Today I chose a pair of pants that I actually used to wear a lot. This was in between my Target manager phase (yes, I was a Target manager in the softlines department) where Red and Khaki were only allowed and my current skirt/dress obsession. This was clearly a transition phase. Naturally, I went from khakis to dress pants as I started my office career. These pants had been bought for me by my Mother who is very fashionable in her own right. However, when she bought them for me, I weighed a meer 105lbs and didn't have a behind as I do today at 27 years old. BUT 5 years later, they still fit! So I guess that is good.
Slacks: Gift from my mom (they are Kenra though)
Heels: Jessica Simpson
Now, I wanted to add something else and this just may out me as a complete fashion nerd. I mean, I am OK with that because I am in fact a complete fashion nerd. Behold...The Fashion Binder.
As a reference to the above Target remark, I had access to many fashion magazines. In fact, I was encouraged to keep up with fashion in order to drive sales by positioning fashionable clothes on my salesfloor. So, I took this to heart by starting a fashion binder. It started in Fall of 2006 by clipping out outfits, shoes, accessories, and beauty from almost every fashion magazine available to me and pasting them into a binder. So, I wanted to share because even though I no longer need to binder to drive sales in my softlines department, I keep it as a reference when I draw a complete blank on what to wear (if you notice on some of the pictures there are marked stars...this means I own a similar piece in my closet).
