.
I had a TON of pants, but really very few dress shirts. The more I dug through the closet the more I became really frustrated with my professional clothing options. Where I work now we pretty much wear polos and jeans, slacks, or capris. I started thinking since I had so many pants I could just get a few nice suit jackets and buy a variety of camis to go underneath to shake up the color and such. What I discovered is every single solitary jacket is butt freaking ugly.
So, I started scouring the internet with the understanding that since I am taking a week off before I start my new job I will have to go to a tailor…yet another drawback to being short. My sleeves ALWAYS come half way down or over my hands if the clothes are long sleeved. Anyway, here are some of the items I picked and I am curious to see if you think they are professional enough!
I have a pair of black boots just like those…muhawaaahaaaa, and the dress was on sale for $17.00 Actually, I lied, my heels are higher on my boots!
On sale for $11.99
On sale for $39.99, which is more than I would normally pay for a dress, but damn that dress is classy enough for work, but sexy enough for a date!
Double Breasted suits never go out of style, and these were on sale…the whole suit is less than the price of one butt ugly jacket. I am getting 1 in Black and 1 in chocolate. I also love the damn pin stripes in this suit, but, I must go as mix and match as possible. *pout*
And last, I am getting this one in Navy. It was $34.99…Thank you for clearance items. *kisses the order screen*
So, grand total for 3 full suits and 3 dresses is under $200.00. I think that is a pretty damn good deal. I still need to go buy a few pairs of shoes too. I hate shoe shopping….love shoes, hate the shopping.
What do you think?
