So yesterday I had an interview at Lane Bryant and I am REALLY hoping I get the job. I won't say any more here because I'm trying not to count my eggs before they hatch. I'll know by next week.

This outfit came pretty easily to me. I like to wear black to an interview, but I don't have a formal suit (and it was pretty warm that day). So a dress was perfect and I thew on the bright F21+ blazer to just make things a little more professional looking. I love this jacket! It has (small!) shoulder pads which actually help me out because I have narrow, sloping shoulders. Right before I went into the back to talk to the assistant manager, the single button popped off! It didn't affect anything in the end, though. The bright florals might be too much for a business office, but since I was interviewing at a plus-size fashion retailer, something a little fashion forward is always appreciated (I think anyway). Because the blazer is so busy, I toned down the accessories. I want the interviewer to focus on what I'm saying, not the jangling of huge earrings or bracelets.

My Dad took this picture, so it's a little blurry (God bless 'em). Also, my curvilicious cat, Arwen (yes, she is named after a certain Elvish princess), decided SHE had to make a cameo on the blog. So I guess that's all for now folks. Tune back later for more!
