So I had a job interview today. Totally landed the job and really excited about all the pluses. It's close to home, Monday thru Friday, and it's extra cash in the bank. I can now let loose and not stress about getting everything I want. I must sound like a spoiled brat. Since being out of work I have really curbed my personal spending. Living off of a quarter of what I use to make has been challenging. It has also help prioritize my life. That spending quality time with love ones, doing fun things is well worth the price of a new handbag.
Am I going to go back and set myself up for a major fashion fail (debt). Um no, I'm never going back to being that person that needs the hottest item no matter what the cost. I'm going to take the frugelness of thrifting, and remixing all of my existing clothing. O.k., I have to be honest- I will be able to afford something fab once in a while. It will mean so much more then just another fill in the blank. In doing so I can let my creativity run wild, and WERK it.
Today I wanted to wear my new leopard skirt to the interview. Since it is a department store job, I was able to get away with something more fashionable and not the predictable black suit.
I love the idea of black and brown together. This skirt just kicks ass. Have you noticed that leopard shines as a neutral? I will be able to wear it with a bevy of Fall colors, burgundy, hunter green, (agh) glittery silver. I wanted to keep it a little conservative and wore it with my open knit sweater and brown leatherette wooden wedge.
