Everyday Bombshell- Interview Attire

I went on a job interview today - or what I like to call a "professional blind date."  Doesn't interviewing always feel that way?  You're trying to get to know the company, they're trying to get to know you - you're both trying to get a feel for whether or not you'd be compatible.  I think interviewing is fun because it's always interesting to meet new people.

Equally fun - figuring out what to wear on that interview.  I was meeting with a company whose culture is pretty laid back and casual, so I  knew this outfit would be a little dressier than what everyone else was wearing.  I wanted to convey respect for the company and the fact that they were meeting with me, plus show my personality.  Here's how I did it:



I picked up this Rafaella Woman sheath dress at Macy's a few weeks ago.  It was buried in the clearance section, and at the extremely reduced price of $19.99 I knew it would be a terrific addition to my work wardrobe. I love the classic fit and style, amped up with a panel of red material down the back.   It fits a little loosely in the middle, so I cinched my waist with a corset belt from Torrid.  Gunmetal accessories from Lia Sophia were the perfect finishing touches.  The shoes are from Jessica London.
