OOTD : A Fashion Job Interview.

Thursday, 13 March 2014
I had a job interview. In central London. In fashion. Hold me back while I faint from disbelief. Fingers crossed for me! Whilst I was there I met up with Lexxi from my previous internship at a magazine and she kindly took some OOTD shots for me as I hadn't had time to in the morning.
Because my interview involved a presentation I wanted to go quite formal, so I took a suitable office outfit and fashion upgraded it by adding pops of bright colour and patterns. On my way to the interview I actually got stopped and snapped for a guy from Thousand Yard Style so that was a nice confidence boost before going in!


My blazer is current and from New Look. (I actually got stopped and complimented twice during the day on my blazer, both times by men!) The shirt was a simple and cheap H&M number. My belt was Primarni, and my trousers are from Mango. (The editor of Company Mag once complimented me on these trousers, so they are my go-to for fashion formal events now!) My sling back shoes were a fantastic £10 from Primarni, and they were comfortable enough to wear for 8 hours before deciding to switch to flat shoes.


My sunglasses were a gift from my bessie Daisy. She calls them the 'perfect winter glasses.' Lucky for me the sun was out to play in London so they were a huge help - but I put them in my bag for the actual interview. My bag was borrowed from my mum. I was going to take my Zara City Bag but it was too big to fit in my hand luggage so I borrowed this one which is by Vera Pelle. (Always nice to walk into an interview with Italian leather on your arm!)


I was originally going to wear my hair up in a bun but it looked stupid and I didn't have enough time to fix it in the morning so I opted for half up and half down. After lunch with Lexxi and the interview I met my London lasses for some shopping and dinner so it was a really great day. (By this point in the evening I was looking very bedraggled, so excuse the following photographs!)
