Ok, I am totally in the same boat as you and I found something really cool this year:
Amazon Virtual Experiences - Intro To Style
So this woman owns a boutique clothing store and she will do a virtual session with you where she asks you about what you wear, body type, hair color, etc. and then picks out a bunch of outfits and helps you style them! She is SUPER nice and there is no pressure to buy anything (although you can if you want to!)
I had a lot of doubts going into it, but I figured what the hell, $20. It was AWESOME. She did my colors so I know what looks good, she picked out a ton of outfits I actually liked, and I learned enough so that the next time I went out with friends I did not feel like I looked like a homeless bag lady just by putting together stuff from my own closet.
The only down side is she does not have a wide range of sizes. Nothing she showed me would really fit as I'm also overweight, which was kind of a bummer as there were pieces I liked. The clothes are on the pricey side but not outrageous. But just having someone there I could ask questions and get a gist of what would be easy to put together helped me a lot!
I appreciate the concern, but it's just not how the authorised worker permit works. It's for authorised, not essential workers — otherwise we'd be asking the same questions of every barista or Maccas employee.
I've covered in detail in previous comments how I keep myself safe, but to repeat:
- I drive in/avoid public transport
- I only film these in to the CBD when other work requires me there
- I film a bunch of videos at once. In total I've been to the CBD three times since starting this endeavour
- I follow the rules of the permit, which means I stay within my authorised work area, I do these solo, and I stay out of doors entirely
I'm doing virtual tours in lockdown, but only for Americans - it's a pilot program being run by Amazon:
As soon as lockdown lifts, we'll be out doing physical tours one again.
Believe it or not, I actually have a Victorian work permit to do the and live streamed tours for Americans via our client, Amazon. [link]
I've been following all the rules when I'm not at work though.
