sweet spot

BCBG Max Azria silk top, thrifted
trousers, Banana Republic
pendant, gift
earrings, from sis

    A few weeks ago, I went on two interviews. For the first, I wore my black and white polka dot dress and no jewelry. For the second, I wore this. Is it coincidence that I felt more comfortable and confident in this outfit than I did in the first? I'm still figuring out my interview-outfit formula, and this is the closest I've come so far. Since my jewelry tends to be inexpensive and fun, I usually hesitate to add it to an interview outfit. However, I liked the splash of yellow with the blue silk and the earrings added a little subtle interest.


  1. As someone who conducted interviews for a year, i think this is a fantastic look for an interview. Dressed up, but not over the top. Clean with a dash of color. Too many sites these days recommend not wearing colors or prints, but hell! who wants to be bland and boring. They want someone engaging to take the job. That bright blue is fantastic.

  2. I agree with Megan :) Sometimes a bit of color makes you look unique and interesting :)

  3. Thanks, Megan! It's interesting to hear your perspective from the other side of the interviewing table. For interviews, I'm always trying to find something that is appropriate (not too low cut or trendy) but interesting. Something that says a little something about who I am without being a distraction.

  4. Thanks, Kat! I always get compliments on this top - people really seem to like this shade of blue. They're always surprised when I say it came from the thrift store ...
