Dressed for success...

Sunday, November 14, 2010

So I did a trial run today on the interview outfit and I'm attaching pictures so that you all can have a good visual of me when you send me your wonderful spark energy on Wednesday. The interview is at 1:30 pm in Denver, I think that is mountain time so whatever your time zone please make a note, cause I need all your love on this one.

My thoughts, and feedback is welcome, maybe I should try to get the cuffs shortened tomorrow on the jacket or does anyone else but me notice? I bought a spanx at Target-all they had were med and xlarge, the med doesn't really fit over my head but the xlg is kind of baggy at the bottom, not tight. Should I go out of town tomorrow to track down the right size or am I obsessing here?
Does it look too drab, should I add a scarf for color? I'm not really a suit girl but this is a corporate job and I want to look appropriate. My husband thought it looked great but he's a guy and I need women's opinions here. One of the people I'm interviewing with is a woman VP, and that is all I know about her.

I'm good to go on my company info and ready to rock the interview, just help out, how do I look really?

    You look great! No need for the spanx thing!
    Dress as you feel comfortable, that's the best way to go.
    I like color, and accessories, but that's me.
    When I was practicing law, I used to dress appropriately, but always wore something bold -a scarf, jewellery or a purse!- that said: She means business, but she can take risks and have fun!
    Now, working at the gallery, I dress as a reformed lawyer: elegant but fun!!
    Best thing: be yourself. If they are smart: they'll hire you even if you are dressed in sweatpants emoticon
    Good luck and keep us posted,

    Ahem. Where's Susan?

    You look so professional. This is just my two cents, but I wouldn't spanx myself for anybody. You want to be able to breathe during the interview. Besides, why spend the money and start a habit you'll be wanting to break!

    Girl, you know I will be praying so hard. Go in there and knock their socks off!

    Love You!

    Oh Thelma, you look great. You are going to knock them dead. I am so excited for you. Good luck on that interview, and lots of prayers heading your way. I think Denver is 3 hours behind us, so that would be 4:30 my time. Anxious to hear all about it. emoticon

    I think it looks great. Cuffs are a little long, but I only noticed because you said something. I don't think anyone is going to be measuring. Just be yourself and sell them on you. You will do great, you need to be comfortable with yourself. I don't think color is a necessity unless you will feel better with it.

    I agree, you look very professional. If you wanted to add a scarf for some color, try it out. I think a neat and professional appearance is necessary, however, I also agree that the focus should be on you and your personality. Be confident of your abilities and let yourself shine through, and you'll do fine. I know it can be nerve-wracking but try not to over-analyze.

    You will be in my thoughts and prayers...go to Denver and knock their socks off!

    You look very professional. Don't get carried away with accessories. You want the focus to be on you, not what you are wearing, unless you are applying to Vouge or Maxim.
    Keep your handshake firm, not limp, not death grip and make eye contact.
    Good Luck. emoticon
