|What Would Dolly Do?|
Well my petals I have finally got a full time job, I am very petrified about the prospect of starting, as I have not worked, accept for temporary and voluntary roles for just under a year. I made the choice of leaving the job I had whilst at university to try and pursue something more me, i.e. creative or at least not retail! This job is six months and it is in an office so I am panicking about my wardrobe some what, as I only ever really worked in places where you can wear what you want. However I have purchased this skirt from ASOS recently, and am thinking a pussy bow blouse and heels should do the trick.
I am the kind of person who thinks you should put the same amount of effort (and money) in your work clothes as you do in your leisure. So it is going to be very interesting to see how I adapt my mad old lady style to fit in with 'smart casual', come to think of it what does that even mean, I am thinking perhaps tuxedo, but with trainers? a la Step Brothers.
I know I may sound shallow, but the way I dress is who I am, it is how I express myself and I hate having to water it down or conform, but that's what being an adult is all about? This is until I start making and selling more or open that cinema/bakery/shop I keep day dreaming about. How do you dress for work? do you have to adhere to any dress code, and does it may it easier or more difficult when selecting and getting dressed in the morning?

|Houndstooth suit a la Bacall|
Am hoping I will be able to get away with wearing a houndstooth suit I own, then I can pretend I am Slim in To Have and Have Not.
