Just got my first “professional” job in 3 years at a bank. It’s only temp until the end of the year but there’s the possiblity of extending for another year.
Anyways, I used to work in an office that was “business casual” and all my career clothes fit into that category. I also had put on weight from fertility drugs and when I lost the weight I bought brand-new ones but I’ve since lost more weight and they’re too big. Having them tailored is too much over here and not worth it for the cost of the clothes.
Some of my clothes are outdated (I think) and not up to the standards of working in a bank….I do not have to wear suits though.
So Darling Husband said for me to come up with an amount to purchase new clothes. Since we’re overseas, I’m gonna have to shop online and it usually takes 2 months to receive a shipment so I’m in a hurry to start ordering.
What’s a good starting point? Any tips for me? I’m fashion-challenged….I’m the jeans/t-shirts kind of gal.
