Finally found some work clothes!

March 28th, 2009 at 10:08 am

I may an impulse purchase yesterday, but one that is definitely worth it.

For my job I have to wear a white, buttoned-down, collared, long sleeve, plain shirt. No fancy buttons, etc.

And it has been extremely hard for me to find one in my size. But yesterday I ran into some good luck when my boyfriend needed to go shopping.

We stopped by Old Navy because boyfriend needed to get some clothes and while he was trying on the clothes I wandered off and did some browsing myself. I wasn't intending to buy anything, just wanted to see what they had (it's been a long time since I've been in Old Navy).

And there I saw it: shirts I can wear for work! I checked the shirt over- small buttons, buttoned up to the top, collar, long sleeve, etc. I grabbed an XS (last one they had too- I really lucked out!) and tried it on.

It fit!

Yay! It cost $20 but well worth it. I now have a total of 3 shirts I can wear for work! In a few weeks I'll go back and see if they have anymore in my size. When I go back I will also look for a pair of black slacks. One of the two I have for work will need to be replaced soon.

    Tip: check the girl's school uniform racks in stores like Target and KMart. They have a range of sizes. My size "0" friend finds the white shirts she needs there. They aren't tailored, though, so they are a blousy fit.

    hmmm I was going to say check the girl's section as well. Glad you were able to find them

    also see if they can get any shipped in from other old navy stores - sometimes they might. if it is a good quality shirt and you like it, it would be worth stocking up on a few.

    I'll definitely check the uniform section next time. I know Sears has a uniform section too. It never occurred to me to check there. I don't mind if I have to get it tailored, I have to get a lot of things tailored anyway. Thanks!
