I am shortly starting a new role on promotion - I will be working in a very senior role in central government. I need to look smart but not necessarily a suit - I prefer skirts and dresses, and slightly quirky in cut or colour, ideally with a matching jacket. I need to be taken seriously (I am quite young to be at this grade) but not be a faceless bureaucrat!
I am a size ten but need knee length and - ideally - sleeves. Blonde with blue eyes.
Budget is tricky - I won't get my pay rise through immediately, but could go to £150-£200 a dress. Help me please!
