My current job is laying me off after Christmas due to cutbacks. I've been applying for new jobs and most of what I'm finding are office type jobs where you have to wear semi-nice or business casual type stuff.
I'm allowed to wear jeans and t-shirts at my current job, so aside from a pair of slacks and two skirts, I don't own anything nice enough. My budget is very small and Ann Taylor Loft is kind of expensive as is. Do you think it counts as appropriate attire?
Here are some examples of their products: link

Honestly I would shop around. There's plenty of cheaper places to buy nice professional clothes. Its all about knowing what to pair with what. You can buy a nice, formal skirt for cheap and then pair it with a shirt and blazer or find nice black pants for cheap as well. Just shop around.0
