Next Friday I am going to go into a room with a copy of my thesis and let two professors tear it apart while I gibber and shake. And then hopefully they're going to tell me I have not totally failed my PhD.
Customarily I believe people wear suits to do this. Or at least something very smart.
I hate trouser suits. I look an idiot in trousers.
I would love to find something that looked a bit 1940s/vintagy - something I would actually want to wear, as opposed to 'corporate uniform' style. Like, if Vivienne Westwood made skirt suits. Which she doesn't, AFAIK. It's allowed to be a bit quirky. At this stage, desperation and the large credit card I've just been sent mean you could probably push my budget quite a long way if you show me the pretties.
I am 5'4ish, size 12/14 with about D/DD bust and a bit of tummy. Dark hair and eyes.
Right, so given that the lovely pinstripe dress won't turn up in time, and when I rang VW at Bicester they said they have jackets but no suits, I am thinking of following the suggestion for a nice dress, maybe with a smart jacket over it.
Questions (if I may, I know I am being so picky!):
- when you wear a smart jacket over a dress, do you think they ought to match in colour? - Is black too boring?
