I always go for a business professional look when meeting with clients. In one of my Sunday’s Best post, I filled you in on my BCF secret. Well, here’s another steal from Burlington Coat Factory. The white collared shirt is from H&M. The boots are the Me Too Latrice Boots. The watch is Skagen and the ring is H&M. The suit is Anne Klein, or Nine West, or both lol. I actually picked up this suit because it was only $25 and I wholeheartedly believed it was a pair. It wasn’t until I got to the register that the cashier informed me that it was a mismatch. Yes! The jacket is Nine West (mmhmm they make clothes, not only shoes) and the skirt is Anne Klein. In the fitting room, I realized the suit was 2 different sizes but completely missed the fact that they were also 2 different labels (and shades of grey if you look close enough but I digress…) The blazer is a 6 petite–> which is perfect and the skirt is a size 2–> which was perfect during my middle school years! To no avail, I decided to try it on anyway, because let’s face it, casual wear has sizing issues. Example: there’s probably a 4 size difference between an H&M size 2 and an Anne Klein size 2. Just like there’s a significant difference between a Zara shoe size 39 and a Christian Louboutin shoe size 39. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself. Well, the suit fit- a little tighter than a glove. Case in point: see how the skirt wrinkles at the top? Signs I need to stop eating fried chicken from Richie Rich Caribbean Restaurant. But who cares for a little tightness when your designer suit is 25 dollaassss?
I also had to change my ‘Sunday Funday’ Essie nail polish to a ‘Wet Cement’ Wet & Wild Polish. I don’t want my nails to be the center of attention at a meeting, it’ll distract people from my hair, or lack thereof. Haha. Hope ya didn’t miss that one!
Anyway, get to a Burlington Coat Factory near you. If you lack patience, find it. You’ll need it to search for gems at this store.
