I figured since I have a more normal job I can dress normal. By normal I mean not in a blue button up shirt, jeans, and steel toed boots. Now I can dress girly. I now work back in the IT sector. As you can imagine there are about 30 men to every woman in the area that I work in. At first I didn’t want to dress up “Korin style” because I didn’t want attention on me. However, I feel like my work and creativity are lacking and that’s because I’m not being true to who I am. I’m not dressing up because I don’t want attention on me. First, I’m only ONE of two black women there. Second, I’m one of youngest people there. Third, I’m taller than most of the men. However, I can’t change who I am as a person because it does affect me in all aspects of my life. Really its affected my work too. So I have decided that I will dress like the person I am.
I have to say that I LOVE American Apparel. I actually bought the bodysuit yesterday because I needed something to wear the skirt. Since I bought the skirt without trying it on I didn’t know how it was going to fit against my body. So I didn’t have to worry about skin showing I opted to get buy a bodysuit. American Apparel is the only place I know that sells them so I made a trip to Mockingbird Station and picked it up.
I must say that I LOVE that American Apparel is made and sold in the USA. I purchased and black and white bodysuit for $28 each. Yes, that is kind of expensive but the bodysuits are of great quality and I will pay extra to know that my clothes were not made in China.
I’m really TRYING to buy more American made clothing.
