As with any speaking engagement, my last concern is always, ALWAYS, what I should wear. Honestly, for my teaching semester at the Ateneo, I had thought that I had enough business-y clothes for the whole semester so I didn't think this through well enough. After all, my mom and I went on a shopping spree at Old Navy last Christmas and I got a lot of office-attire-worthy clothes at seriously huge discounts.
... I realised soon early in the semester that I was dead wrong.
On a different shopping day out, Joann and Kor were with me at the Festival Mall branch of Payless Shoes where I got two pairs of pumps at very low prices: a bronze pair and a purple pair. We were there when a lot of the shoes were being sold at a huge discount! During that same trip, they helped me find a nice tangerine orange wrap dress that is now one of my go-to dresses.
And on another of these recent shopping expeditions, Matty helped me further boost my dress collection. He found two dresses that instantly screamed "Buy me!": an A-line belted dress at Debenhams and a piped fit and flare dress at Banana Republic (I felt like I was muted down version of the Girl in the Green Scarf).
