My third attempt at shopping for work clothes ended about as well as the first and second shopping trips.
I didn’t buy much.
I probably would find great clothing if I was willing to spend a little more money: Gap, The Limited, Dillard’s – all great options! However, I limit my clothing options to Gordman’s, Kohl’s, TJMaxx and second-hand shops like Plato’s Closet.
I’m so cheap.
The fit was perfect around my torso, but then there was WAY too much fabric roaming around my shoulders. Shirts have to stay on at work.

Shirts also have to be all there at work, but the pink was really pretty.
The picture might not do justice to how ridiculous I looked in this shirt.
This top was – for the most part – OK, except for the sleeves. I’m also pretty sure it wouldn’t look good with black pants, and that’s all I have. A no-go.
I cannot wear this shirt to work. Three cutouts in the back don’t cover my shoulder art, and I don’t think I should be wearing shirts with cutouts to work.
I still bought it because it’s totally cute and comfortable.
In my defense, I tried on shirts that were colors other than black. I bought this black shirt for work because it wasn’t too tight (one size larger than I wear), and it’s clean cut.
Two shirts. Seven stores. Epic fail.
I need a personal shopper. That’s all there is to it. I am now taking applications. Shoot me an email.
