When I woke up this morning I opened one eye and thought to myself, ‘please let today be Noday’! What is “Noday”? “Noday” in my mind is a day where there is absolutely nothing that I have to do. That rarely happens in my life, even when I am on vacation :( Anyway, the next best thing to “Noday” is usually Friday- which just so happens to be today! WHOO HOO!
I did a post a few weeks ago Interview Attire: Idea Number 1. Today’s post is a follow-up to that one. As I mentioned, when it comes to interviews, everyone usually opts for a navy blue or black suit. What if you do not have a suit? Do you have to go for separates? In my opinion: No! There are other options.
I wore this dress to the interview that landed me my current job.
If you’ve been following this blog for any period of time, you know that I bat for team bold color. Most days at the office, I am drenched in bright color (like here and here). On an interview however, I would not recommend bold color from head to toe. It takes time to learn the personality of your office, and what type of attire is accepted and or tolerated. Because I am partial to the bold and bright, I make a conscious effort to step outside of my style box. To do so, I opt for muted colors and subtle prints. This dress is one example.
Its silk (which is also a personal favorite) and has somewhat of a vintage feel. You did know that I am also a vintage fanatic right?! Okay, great!
I added neutral print shoes and grey fishnets. In true vintage fashionista style I topped the outfit with a vintage coat, which in my mind goes with everything and is a wardrobe essential.
Shoes: Steve Madden
Handbag: Michael Kors
Have a great weekend; I’ll be chatting with you soon ;)
