A few weeks ago I had received a job offer to be a receptionist at a local beauty bar. When I went over the technicals with my new boss, the topic of dress code came up. A standard dress uniform at my new job included anything black… ANYTHING BLACK! As soon as I found out the good news I went on an American Apparel shopping spree for the most beautiful basic black pieces. Needless to say, I dipped into my work wardrobe early and bought things that weren’t exactly considered work attire. New job, new clothes, new year… I’m not going to go there… Same me.
