- Like some sundresses I got rid of because they were strapless.Everyone here sells them but not like mine...I want THOSE sundresses.I can have them made but havent gone through the hassle.
- my portable hood attachment to dry my hair via a handheld blow dryer. Though not used all the time,it came in handy and as it weighed nothing much I should have brought it.
- more shoes.I wear a size 9 and they consider it a big size.Even when you DO find your size, it isnt always comfortable. Its best to bring shoes from home.ESPECIALLY if you are a shoe person.
- If you have favorite outfits-unless they are streetwalker worthy-I say bring them.You can wear a shawl,scarve,or jacket to cover your arms.When not at work its ok to show them (or your legs),though if you become heavily acclimated,you may not feel right doing so.
Youll also find yourself in places like Lulus and Carrefour. I get clothes from both but after realizing the quality of C's clothes,I dont get them from there anymore. Lulus is ok depending on what youre getting. If you have the money to buy clothes here and want to pack school items, I say get rid of most,if not all of your clothes. You dont need them sitting at home,esp when others need clothes :-).
If you need to buy clothes for working here,I say buy them here.If you already have them, I would say pack some of them but also pack what you really like because you wont be living at work.Also,consider wearing an abaya to work. They can be cooler to wear depending on the type and its easy to just throw on shorts and a shirt and put the abaya over it and go.Saves on dressing time,and also $$ for buying clothes that you may not wear otherwise.
FYI,your abayas dont have to be black either.Mine wont be next year!
I think this is it in regards to clothes I think.Save up in preparation for the ride!
