Arrgh, what do you were when you are interviewing someone but can’t be bothered to wear a suit as it’s only an internal interview? Why a red dress of course! I think a red dress is a bit of a staple, like the old LBD (which is still also an essential), but a red dress I think can be elegant, sophisticated, and apparently makes me look ‘grown up’!
This dress is an ebay find – it’s an Oasis dress and I think I paid something ridiculous like £1.99 plus postage from Ebay. The great thing about Oasis clothes is I can buy them from Ebay because I know a size 8 fits me perfectly!
The last time I wore this, I wore it with ‘sensible’ shoes, and I got told I looked ‘grown up’, which let’s face it, is just a polite way of saying frumpy. I’d not worn it since then, but decided to give it a go again, only this time putting some mega heels with it to give it a bit of an edge and putting on some statement jewellery, rather than the simple necklace form last time.
I also did my hair in a sort of random half bun/twist thing that I made up to avoid any ‘mum hair’ adding to the frump!.
I thought it worked well with the necklace and shoes, but see what you think for yourself, as the red dress could go either way for me….wear often, or never make it out of the wardrobe again!
