Fashion fabulous No. 3

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I had a job interview on Monday. I didn’t really know what to wear so decided to have a play around with what I had, instead of going to my old fall-back black dress.

This is what I ended up with:

It’s not a very good picture, but you get the idea.

I started off with my high-waisted black stretch skirt from Farmers and added one of my long-sleeved t-shirts from Glassons. Whenever I wear a skirt or dress, I have to put either pantihose or leggings with it. I just can’t stand wearing a skirt by itself. So I pulled out one of my new pairs of We Love Colours tights in Royal Blue.

Finally a pair of tights that fit me that I don’t have to pull up every hour. They just fit and they’re bright!

I then added my new grey and navy stripped cardi from Ezibuy, but it looked a little wrong just sitting open, so I added a belt around my waist to pull it in and tie everything together.

I am very happy with this look and I can change it up a little bit with the different colours of tights and long-sleeved t-shirts that I have. I also have several other cardis this look could work with.

I may even use it for other interviews that come up.

My fashion mind has finally kicked in. It only took 24 years.

In other fabulous fashion news, I went into City Chic today – my favourite clothing store – and put a couple of items on lay-by, because they are ridiculously expensive.

First there was this dress that I had previously seen on the website and really wanted straight away. Today I walked in to the store, saw it, they had it in my size, I tried it on, it fitted and I bought it. Done. It was like it was meant to be.

The same went for this jacket. Originally saw it online, but wanted to see if it fitted before I bought it. I did contemplate not buying it because I can’t do it up, just because of the way it sits and the small zip is on an angle. It would look awesome done up, yes, but Lisa O’Neill says with jackets that as long as it fits across your back and you can essentially pick up a toddler, the jacket is fine. And it looked fiiiine.

Yay for fashion!
