I'm probably borderline comfortable, if that. Because of this, a lot of the clothes that I wear are either gifts or thrifted. This has never been a problem for me before, but I'm starting to worry now.
I start school at the end of March, however I also start student teaching at the end of March as well. The big problem here is that I don't own professional clothes. Old vintage dresses just won't cut it when I'm going to have to be teaching night school because I have to work fulltime too. My students would probably think that I'm a loon. I mean, let's face it, we're all a little looney, but I don't want to look like it while I'm working towards my career.
When I'm nannying I will wear whatever I pick up first in the morning as long as I don't mind if it gets snot on it, but I feel afraid to be in a world where I need to look 100% everyday (or at least 95%!)
Don't get me wrong, I feel that I am not a fashion idiot...I'm just not a rich woman. How does one get around trying to find thrifted professional clothes that aren't:
- pleated or
- made of polyester??
Anyway, I put together some inspirational pieces to give me some confidence to still be thrifty and buy second-hand, only with the intentions of putting more effort into adding embellishments.
The truth is, I don't even know when I'll have time for homework, let alone embellishing my wardrobe!
