Interview outfit

(11 Posts)

I've just found out I've got an interview next week. I really want the job and need to feel positive when I go.

I am currently making do with work clothes post maternity but don't have anything that I think is suitable.

Can anyone suggest something? I am short and fat. Size 20. Brown hair. Prefer dresses. Needs to be smartish-men all wear suits.

What's your budget?

too dressy? The model is 5'11" so it would be a better length. The usual pin-the-wrap-to-the-bra trick would need to be applied as usual.
too formal?
great cut

(teathers, I'd appreciate your opinion here if you would be so kind! <cheeky fucker>)

Don't really want to spend more than £250 (for a dress and jacket).

Lettuce I like the black peplum one-would that highlight post DC belly? Also like the terracotta one but I am large of nork so not sure about the neckline, same for the peplum one too. Maybe a V neck?

tethers don't like the taupe colour may order the black as a fall back.

LOVE the blue, what jacket would you wear with it?

Thank you soooo much. With DD1 (2.4) and DD2 (8mths) I really can't go shopping so this is invaluable!

Ooh, nice budget smile

Will look for a coordinating jacket for the blue dress.

Would you consider a suit?

Are you an 18-20 or a 20-22?

this could work with the blue dress- would have to be the exact same blue though.

bargain suit

tethersend Sat 11-May-13 10:11:08

Navy skirt and jacket which I'd wear with cream shell top and tan heels/bag...

Green jacket or here would look fab with blue dress, but maybe not conservative enough for interview...

Dress coat with black dress...
