New Clothes for the New Job!

So I went and bought a whole new "starter" wardrobe for my new job. At my current job, we have been allowed to wear jeans and basically whatever we want for the last almost 2 years. My new job is business casual and then jeans on Friday.

I went to JC Penney's because they have an awesome petites department. I am just short of 5 foot tall, so hardly any pants fit me off the rack, except for JC Penney's petite. So, I ended up with 3 pairs of slacks, a gray stripe, a tan and a chocolate. I already had a pair of black slacks. I ended up with probably 6 shirts. I have several shirts already so that should do me. I also got a nice wool knee length coat. I want to look nice for my new job, so I figured I needed a nice coat to wear. It was $250 on sale for $89.99 with all the sales going on. I also got 1 pair of black heels. In total I spent $300. I consider that a pretty good deal for all the clothes that I got. I probably won't shop for clothes for awhile.
