Last Thursday marked a new milestone in my career--I signed an employment contract with a digital advertising agency. As always, I was very thankful that I was given another chance to improve myself--that is to grow and learn more about myself, my craft, the corporate world and a new industry. Those are more than enough to make me very excited with this new challenge.
For the contract signing, I chose an outfit that is professional-looking yet stylish enough to pass for my creative and eclectic side.
I guess in the corporate world, choosing the proper attire and grooming yourself ready are as important as choosing the right words to say during an interview or meeting. It is actually one of the reasons why Steve Jobs ended up wearing his signature black long-sleeved shirt, blue jeans and rubber shoes; as opposed to his flowing orange robe and shoe-less ensemble.
I love tights.
The good thing about wearing tights is that I am able to move freely and feel secure even though I am in an above-the-knee dress or skirt and high heels combo. Aside to the fact that tights can easily make an outfit look more "professional".
Total outfit cost without the bag is P2,640 (USD58.67).
Breakdown of costs:
- Dress- Space, P350
- White sleeveless top- Plains and Prints, P750
- Tights- Gap USA, P450
- Shoes- SM Department Store, P990
- Silver necklace- bazaar, P100
