Well ladies…I've made it to the final stage of interviewing for my dream job (there are only so many dream jobs available for those of us without university education). I made it past the initial HR telephone interview, was short listed to those interviewed in person, and made it past that stage to now have a one-on-one "informal conversation" with the President & CEO of the Hospital where I am seeking to move to. I was told a suit was definitely not necessary since this was very informal.
Of course, I still wanted to look professional but add a wee bit of spunk. I started with my BR black sheath dress and topped it with my purple Amber Sun jacket (love the retro sensibilities of this jacket). I then added purple tights to echo the jacket and add a bit of personality. Plus we're in the stormy deepfreeze now and these tights are very warm. Because the interview is at a different hospital than the one I work at now, I will be venturing outside so warm but dressy boots were required - I went for my old and trusty knee high Clarks. I chose my black/white leather handbag and silver wedding band and bangle for jewelry. I am also wearing the necklace my hubby gave me for my 50th so I could feel his support with me. When I step outside I will have my berry cashmere coat and white scarf/white gloves on.
So what do you think? Does this evoke confident, professional but a bit of an individual kind of style? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
BTW you sure can see how wonky my left knee is in in that second photo. My goodness…
