An outfit for: a real job

I may have mentioned that I work in a cinema. I may have also mentioned that I completed my degree last summer. I am beginning to think that these two statements don’t match up! So I have spent the past few months job hunting, filling in application forms and hoping for the best. Things now seem to be coming together.

One of the things I’m most looking forward to in a ‘proper job’ (other than the decent wage, reasonable hours and being able to drink tea while I’m working) is the clothes! I realise for a lot of people, work wear is the most boring part of their wardrobe, but it will be a novelty for me.

I don’t own a lot that could be considered work wear, but I have some pretty blouses, a black pencil skirt and a tailored blue dress that I accidentally bought off ebay thinking it was less formal. I adore the dress; it’s a fabulous cut and is clearly worth more than the £5 I paid for it!

I wanted to show you photos of the aforementioned clothes, but a combination of poor lighting and a broken camera means I'm having to do a Polyvore botch job. Sigh.

These are some nice work wear pieces. I don't really own anything that would be considered good work wear.

I don't own any professional looking clothing either. But these are some nice choices. Plus, it's another excuse to shop and buy new clothes!

Sweet finds. I don't have much professional attire in my wardrobe, maybe just a pair of pants or two. I also graduated a while ago and can't find a decent job. Le sigh...

Im excited to buy a work-appropriate wardrobe once I get round to applying for "real" jobs too! I graduated in June and am working in Asda bakery for now, but I'm itching to leave.
Also I love ebay bargains!
