The dreaded cheap Next suit ;)

I have NO work clothes.

I have a last minute interview this week with a temping agency. I won't have any money until next week, so I need to get something on account. I can't afford to spend masses anyway. I have petite legs and a normal body. A Next suit, that has trousers in the petite range, seems the best bet. We're probably talking grey or black. Cheap, cheerful, and will be delivered on time.

But what to wear underneath the jacket? I can't find any blouses I like, and collars don't really suit me. My colouring is autumn so really crisp white, or pastel isn't for me, but I suppose it would do. Would something like this be wrong?

Or just a plain top?

Please find me something, please. I need to order tonight, or tomorrow. I did pop to Tesco earlier and it's all sale stuff, I'll do a run to Sainsburys tomorrow morning, just in case there's a suitable shirt.

That top would be lovely......

YY to that pink top.

Although I would say that it'd go better with a skirt suit.

I did think about a skirt but couldn't see one I liked, I'm not over weight but pear shaped and look silly in anything pencil shaped.

This would suit me but looks a bit too full for an interview, an not so versatile afterwards.

Seeing as I'm in the middle of an awful period, it's not a good day to do clothes shopping grin can I go to an interview buried in a snuggie?
