Still...I put it on and hemmed and hawed and hemmed and hawed and also waffled. A regular day at the office? Sure. But inspiring confidence? Communicating 25 years of experience? Maybe not. I'd already axed a pink-ish schemed get-up as being too confectionery. So it's not as if I had time to come up with yet another outfit. Whaddya think?
- Brown cardigan $4
- White t-shirt $3
- Brown floral belt $2
- Brown Doc Marten's double t-straps $4
- Scarf $1
- Dangly white earrings $1
- White footless tights $5
- Anthro heavy burlap-y like linen skirt with embroidered yellow, brown, and blue lines purchased in a moment of weakness on super sale marked down from i shit you not $150 to $29.
What I would change about this outfit now that I've seen the photo:
- In my attempt to conservative up the joint I neglected to accessorize for the most part. So, boring.
- Otherwise, cute.
- But...I decided it was too juvenile for a pitch meeting. Just a little bit too twee-french-school-girl to risk a bucket of dough and a cool campaign on, y'know? I think if I had some dressier brown shoes it could have worked - but my brown shoes all have ankle straps which fuck with the footless tights (which were necessary cuz the skirt is a tad short for me and I needed the tights for protection). AAAAANNNNYYYWAAAAYYYY, I ended up changing the entire thing at the very last minute to this. It's so great to have readymade outfits to turn to.
Total outfit cost: $49
P.S. The pitch went well. But because I like what I do, pitches are almost always fun for me. So who knows?
