Work, Work, Work, Work, Work

Before I got my current job, I was working retail. I was working at the store WetSeal and pretty much had the ability to wear whatever I wanted as long as it was an appropriate length and cut that would represent the store and myself well. WetSeal merchandise was always encouraged to wear, so you can imagine just how much I would spend on clothes there on pay day. Plus who doesn’t like a great employee discount?

Now that I am in an office environment, there had to be some changes to my wardrobe. I am the person who sits at the front desk. I answer phone calls, I work on documents, I greet visitors and try to help them with general questions about certain services and because I sit in the front desk, I am the first face people see which puts the need to represent my department well. This put some pressure on me about what I can’t wear anymore. No more ripped jeans. No more spaghetti strapped tops. No more shorts, even if they were dressy shorts. No more shirts that say words like “Tacos & Tequila” or “Beach Please” or “no makeup, no problem” or “all I need is coffee and wifi”…you get the picture. I went into the job interview wearing a high neck black dress and black closed toe flats. I kept the makeup natural looking and straightened my hair. You have no idea how much I researched on what to wear for an interview. Maybe I can blog on some tips soon?

Anyways, my style has transformed since being at my current job and today I am going to show you 3 different looks that I have gotten compliments on at work. This first one is a bit fierce, but it is not over the top. In my personal opinion, mixing two different animal prints is pretty daring and can make any outfit look more trendy. This outfit is under $75 and has started a lot of conversations from visitors to the office.

This second outfit was under $50! The colors in this outfit made me think of Daphnie from Scooby-Doo! Pretty sophisticated and girly at the same time.

Last look is one that plays with flawless black and white with a pop of color! This outfit was also under $75 and the skirt was only $4!

Which one of these outfits is your favorite? Do you want to know details on these outfits? Tomorrow I will be posting more details on these three outfits and am currently working on a video for you guys! I hope you guys enjoyed these looks. Do not be afraid to allow your style to grow up with you! Stay stylish my friends.

 

 

Shoedazzle Obsession

It’s another hot day in Texas, but that is nothing new. Especially in the month of July! What’s also nothing new is my Shoedazzle addiction. It doesn’t matter what month out of the year it is, I have a shopping problem with this online store.

I have been a Shoedazzle member since 2011! I used to also be a member of their sister store JustFab, but I ended up canceling the account because I was getting involved in too much online shopping for my bank account’s comfort. I am going to keep this blog short and straight to the point when I say that I really love Shoedazzle. They have a lot of nice styles that come in different colors and my membership guarantees me the VIP price of their products versus the original price. I love that I can scroll through all types of styles and even look at bags, clothing and accessories. Although I love clothes, I really come shop here for their shoes. I buy mostly flats and boots and have gotten compliments on every single pair I’ve purchased from here. Coincidence? I doubt it.

If you love shoes and shop for shoes very often, then I recommend creating a membership with Shoedazzle. The only catch is that your card will be charged $39.99 if you do not ‘Skip the Month’ by the 5th day of each new month that comes up. Although I think this rule sucks, I have personally managed to remember to skip the month if buying shoes is not in the budget. If you know you may forget to do this each month, you can set a reminder on your phone to skip or you can shop the site without becoming a member. Members have the benefit of purchasing anything at a discounted price, so really think about what would be the best thing to do for yourself.

This blog is short for today, but before I go, here are the new pair of shoes that I bought that came in yesterday! These shoes are called Kayna and they also come in black!
