CorpGoth- Mid month status report: Fitting in at my new workplace

I visited the parental meeting at the school I'll be working at last week. I didn’t have to say anything important, except showing myself and do a short presentation, it went well. I had roamed around the stores for some professional clothes the day before and went home soaked in sweat, oh how I hate to shop clothes. I call the fitting booths, faschism booths because all the disadvantages of the body appear in full drama in the merciless light. Along with this post Corp Goth monthly status report is very fitting for showing what I shoped for the parental meeting.
My Restyle rib cage bag was changed to something so plain it almost is invisible. It’s also another vanishing bag that transforms to a black hole once you put something in it, if it had the colour blue, I could say bigger on the inside. I have ordered a LED-light to be inserted in it from Johan but I don't know when he will have the time. It is made of real black leather,  I’m a carnivore and prefer real leather that lasts longer.
 It’s only a glimpse as I didn’t have a tripod or a photographer, but I hope that you get the idea of the jacket I finally found after running around the whole city, so many cardigans and chanel jackets but no suit jackets (not in my size anyway). I found this one at H&M it is tailored at the back and straight at the front. The fab thing with this one is that the shoulders didn’t went sloppy on my narrow and sloppy ones, it’s usually the big problem with fitting. I also found a long sleeved midnight blue top, it looks slim but hides my belly, it has fake leather pads on the shoulders. I will definitely buy the other colours of this one. The necklace was a gift from Johan bought at ebay.
 The shoes of the brand Ara are also a bit plain but oh how my feet loves them. The heel is 2 inches and very comfortable, perfect to walk and stand in. The toes shape reminds a bit of Fluevogs ergonomically shape and the leather is thin and smooth, clings to your foot like a glove.
 I bought other clothes but that will be another post. 
The autumn leaves are shifting colour now and I tried to fold a rose from maple leaves, it was very easy.
I harvested 3 of my pumpkins the other week, they are heavy and a hollow sound is heard when knocking on the bottom. Let there be pumpkin muffins, soups, pies etc and lovely Jack’O lanterns!! Still no frost even if we have reached the other half of September.

  2. Pumporna är så fina! Vad glad jag är att de växte så bra hos dig! Jag tror framför allt att den beige kan bli en bra matpumpa.

    Torka av dem så fort som möjligt, och ha dem gärna i jämn, inte för varm temperatur. Helst inte utomhus om det regnar.

    1. De ligger på en bänk i källaren nu. Jag har fortfarande 3 pumpor kvar ute.

  3. I'll head to H&M soon to try this blazer style, it looks so good on you! Seems -although you hate clothes shopping- you really know how to look edgy professional! And I like your new handbag, sleek and expensive looking! I don't like black lining either, I never find my black purse or black calender in there...

    1. I hope you'll find it or something similar. It's great that they have ordinary sizes up to 46 (xl).

  4. I can relate to the agony of those faschism booths! I am glad you found something you like.

  5. "Fascism booths" Ha ha ha! That is SO true! I walk into a dressing room feeling okay, then I look in the mirror and... Yikes! Who is that hideous creature?! :P I'm glad you found a jacket you like, and I look forward to seeing the other outfits. :)

    I love the rose from maple leaves. Very cool!

    1. The rose is very simple to do; just fold the leaf on the middle and roll. I believe I used 6-5 leaves.

  6. Det må vara "tråkiga" kläder, men snyggt iallafall! Gillar ugglan. ;)

    Jag trodde det där var en ros innan jag läste texten - jättefint!
    Och vilka pumpor! Våra blev 10 cm stora -.-

    1. Sommaren startade väldigt kallt så jag lade över ett fönster innan de hade växt sig alltför stora.

  7. The clothes look great! I too know the feeling of getting all sweaty and irritated when trying on clothes. I never try anything on these days and hope for the best lol!

  8. Oh, I hardly ever try on clothes in the shop, I absolutely hate it, but am glad you found some comofrtable things to wear for work.

    Your maple-leaf rose is bloody brilliant, I love it!

    Gorgeous pumpkins! I can't wait to see all the delicious things you make with them, and, of course, your lanterns. :)

  9. Du är säkert jättefin i de där kläderna. H&M har mycket som är snyggt tycker jag,
    annars handlar jag nog mest kläder på second hand.

  10. Shopping for clothes and trying them on in those awful fitting rooms seems to be universally dreaded and loathed! I hate it too - "Fascism Booths" is right! But you picked up some great stuff, and it looks fab on you. :)

    I adore your maple-leaf rose, what a gorgeous thing to do with Autumn leaves!

    And your pumpkins are too cute! Looking forward to seeing pics of the Jack-O-Lanterns. :)

  11. I'm very delayed in sharing my congratulations on your new job!! It sounds like a wonderful opportunity. I love the details of this outfit - just corporate enough, but still loaded with personality. I'm looking forward to seeing your new work wardrobe evolve (hope you will continue sharing more outfit posts with us!).

  12. I love H&M, especially their jackets! And I prefer real leather too. Your owl necklace is fantastic!
