Sadly, friends, I have to take back what I said about the fashion show. I'm sorry!!!! I even went to Target just now to see if they had any dress skirts/slacks to give myself more options, but they stank up the joint with their selection. Which is to say, lack of a selection. I'm sure I'll have a wardrobe crises in the near future and this blog will be the FIRST place I come to!
After trying on two different dresses with my suit jacket, there is a clear winner, so much so that I don’t need to show you the other one. I feel better in this one, I look better, it looks better. It’s a little more straight-laced than I usually wear for interviews, as I like to have a little flair (ha, Office Space) but I think it’ll be okay for this organization, they’re more on the professional-dress side than the laid-back kind of non-profit.
Yes, that mirror is clean now (it's the mirror, not the dress. I wouldn’t even want the evidence to see the light of day but it’s the best shot of the outfit. I cleaned it right after I looked at this picture. For reals.
I DO still need opinions on a couple things:
1) Is there a way to incorporate any sort of color/personality into this outfit? I could wear a colored tank-top underneath the dress, and it’ll peek through the v-neck part. I just don't want to be too severe, but maybe I'm not, you tell me!
2) Should I wear black hose/tights? Basically I’ll be in all-black. But I have nude hose as well. I have to wear something because it’s FREEZING out, and I’m pretty sure it’s appropriate for interviews. (Shoes are close toed so I don’t have to worry about any toe situation, thankfully)
3) Hair? HALP!
