so, i have a few job interviews lined up and my library blues have led me to spend (far too many) hours scrolling the pages of Toppers, drooling over the posh garms which my, already non-existent, loan won't quite cover. i have this mental image of myself, strutting into the interview completely calm and collected, looking like i've leapt from the pages of Vogue. in reality, i'll probably have lipstick on my teeth, shake the interviewers hand for that moment too long or have several shirt buttons undone without realising. these things tend to happen to me.
i absolutely adore the wide leg trousers that seem to be everywhere at the moment. i say everywhere, but i've never seen them on anyone in real life; only ever on bloggers and in magazines. this leads me to think they look horrendous on 'ordinary' folk like me. i think i'm going to go for a tailored cigarette pant with a crisp, white shirt. the patterned trouser will hopefully allow a bit of personality to come through, yet the white shirt keeps it formal and interview appropriate. really, this post is a bit of a plea for advice - help me please, fashionistas.
