Today’s daily prompt made me realize I have obviously watched too much What Not To Wear. I won’t even go through a drive thru in sweatpants. Their number one piece of advice on every episode is never go anywhere in your lounge wear. I have taken that to heart. I don’t always “dress up” but I at least throw on a pair of jeans and put on a real bra. I do take pride in looking nice. And I’m paranoid that I’ll end up on People of Wal-Mart if I don’t.
I work hard at looking professional in a “business casual” office and dress up a little on Sundays even though it’s not required at my non-denominational church. I can also blame my shopaholic condition on Project Runway. Really, I should blame my college roommate for getting me interested in it in the first place. (And by blame, I mean thank.) I was living in worn out jeans and sorority event t-shirts and these two TV shows saved my fashion life. It also helps that I have a job that allows me some spending money. Thanks to tax season overtime, I own a pair of Nine West shoes. Nine West, y’all. I have arrived. But seriously, it takes work to look good and I’m glad Stacy, Clinton, Heidi and Tim were there to help me out.
