the beginnings of a work wordrobe...

since i'm finally going to be getting out there to hand out my resume and hopefully get interviews, i needed some new clothes. off i went to the mall with my mom. we went to rw&co because well, they have nice stuff, but it also fits petite people without any altering. and that's huge. 'adult' clothes that fit me?! yes. (i'm 5'2"; and i love my height, i would never change it!). basically everything i tried on, i loved. and now i'm that more ready to be hired somewhere..(someone please hire me!!)

i put a few outfits together the next day and took some pictures, mostly to send to dylan. i have other shoes (obviously) but for the convenience of it, i kept the same ones on. also, ignore the terrible angle and me looking kind of down, thus resulting in the lovely double chin. and me not looking terribly happy. i told my mom not to get my head. she didn't listen.
 love this jacket. it's so soft and flowy and i can't wait to wear it with jeans and shorts too
 for the purple top, i would put a black cami under it, instead of the beige. but again, convenience, i didn't change it. and a more casual outfit on the right.
 love this white jacket too, and the top ;P

and this is all i came home with. pretty much everything can be mixed and matched. i felt like i was on what not to wear! lol i got 2 jackets, 3 pair of pants, 3 dressy shirts, 2 camisoles, and 3 't-shirts' that either have ruching or frills or something to 'fancy' it up a bit, but more casual than the blouse-y shirts.

and at home, i already had straight leg black pants that are full length, a black blazer, and the fuchsia dress i wore to my cousins, that's that!

now lets hope i get a job...or at least interviews. sigh.

*a fashion blogger, i am not.

You look great! I love your style.

I'm petite too (5'1-5'2) so I'm always on the lookout for great options! :)

With those outfits, employers would be crazy not to hire you!

This is the beginning of a fantastic work wardrobe! It takes a lot of time to gather up piece by piece! Look for great sales where they say things like "40% off everything". Good luck!

Good luck! Stay confident and don't anyone tell you otherwise!

I know how you feel - I am 4'11" hard to find small girl clothes :(

I have that yellow shirt, but in blue! So cute :)

Maggy said...

love your blog! i think you are a pretty good fashion blogger. i think the yellow top looked especially great on you. i was born and basically raised in/around toronto so its nice to find a blogger from around there.

i'd say good luck with the work outfits but it looks like you've got it all figured out.

The yellow top is the winner! Love it/have it in pink.
