Style File 2/25/11

 Well! In an exciting turn of events I got a call about a job interview next tuesday! So of course now I am confronted with what to wear to it. It's an Admissions Counselor position with Regent University. I need to dress professionally, but still. I'm thinking about wearing this outfit (But I am going shopping tomorrow to see if I can find a better fitting shirt/jacket/sweater of some kind):
 I got this skirt at Salvation Army the same time I got my red boots. It's a the Limited skirt and I paid like two bucks for it. I need to take it to a dry cleaner's to be cleaned, but I like it. I can't decide if it's brown or grey, haha. It's kind of a brown-grey texture? Well it's grey enough I didn't like my opaque brown tights with it. So I think i'm going to get a more sheer brown tight, or perhaps just go with good 'ole tan panty hose for interview day. Can't go bare legged, that's for sure!
 I've had this sweater for a long time. It's Nicole Miller for JC Penney.
 Red shirt came from JC Penney a long time ago too.
 Belt: Came with some pants from H and M
You've seen my spectacular brown shoes before. :)
Pearl set from my darling husband. I love these pearls. Whenever I wear them I feel all sophisticated and stuff. :)

So what do you think? Should I try again for an different job interview outfit? I want to look professional, but not super super lawyery, haha. I do like this outfit, but I don't particularly like the fit of the shirt or sweater, I think it looks a little big on me. I'm going out with a friend tomorrow, so I think I might look for a better button down shirt. I'm thinking something teal or green. We'll see what I can find!

Other than that, no exciting news here! Just looking for a job and scrapbooking. I've been reading a collection of Leo Tolstoy's short stories and I've really been enjoying them. I just love Tolstoy. I'm not even sure why, I just do! Have you read anything good lately?

Such a cute outfit! I love the red on you, such a powerful color and it looks great w/ your coloring. I'd suggest a more structured/form fitting cardigan/jacket, but I think you're interview ready.

I'd hire you!
