Outfit : Burnt Orange Dress


The Interview


Dressing for a job interview is always full of potential minefields- especially if you're interviewing for a fashion orientated job. You want to look like you know what you're talking about, have an original style, smart, but not a slave to trends. A few weeks ago I had an interview for the position of office/web assistant at a fashion website and I wore this....

Dress: Warehouse
Cardigan: Primark
Watch: Next
Tights: Tabio
Wedges: New Look
Bag: Charity Shop



I think the dress showed off my personal style while the black add-ons kept the look smart. Polka dot tights were to add a little fun and to keep warm, (this was back when summer was more winter!!), and I thought the raffia style bag was a chic finishing touch.

Those of you that follow me on Twitter will already know that I got the job!! I have been working towards a job in ecommerce for a while now and am so happy to finally have gained myself a position in the industry. To top it off the staff at the office are absolutely lovely and have really made me feel welcome :) The job is in London so I'm going to start looking for places soon- if anyone knows of any rooms going in North London, (I'm thinking Finsbury Park or somewhere on the Piccadilly line), do let me know!

I have dreamt of this career and moving to London for years and cannot quite believe it's happening now! So incredibly happy. Thank you to everyone who tweeted me congratulations and those who have supported me- means so much. On that note- I am officially up to 100 followers! Which means I will be planning another giveaway soon!

What do you wear to interviews??
