What (Not) To Wear

Lately, I've been working almost non-stop, but still just enough under the full-time line that I still qualify as part-time. Which is to be expected- the boss doesn't like to have full-time workers because then she has to start offering benefits. I don't really mind- I'm twenty and still on my dad's insurance, and I don't think I'll be working my current job for the rest of my life. But I am in a bit of a bind now, because I've been working so much. Later this week I have to take a trip to California for a bunch of family stuff (which should be interesting... I'll probably blog about it when I get back), but I'm realizing I don't really have any formal clothes or even really clothes to wear to a party.

I have my job-hunting clothes, and the stuff I wore when I was an FBLA officer in high school (that still fits- mostly). Other than that? I have my work clothes, and T-shirts. I do have a couple nice things from the Korean clothing store in the next city over, but I don't know if they'd be considered formal enough to wear to these events. And forget about shoes- I have about ten million pairs of flip-flops, a pair of winter boots, a pair of shoes from Aerosoles that I sometimes wear to work (although those are more winter shoes), and the trainers I wear to work most of the time. Again, nothing all that nice. But I don't know how in the hell I'm supposed to be able to get things like that when I'm working all the time, and furthermore, I don't want to spend the money.

Well, even if I look like I escaped the basement, I can at least do my makeup well.
