Shopping Trip #3: Conservative Fashion-Forward Work Clothes

My third attempt at shopping for work clothes ended about as well as the first and second shopping trips.

I didn’t buy much.

I probably would find great clothing if I was willing to spend a little more money: Gap, The Limited, Dillard’s – all great options! However, I limit my clothing options to Gordman’s, Kohl’s, TJMaxx and second-hand shops like Plato’s Closet.

I’m so cheap.

Charlotte Russe Blue-Green Sweater
The fit was perfect around my torso, but then there was WAY too much fabric roaming around my shoulders. Shirts have to stay on at work.

Shirts also have to be all there at work, but the pink was really pretty.

Gordman's Patterned Silky TopThe picture might not do justice to how ridiculous I looked in this shirt.

A black-and-white striped shirt from Charlotte Russe in the East Mall in Wichita KSI cannot wear this shirt to work. Three cutouts in the back don’t cover my shoulder art, and I don’t think I should be wearing shirts with cutouts to work.

I still bought it because it’s totally cute and comfortable.

Two shirts. Seven stores. Epic fail.

I need a personal shopper. That’s all there is to it. I am now taking applications. Shoot me an email.

Where do conservative fashion-forward cheap women shop in Wichita? Is it always such an adventure?

      I just looked so silly in that shirt. I’m too big in the hips for a flare right there! :) (I can’t remember how much it cost!)

      The green one was so cute, but the sleeves were odd feeling… I’m so picky with clothing – it’s ridiculous. I’m a relaxed dresser. Jeans and T-shirts are my favorite things. Ever.

      Thanks for your input!
