pants, Banana Republic Factory Store
Nothing like having to get dressed for an interview to make you realize that you own exactly one pair of interview-appropriate pants. And let's not even talk about my lack of appropriate footwear ... luckily, I live in a casual place where dress shoes are not a requirement, but I think a decent heel would be nice to have for unavoidable formal occasions.
I tried on the shoes pictured below (in black) at the Clarks Outlet a few months ago, but didn't get them. I wasn't sure whether they'd be all-day comfortable, so I only bought a pair of sandals that I knew I could wear to work. Now I realize that they would have been a good option for dressier occasions.
