|thrifted skirt from Goodwill, Gap tank top, Forever 21 bolero and earrings,|
Montego Bay wedges from Payless
I was wearing this outfit while working at Gap and had a customer tell me I didn't look very "Gap". I wanted to snap at her, "What does it matter what I'm wearing?", but of course I didn't. Instead, I laughed it off and said, "Well, I like to mix my thrifted finds with my retail purchases. At least I'm wearing a Gap tank top!" It got me thinking about the sad fact that I'm expected to look a certain way at work. I don't have a problem with looking put-together and professional, but I'm not OK with being expected to have a certain "look". It just makes me feel weird.
Please tell me if I'm overreacting.
