Re: where do you buy your work clothes?

I am not currently working, but I've been trying to update my "momdrobe" with more current, classic, and nicer things - I've been in a jeans and t-shirt rut for too long! Anyway, I tend to shy away from big stores b/c they kind of intimidate me (yes, I'm weird) but I was in JC Penney about a week ago and was really impressed with their selection and styles...and soooo much cheaper than Macy's!

I buy most of my work clothes as Ross. I have to wear suits and nice dresses because I work in a courtroom and those clothes get real expensive at regular stores.
I need to find more time to get ti Goodwill. I went there all the time when I was a SAHM but now it is hard to find the time.

lol I know how you feel. And now that I bought all these clothes they've given me 3 scrub tops, 2 lab jackets and a t-shirt for work. (Though the t-shirt can only be worn on Fridays) sigh. What's the sense having nice work clothes if I have to cover them up!!!

You can leave Goodwill with pants from $6.99 to $12.99 that are like new and blouses are the same price. Budget for $75 and you can get a lot of clothes! Find a store that is in the better part of town and the quality of the clothes will be better too.
