Busting out my corporate executive pose:
blazer: found in my high school's costume closet -- skirt: thrift -- shirt: thrift -- shoes: Pour la Victoire via Loehmann's
Today I got to pretend to be a serious grown up! I had my final presentation in my postmodernism/writing/oral communications/research class, and part of the assignment was to dress nicely. One of my classmates showed up in a tux, just to be tongue-in-cheek. Since it was supposed to be formal, I went out and bought nylons since my skirt is already informally short. These nylons were the closest I was able to get to my natural paleness, but they were a little too tan still. I am absurdly pale.
The paper I presented today is about postmodern notions of authenticity and identity as seen through the case study of thrift and vintage fashions. That's right; I did a serious assignment about thrift style. Remember that survey I posted up here a few weeks ago about thrifting? I used quotes from you!
My presentation is a solid 11 minutes, but I've uploaded the whole thing to share with you in the (vain?) hope that someone out there will watch it ;) Sorry you can't read the slides... they're all just words anyway.
Today's title comes from The Clash -- Career Opportunities. Seemed appropriate given how much today felt like playing academic. And I've got summer internships on the mind. Hmm.
