Career Wardrobe

Attention all frugal fashionistas:

Do you want to find great deals on high end brands and also empower women at the same time? Keep reading…

So you may or may not know this about me but I’m a philantropist at heart. I give my undergrad experience all of the credit. It took me a while to find the right organization to be passionate about and I stumbled on this organization via Instagram! 

So Wardrobe Boutique is an upscale resale store where proceeds will benefit Career Wardrobe. This non-profit organization provides free professional clothing and career search support. They empower women by giving them the confidence to find a job through something as simple as an interview outfit. 

So I encourage all of you fashionistas to help this generous organization by donating your clothes, your time, or by shopping at their boutique or on their website. The employees are friendly and welcoming. They have several volunteer opportunities such as retail or dressing assistant, resume reviewer, event volunteer, and more. I look forward to my next shift.

Here is my preppy outfit pick from the boutique. (Vintage Lilly Pulitzer and Jack Rogers) 

They have dresses, tops, shoes, handbags, skirts, jewlery, and more! 

Some racks are dedicated to specific brands such as J.crew, Ann Taylor, Loft, and Banana Republic. 

This section is dedicated to the clients for finding the right clothes for an interview.

DIY pearl and ribbon necklace

Do you ever think that your jewelry could use a little update? For me I have tons of the same pearl necklaces. So by adding a ribbon, it can really add some flair.

Things you’ll need:
1) Long pearl necklace (preferably something without a clasp)
2) Any color ribbon (.5-2in)
3) Scissors

My necklace has a chain and clasp so I had to cut it off and tie the necklace together.

(null)

Take your necklace and wrap it around twice or as many times as you like. It depends on how long your necklace is.

(null)

Next, take your ribbon (.5-1in will work best) and tie it to one end of the necklace. And cut about 15-20in for each side.

(null)

Repeat on the other side then tie together!

Viola! It’s as simple as that.
