Nina Garcia’s Look Book

What to Wear for Every Occasion
by Nina Garcia


The bookstore where I worked for the past 11 years recently closed. So I am embarking on a new job search. The other day while fretting over having to update my resume, it occurred to me that not only do I not have an outfit to interview in, my current wardrobe is only appropriate for a Starbucks employee. Because of the dress code at my former job, my closet is full of black polo style shirts and khakis. Right now the only social invitation I can accept from you is one where I’ll be making lattes at your dinner party. (And I can, because I am Starbucks/Seattle’s Best trained).


It’s hard to know where to start when your wardrobe has so many holes in it, so I’m turning to my library of fashion books to help me out. I chose this one for no other reason than it was the first that I laid my eyes on. While it really does cover what’s appropriate for certain occasions (job interview, a Netflix night, volunteering, etc.), it also gives some pointers on the appropriate etiquette in those situations. 


It wasn’t very helpful in setting up a core wardrobe, but once I have that in place, I will refer back to this on how to put it together. And as always, the illustrations by Ruben Toledo are divine!

  1. No help with other fashion books, but you can't go wrong with a blazer and a sheath dress. Dresses make getting dressed for work so easy and a blazer covers a multitude of sins…or tattoos. lol

  2. @CarlaF Thank you so much?
    @Shawnta That sheath dress is a good idea! I am going to try and sew my new wardrobe, so we'll see how that goes.
