For Sale

It's months since I recieved my redundancy notes, but I haven't really started job hunting till after the new year. The problem with jobhunting is that you have to go to interviews, not that I have a problem with interviews as such, actually there is just one little details that is a problem...

What to wear!?

Ok, I know what to wear. Only my most recent jobs I didn't really take that serious when i went for the interviews so dresscode was more smart casual than business smart. However, a new year resolution, though in good new year resolution style I probably wont keep to it, I am planning to get a real job this time, and this is where the problem comes in...

What to wear!?

I went to the shops yesterday to find myself a new suit. Luckily the mad sale rush is starting to slow down, but come lunchtime I still hadn't found anything I liked which came in my size. Why is the only clothes available in January sales items? Why can't I get a full price suit till the sale is finished? I went to 7 different shops (incl.department stores) and actually found 3 different suites I liked. The first one the skirt fit but the only jacket available was two numbers too big. The next one the skirt was only available in a size 8 (= small. Enough said!) and the third one was £299 for the jacket alone and though it was ok, it was not Wow! I expect Wow! for £299 + £189 for a suit.

Maybe I should slow down my job hunting till I have found something to wear.

I think you can't wait until you have the proper clothing because you could use that excuse for too long. It really depends on your situation.

I tend to jump first and plan later. I hope that you're able to find something you need either way.

Isn't "What to wear?" the MOST important issue for any occassion?

Good luck on the job hunting though!

And em... I am already working on getting more traffic over there so you have a reason to be late at work... ;-)

You need a great job in order to buy the clothes you need for a great job.

It's a problem I always run into too!!
