Paralegal Career Dressing: Clearance Racks Rock

One of the reasons I’m so interested in career fashion blogging is that I’m rarely wearing $50 worth of clothing total. Does that make me one cheap paralegal – or just thrifty?

Anyway, you guys know I know it’s hard to have a great work wardrobe on a limited budget – or is it? As the teens get older and drain more of my wallet, I generally stick to thrift stores, clearance racks, and discount fashion retailers for work clothes.

Have I mentioned that I had to wear mostly out-of-date hand-me-downs and senior citizen elastic-waisted polyester pants as a teenager, when everyone else had jeans? I don’t smoke, drink, gamble, or cheat, but I do have a little bit of a clothes habit as an adult.


Skirt (Talbots ~ $25); Cardi (Loft ~ $14); Tee (Kohl’s ~ $6); Nine West heels (Ross); Belt (Steinmart)

I won these in a Christmas Round Robin exchange, with a matching necklace 🙂
I never belted my sweaters – ever – until I started reading work wardrobe blogs, can you believe it?

What’s your favorite clearance rack to prowl regularly?
