I’ve had quite a few interviews over the past two weeks. Some were phone interviews and four were face to face interviews. I wore the same outfit to all of my first interviews, which I’ll show you another time, but this is what I wore to my final interview, after which I got the job!
[Shirt- Calvin Klein from Macy’s ($40, early B-day gift from Mom); Jacket – Torrid (Xmas gift); Pants – Alfani from Macy’s ($55); Shoes- Chinese Laundry (borrowed from Mom); Earrings – Made by Me; Bag – NY&Co ($14); Sunglasses – Target ($13)]
Sorry about the sunglasses but I had to get some quick photos before I changed into my “celebrating that I got the job” outfit and it was so bright outside. This was my second interview, just a meet and greet with the V.P. of the company, who wanted to talk to me in person before they extended the offer. It’s only a temporary, part time position but I’m super excited about it. Here is hoping that this leads to something more permanent and full time.
About the outfit, I only had an hour to get ready for this interview, it was sort of a last minute thing, so I threw this together real quick. Since it was only an informal meeting I wanted to wear something a bit more bright and cheerful so I grabbed this Calvin Klein top that I picked up during my crazy shopping spree last week. Nothing too fancy really, except the ruched-sleeved blazer from Torrid. This is particularly good for me because jacket sleeves have a tendency to be too long on me.
The craziest part of this outfit is the bag. Okay, so the bag isn’t crazy but I did get it suck in a Metro train door the other day. Seriously! I was following this elderly lady into the train and she didn’t move far enough into the Metro and the doors closed on my bag. I had to wrestle it free before the train started moving with all of the other passengers looking on. When I finally freed it, my fellow passengers cheered me on, which made me feel even worse. But I got the job! So I guess sometimes you need to get some purses caught in doors to get things done, or something.
