My first "on the books" job was at the record store in the mall! It was great. This was the era of Pretty in Pink and let's just say I was one with Molly Ringwald hacking my clothes up back then as I do now. One of the proms I went to my date rocked the "Ducky" outfit too.
Next I was a waitress because there was a lot more money to be made in food service.
Then I even did a stint as a bank teller. Can you believe that one?! I think the branch was on 61st and Lexington in NYC. I totally sported the sneakers with dress outfit like Melanie Griffith in Working Girl for my commute.
OK that's the blast from the past. Now onto Crafty Blogger links in the here and now!
