Job Interview, wearing black skirt suit- do you like these shoes?
not sure I'd wear them myself either, but that's quite personal. I don;t think they'd look "wrong". they're smart, they're black, they're not overly glam, they're elegant, they're not open-toed, they're not flat, they're not too high.
I am probably never going to wear them again, I'll give them to a charity shop or to a friend (or to any of you lot if you want them- Twig?). I just need something passable that I can wear for a couple of hours. I don't like them, but I only like DMs!
Yes, dress code is that there is no dress code. But I have to look smart for the interview, psychologically I couldn't wander in wearing DMs and my patchwork homemade skirt. I'll wear them when I get the job! (btw, they all know me at the library, I worked there part time for 2 years while I qualified- they're used to the folkie eclectic look I bring to my work).
Okay, Twig, you clearly love them, they're yours...

agree with twiglett - if they know you, why not wear a smart version of your normal stuff? e.g. floaty (but maybe not patchwork) skirt, nice flat shoes e.g. ballerinas? nice top but not a suit jacket? it is summer as well, so no point turning up all sweaty - suits can be v hot.
