The job is catering assistant and will be smart casual.

I'm going shopping this weekend to Tesco (idk if their clothing is any good for work stuff?) and Meadowhall which has these ladieswear shops

Budget is about £60, I need skirt/trousers, maybe a blouse but can possibly use something I've already got or a smart work dress I could wear with a cardigan, tights and heels.

I'm 5'0, will wear 4.5inch courts probably, size 10 on top with small (34b) boobs, size 12/14 on bottom depending which shop. Naturally long nails (what colour is appropreate?) Have long brown hair (up or down?) and will wear natural make up.

All ideas much appreciated.

I am not working in catering but was told that nails for interview should only be painted transparent.

next have a few basic suits that come in at £60 you could wear a blouse or even fitted bright colored t shirt under?

Dress and cardi sounds gone if you don't want to spend money on a suit. As long as you are smart clean and tidy then you will be fine. Make sure shoes are polished though wink

I would say no nail varnish, but make sure nails are clean! Either with hair, whatever you feel comfortable with?
