Trust me, I’ve been there. When I first started working in PR, my salary was a joke. I BARELY made enough to eat cover my living expenses much less go shopping. The times I shopped, I bought my clothing from fast-fashion stores or from the “affordable” department at Nordstrom (you know which one I’m talking about). Never – never – never – ever designer.
I’d skip by designer and think to myself, “one day I’ll upgrade my wardrobe… hopefully by the time I’m 30.”
