Hi all, I have an interview on the 29th. I haven't had one for 8 years. To be honest I have no idea how I will get there and do it as I get really anxious and it includes a 10 min presentation as well as interview. It's 18k a year more than I'm on, working from home. You get the picture!
Anyway, what do I wear??!!! Those of you who don't know me. I'm a size 18, 5,4. I don't want to wear a suit, I like dresses. Want something a bit quirky but obviously professional. Any ideas?

What's the job for? Can you go for something formal but with a bit of colour? Like a suit style but a bright blazer or top?

Its a compliance officer for the care quality commission
oooooh fab Jenny!
Right, what are your clothes choices? Have you narrowed it down to a few things you already have or are you buying new?
And what's the job for so we can help dress you.

Buying new, don't want to go silly money but not cheap either.

Thanks Pip, didn't think blazer, may be an option although I'll be wearing a coat as well so may be a bit bulky
Right, Public sector is more relaxed than Private so we definitely don't want to go along the suit route. How about a wrap dress, or cigarette pants (I'm sure I've seen you in these before) & blazer? Where do you normally shop?

Next, m and s, sometimes boden if feeling flush, dorothy p, wallis. I did think wrap dress. There is a nice reddy patterned one on next and thought i could wear my black patent brogues and have a nice manicure, hopefully make me feel a bit more confident!

Show us the dress, sounds perfect.
Do you take anything for your anxiety? You know I've only met you a few times but I've never got the impression you were nervous or anything. Your fab!

I have just started taking something, it's helping a bit but standing up and speaking for 10 mins is terrifying. I'm good at hiding it Belle!
I'm not sure how to do a link but will have a go

You think it's smart enough?

If say the dress is plenty smart enough, sounds like a nice outfit you've put together. Good luck!:)
