So it's probably understandable that I'm a bit reluctant to spend too much money on clothes. After all, we're probably not going to be together for that long anyway.
But jeans and an old t-shirt doesn't really scream "I'm totally a professional, you guys" so much as it says "I'm really tired and didn't even realize there was spaghetti sauce on my boob."
So - Five Dollar Fridays. Where I take $5.00 pieces of clothing and/or accessories and try to make myself look like someone who doesn't regularly have dog slobber in her hair and spaghetti sauce on her boob.
This is a three piece, 1960's cotton blend, pencil skirt/top/jacket set. Five bucks at a local thrift store. (jacket not pictured)
I wore this to work on Saturday night. The shirt buttons up the back, so I needed a little help putting it on. The skirt zips up the back. I accomplished that part all by myself. True story.
This is the part at work where I'm supposed to be washing dishes but instead I hid myself in this closet instead. And got busted.
This is my "model face." Basically, I look at things that aren't there and I think about ice cream. I made the necklace I'm wearing. The pendant is made from a spoon that has an art deco theme. My husband cut it for me with some fancy tool that he hides out in "husband land" and I drilled a hole through it and hung it on a chain. The spoon cost a quarter.
"Do you guys think they have that Paris Hilton song in here?"
After I finished blowing off washing the dishes, I rewarded myself with a Black Russian with a cherry on top, for a shift well done. The glass is vintage, 1960's, and we bought a set of 8 for $2.00 for the bar.
