This past weekend I went out with some friends to see the new chick flick “How to Be Single”. Right on time for Valentine’s Day and tempting us with the ever funny Rebel Wilson, I decided to give it a go although it’s pretty much the opposite of my type of film.

Career Wear Wishlist

I shop, therefore I am. But when I’m sitting at home job searching day in and day out I tighten the purse strings, and smartly so. Of course after wearing a uniform for two years I’m bound to be lacking in the career wear category.

But of course, I’m waiting until I actually get a job before I go shopping, because at this point I’m still unsure as to where I’ll end up. But there is no problem with browsing and creating a wish list now and then. These are a few items I’ve found in my browses that I think I’d like to wear to the office and some idea’s as to a ‘career appropriate’ style for myself.
