The Interview.

Ah, the dreaded job interview. It's the feeling that comes after the joy when you get an invitation, it's the feeling of dread when you realise just how much is riding on a simple conversation with a manager. As you might have read in previous posts, university wasn't something I wanted to pursue after college, and I managed to get a job interview yesterday with a very very well known high street fashion store. Anyhow, 'ere's what I wore!


I thought I was alright with fashion, although I'm not the bees knees, I thought I had a fair knowledge of what was 'in' and what was 'Autumn/Winter' - until I was faced with having to be bang on trend and smart and stylish all in one go. I decided to go with a structured tartan print, slightly cropped shirt from Dorothy Perkins - is it just me, or do DP's come out with some right little gems sometimes? It's not all old lady clothes, people! I paired it with a leather look A-Line skirt from Topshop, and was somewhat worried the textures would clash and be too much, but once the look was all pulled together, I quite liked it.


To bring out the colours in the tartan, I decided to go for burgundy/dark red accessories, with a pop of blue in the shoe. Absolutely fell in love with these chunky chelsea boots by Henry Holland, and did actually end up blowing ALL my birthday money the same day I bought these, mostly on more shoes. I also wore MAC's Viva Glam III lippy to complete the look, there will be a post coming soon (it's my very first MAC bullet, shock horror! Bad beauty blogger). Also, can we just appreciate how gorgeous this bag is?! I do love a good structured bag, and this is my little New Look bargain. The gold hardware makes it feel very luxurious and in my opinion, a lot more expensive than it actually is. Love love love it. 

As for the interview, well I suppose we'll just have to wait and see. I was told that if I was successful, I'd receive a call today or tomorrow - needless to say I will be waiting patiently with my phone glued to my side. I'll keep you updated!
