I posted here a while ago looking for advise for an interview. I took it and got myself a lovely suit and managed to bag the job
However now i have to purchase a whole new work wardrobe as my current position is super casual (converse and hoodys casual). So i have about 400 to spend which needs to include shoes I can walk in and enough clothes for a week. I currently had 2 pairs of nice black trousers, 2 nice blouses and 2 cardigans. And thats it.......
I have chunky calves and like flat shoes (not the ideal situation) but I would like to get a couple of nice dresses.
Thank you in advance if anyone has any suggestions
Dorothy Perkins dresses are cheap and will see you through unless its a very corporate environment. I wear mine with Clarks hamble oaks and 120 black dernier tights. Their billie and blossom range come to knee height on me (5ft6) but when I buy from their own range I normaly buy from the tall section otherwise they are midthigh.
Jaim, it sounds great. But too much of a good thing.... as a result I'm a 35 married mother of 2 who looks like I should be smoking behind the bike sheds .I find it so hard to dress as a grown up. It should be noted I do have a very senior role.
