The Professional Me

     Why do ladies take pictures of themselves and post them online?  It's a question I've been pondering for a while now and I have not come up with any satisfactory answers.  This is my main excuse for the lack of activity here at the garment thread in recent months (that and the fact that my photographic skills are not something I feel it is necessary to subject you all to).  That said, for whatever mysterious reason I can't seem to bring myself to shut down this much neglected blog altogether, however ambivalent I feel about it at the moment.  
     Shall I tell you a bit about these pictures?  Well, I have newly been employed by a certain clothing shop where putting together interesting outfits is not only encouraged, but somewhat mandatory.  Will this inspire me to do some more blogging?  Does the world really need another girl showing off her daily wardrobe choices?  We'll see, but for the moment here are a few shots of me avant le travail.

 I think all of this outfit was thrifted with the exception of the handbag which comes to me courtesy of my late maternal grandmother.

 Striped shirt -  Target; Floral dress - Celia Birtwell for Express (I bought it at either Marshall's or T.J. Maxx)

Got this dress at a clothing swap.  The belt is part of a vintage ensemble, but I never like wearing dresses with matching belts, so I don't believe it's ever been seen with it's intended partner.
