OUTFITS FOR INTERVIEW & WORK (OFFICE)

HELLO Y'ALL, HAPPY MONDAY! SO I WAS TALKING TO SOME OF MY BESTIES ABOUT JOBS AND HOW RIGHT NOW THERES SO MANY JOBS BUT NOBODY WANTS TO HIRE PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE "EXPERIENCE" WHICH IN SOME FIELDS IF YOU DIDN'T STUDY OR KNOW AKA MEDICINE OR GO TO SCHOOL FOR OR SOMETHING THEN OK IT'S UNDERSTANDABLE BUT IF YOU GO TO SCHOOL AND LOOK FOR A JOB IN YOUR FIELD AND THEY SAY YOU DON'T HAVE EXPERIENCE UMMM IT UPSETS ME BECAUSE FIRST YOU SPEND SO MUCH TIME AND MONEY TO GET THIS EDUCATION. ISN'T STUDYING YOUR FIELD ENOUGH EXPERIENCE----I HAVE A POINT TO THIS STAY WITH ME HAHAHA SO IT LEADS TO PEOPLE DOING CRAP JOBS WITH LITTLE PAY AND THAT'S NOT FAIR. I BELIEVE WHEN YOU INVEST YOUR LOVE YOU INVEST YOUR LIFE. EVER SINCE I WAS LITTLE I'VE ALWAYS LIKED BUSINESS I DIDN'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT IT AND I'M STILL LEARNING BUT I WANTED TO PROVIDE SOMETHING TO PEOPLE TO MAKE THEM HAPPY BUT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THEM TOO. I AM BUILDING MY PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS WHICH I HAD STOPPED FOR A WHILE AND IF YOU FOLLOW ME ON SNAPCHAT OR ON HERE YOU KNOW IT BROKE MY HEART TO STOP BUT GOD HAD PLANS FOR ME AND I'M GRATEFUL I DID STOP BECAUSE I BELIEVE I'M WHERE I'M SUPPOSE TO BE IN LIFE I KNOW I WON'T ALWAYS STAY HERE BUT YA I'M HAPPY AND I LEARNED A LOT WHILE I STOPPED. I FELT LIKE A FAILURE WELL MORE LIKE A LOSER AND I SAY THAT BECAUSE I'M NOT AFRAID OF FAILING BECAUSE FAILURE IS MISTAKES AND I BELIEVE IN NOT BECOMING BITTER BUT BETTER FROM MY MISTAKES AND LIFE IS NOT PERFECT. I HAD PRAYED TO GOD---- BUT I LOVE DOING PHOTOGRAPHY AND BEING MY OWN BOSS FOR MY OWN BUSINESS(WHICH I MUST ADD GOD IS MY BOSS AND HE'S THE BEST) BUT IF I HAD NOT STOPPED I WOULDNT BE HERE WRITING THIS RIGHT NOW AND STARTING A NEW BUSINESS DREAM OF MINE WHICH IS THIS BLOG.
I WAS EXCITED BUT SO SCARED AND YOU MAY THINK WHY SCARED WELL ALTHOUGH BLOGGING IS BIG NOW; I HAVE BEEN WANTING TO DO THIS FOR YEARS BUT I DIDN'T KNOW IN THAT TIME WHAT A BLOG WAS OR CAN THIS BE A CAREER ETC AND THIS WAS YEARS AGO AND I'M VERY PASSIONATE IN EVERYTHING I DO AND MAINLY MY PHOTOGRAPHY AND I WILL GO MORE IN DETAIL IN ANOTHER POST LATER BUT I KNEW I WANTED AN AREA TO INSPIRE, CREATE AND SHOW LOVE TO OTHERS TO TELL PEOPLE THEY ARE WORTHY AND IF I CAN DO IT SO CAN YOU! I WAS SCARED BECAUSE I FELT ALONE EVEN THOUGH I WASN'T AND I FELT LIKE I NEEDED MORE MONEY TO DO THINGS BUT I LEARNED THAT YOU HAVE TO START SOME WHERE AND USE WHAT YOU GOT AND THAT INSPIRED ME TO BE MORE CREATIVE WHICH LIKE I SAID I WANTED TO CREATE AND I LOVE TO CREATE.
----I HAVE MY OWN OFFICE AND IT IS STILL IN PROGRESS OF DECORATING BUT A GIRL GOT BILLS SO I WAS IN SEARCH OF A PART-TIME JOB WITH A STUDIO OR ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER AND I'M HAPPY TO SAY I GOT IT AND I'M EXCITED BECAUSE I STILL GET TO DO WHAT I LOVE AND LEARNING FROM OTHERS. 
ALSO I AM BUILDING MY TEAM I ALREADY HAVE MY ASSISTANTS----AND ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS THAT EVEN IF ITS NOT WHAT THEY WANT TO DO FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIFE I UNDERSTAND AND I WANT TO GIVE THEM TIME TO DO THEIR OWN THING AND ALSO I WILL BE TEACHING THEM EVERYTHING I KNOW BECAUSE IF THEY DON'T HAVE THE EXPERIENCE I WANT THEM TO GAIN EXPERIENCE WITH ME. LIKE I SAID START SOME WHERE. I ALSO BELIEVE IN GOOD FOOD, MASSAGES, NAPS AND GOOD PAY HEY PEOPLE MATTER! I GOT YOU! DON'T WANT ANYONE STRESSING!
SO YA I THOUGHT IT SUCKS HOW MANY COMPANIES WELL BUSINESSES TURN DOWN PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE "EXPERIENCE" AND I SAY TO YOU DON'T GIVE UP, LOVE WHAT YOU DO AND IF SOMEBODY TELLS YOU THAT YOUR NOT QUALIFIED OR A NO FOR A JOB DON'T GET FRUSTRATED I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL ESPECIALLY BECAUSE YOU GOT BILLS AND SUCH BUT THINK OF IT THIS WAY--- YOUR MEANT FOR THE BEST THAT JOB WASN'T FOR YOU BECAUSE YOU DESERVE BETTER AND JUST CARRY NOW. THE LESS YOU WORRY THE MORE GOD OR THE UNIVERSE HOW YOU WANT TO SEE IT WILL PROVIDE FOR YOU.
SO YOUR PROBABLY LIKE BUT IT SUCKS AND IT'S STRESSFUL I GOT BILLS-----I GET IT TRUST ME I BECAME SO HURT AND FRUSTRATED TOO, THANKFULLY I HAVE GREAT FRIENDS WHO ENCOURAGE ME AND DON'T LET ME GIVE UP ON MY DREAMS WHO SNAP ME OUT OF MY FUNK. I BECAME SO STRESSED THAT IT WAS AFFECTING MY HEALTH AND MY SPIRIT. I THANK MY BESTIES ONE BEING MY MAMA! SHE'S THE BEST EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY SHE ALWAYS ENCOURAGED ME OVER THE PHONE WHILE I WAS IN TEARS. IT SUCKS YES BUT DON'T LET FEAR WHISPER IN YOUR EARS AND TELL YOU THAT YOUR NOT WORTHY OR EVEN TELL YOU WELL YOU DON'T HAVE EVERYTHING THEY WANTED, YOU CAN'T APPLY... STILL APPLY! WHICH LEADS ME TO THIS AND I KNOW I WROTE A BOOK RIGHT NOW BUT THIS IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE IF YOU DRESS RIGHT FOR AN INTERVIEW OR FOR WORK YOU FEEL GOOD AND CONFIDENT AND THAT CAN RUB OFF ON PEOPLE LIKE SHE DOESN'T HAVE ALL THE QUALITIES BUT I LOVED HOW SHE PRESENTED HERSELF. IT SHOUDLN'T JUST BE ABOUT LOOKS BUT WHAT SKILLS YOU HAVE AND WHAT YOU BRING BUT YOUR IMAGE IS YOUR RESUME. WHAT'S ONE THING PEOPLE SEE EVERYDAY---- YOU! SO HERE ARE A FEW OUTFITS I DID AND I ALSO HAVE WORE THESE TO SOME INTERVIEWS I DID---YES SOME DON'T REQUIRE YOU TO DRESS SUPER FANCY BUT BE YOUR BEST SELF. LOOK I LOVE HEELS BUT THE INTERVIEWS I WENT TO I DIDN'T TAKE HEELS SO GIRL RELAX YOU DON'T HAVE TO WEAR HEELS ALL THE TIME. I'M A FASHIONISTA BUT I ALSO LOVE COMFORT BECAUSE IF I'M WORKING LONG HOURS I DONT WANT TO BE UNCOMFORTABLE. I FEEL LIKE WHEN YOUR COMFORTABLE YOU GET THINGS DONE FASTER. YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO SPEND A LOT OF MONEY TO DRESS TO IMPRESS. YOU CAN FIND NICE PENCIL SKIRTS AND BLOUSES AT THE THRIFT STORE. ONE TIME I FOUND A EXPRESS SHIRT TAGS STILL ON FOR $6 GIRL IT WAS $60 ORIGINALLY AT EXPRESS BUT I FOUND IT AT THE THRIFT STORE TO THIS DAY I STILL HAVE IT. SO DON'T GIVE UP! I BELIEVE IN YOU BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY DON'T GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS AND BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! I WISH YOU THE BEST IN YOUR JOURNEY! ALSO REMEMBER YOU GO THROUGH SOME JOBS TO LEARN FOR YOU TO BE BETTER AND FOR YOUR DREAM JOB! ALSO I TOOK THESE PHOTOS IN MY OFFICE---I WILL POST ABOUT IT ONCE I'M DONE WHICH MIGHT BE A WHILE.
IF YOU DON'T GET THE JOB JUST REMEMBER THIS AT LEAST I LOOKED GOOD. #FLAWLESS
From my Heart to Yours
SENDING YOU LOTS OF LOVE & SWEETNESS
-AMANDA BERNADETTE
 A PENCIL SKIRT AND A BLACK VEST BLOUSE WITH POINTED FLATS. POINTED FLATS ARE THE BEST BECAUSE IF YOUR SHORT LIKE ME IT MAKES YOU LOOK TALLER.  YOU CAN WEAR THIS FOR AN INTERVIEW AND FOR WORK. YOU CAN PUT A BLAZER OVER THIS TOO
BLOUSE & SKIRT: THRIFT STORE
FLATS: OLD NAVY

 A BUTTON UP SHIRT & BLACK SLACKS IS A MUST YOU SHOULD OWN A FEW EVEN IF YOUR NOT WORKING IN AN OFFICE. ALSO BLACK AND NUDE FLATS. YOU CAN DO SO MANY OUTFITS WITH THIS. I GET MINE A LITTLE LOOSE(BLOUSE) BECAUSE I HAVE BIG BOOBS AND SOMETIMES MY BOOBS WANT TO MAKE AN APPEARANCE BUT I'M LIKE NO KEEPING IT CLASSY THE SHOW IS IN THE BEDROOM OKAY---RECENTLY DURING A PHOTO SHOOT HALF OF MY SHIRT WAS UNBUTTONED BECAUSE I DIDNT TAPE IT AND MY BRA WAS SHOLUCKILYUCKLY I WAS PHOTOGRAPHING ONE OF MY BESTIES AND THERE WAS NO ONE AROUND---WE LAUGHED---- IF THAT HAPPENS TO YOU JUST PUT DOUBLE SIDED TAPE WHERE THE BUTTONS OPEN.

  GET A SKIRT THAT'S SHORT BUT NOT TO SHORT BECAUSE SOMETHING MIGHT FALL ON THE FLOOR AND YOU HAVE TO PICK IT UP DONT BE THAT GIRL WHOS UNDIES ARE SHOWING OR CANT EVEN GET DOWN TO GET WHAT DROPPED SO KEEP IT A GOOD LENGTH. THIS WAS THE SHIRT THAT OPENED HAHAHA....BUT YA GET A SHORT SLEEVE AND A LONG SLEEVE  BUTTON UP SHIRT.

  I LOVE MY SLACKS SO I GOT DIFFERENT LENGTHS FOR DIFFERENT SEASONS. YOU CAN WEAR ALL BLACK WITH A TOUCH OF COLOR. WITH THAT COLOR THEY WILL REMEMBER YOU LIKE HMMM THAT GIRL WITH THE RED BLAZER. THAT'S HOW YOU CAN STAND OUT FROM EVERYONE ELSE WITH A POP OF COLOR. ALSO GET A BLACK AND NUDE BLAZER. YOU CAN EVEN WEAR A BLAZER FOR YOUR REGULAR DAYS WITH JEANS TOO.

  I WORE SOMETHING SIMILAR TO AN INTERVIEW PROCESS AND THE MAIN BOSS CAME IN AND TOLD ME MAN YOU LOOK LIKE THE VICE PRESIDENT! SO DRESS LIKE YOUR THE FUTURE VP OR PRESIDENT---LIKE A MILLION BUCKS. SO THIS BLOUSE WAS A LITTLE SEE THROUGH BUT REMEMBER TO KEEP IT CLASSY I DIDNT PUT AN UNDERSHIRT BECAUSE I WAS SO TIRED AND SWEATING AND DIDN'T WANT TO GET IT--I'M JUST BEING REAL WITH YOU. SO THE TYPICAL BUSINESS-Y LOOK IS THIS HEELS,PENCIL SKIRT AND A BUTTON UP SHIRT AND A BLAZER. IF YOU WANT TO KEEP IT COMFY WEAR CUTE POINTY FLATS.

  YOU CAN ALSO WEAR A DRESS( THIS ONE IS A LITTLE SHORT) BUT IT STILL WORKS BECAUSE IT'S LONG SLEEVE, SIMPLE BUT STILL DOESN'T HIDE YOUR BODY NOT THAT YOU HAVE TO SHOW IT. I AM BLESSED WITH BIG BOOBS AND BOOTY AND I DON'T SAY IT TO PUT ANYONE DOWN IT'S JUST WHAT I GOT( GOT IT FROM MY MOM AND GRANDMA LOL) AND SOMETIMES I FORGET I HAVE THEM AND HIDE MYSELF BUT YOU GOT TO EMBRACE YOU TOO BUT KEEP IT CLASSY AND PROFESSIONAL. I KNOW IT GETS COLD IN OFFICES SO WEAR A LIGHT SWEATER LIKE THIS IT KEEPS THINGS A LITTLE MORE PROSESSIONAL INSTEAD OF JUST BEING A GOING OUT DRESS. IF YOU HAVE TO WEAR HEELS MOSTLY BUY SOME STRAP MID HEELS LIKE ABOVE THEY ARE SO COMFY AND CUTE AT THE SAME TIME. AND WEAR A TOTE BAG TO CARRY YOUR LUNCH OR YOUR RESUME TOO. ACTUALLY ALWAYS HAVE EXTRA RESUMES WITH YOU AND IF YOUR GOING OUT WITH YOUR GIRLS AFTER THEN SWEATER OFF, KEEP A SMALL BAG IN YOUT TOTE OR YOUR CAR LOL AND YOUR GOOD TO GO!

 I CAN'T TELL YOU ENOUGH HOW MUCH I LOVE SLACKS LIKE I CAN DRESS IT UP AND DOWN. WITH A STATEMENT SWEATER YOU CAN STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD TOO. YOU CAN TUCK IT IN OR LEAVE IT OUT IT'S UP TO YOU. I LIKE IT TUCKED IN TO SHOW MY CURVES HEHEHE. YOU CAN WEAR IT WITH A TRENCH COAT OR A BLAZER TOO.
