Interview Attire

Today I had a big interview for an accounting position and I wanted to share what I wore and what I think are appropriate for an interview. As you guys know I just graduated college with a bachelors in Accounting and am on the hunt for "thee job". I've been applying whenever there is an opening but hardly got any call backs. This is only my second interview since I graduated in December. Two months looking for a job and only two interviews. Everyone wants experience and the only experience I have is an internship, which is more then most college graduates can say. So besides not having experience you want to have a good attitude and be confident. Be confident. Plus look professional. Very professional. Black is key in these situations. Blazers, trousers, dress pants, button up, skirt. Look your best.
Yesterday the fiance and I went shopping for an interview outfit. When I use to work in retail I would see people buy just an "interview outfit". You spend a lot, but honestly, I feel it's an investment. If that tailors suit or skirt outfit makes you feel good, do it. If it makes you feel more confident it's definitely worth it.
So I went to Kohl's and found a cute outfit and had coupons. I love this outfit not only because it's very professional but I could break up the pieces and turn them into other more casual outfits.

The tank and blazer are by Apt 9 and the skirt is a Daisy Fuentes. I absolutely love the skirt because it's a slimming pencil skirt. I know a lot of that material that's in these slimming skirts are uncomfortable but I must say it's very comfortable! I felt good in it! And that's what matters.
