I Got The Job!

by Jessica Sturdy on July 30, 2012

Happy Monday, Friends! Remember how I was interviewing last Wednesday? Well, I got the job! I will be doing social media for a variety of beauty/fragrance brands. I could not be more excited! And I start today! Wish me luck. :)

When interviewing, I like to keep it simple — notice my lack of jewelry and cream/black color palette. But I think it’s important to show some personality — bow belt, leopard bangle, two bangles! For me, heels are a must. You need to be wearing something that a) you are comfortable in, and b) makes you feel confident!

Forever 21 Dress (similar here, here, and here) / Milly Satin Bow Belt (similar) / Zara Heels (similar) / Sam Edelman Flats / Marc By Marc Jacobs Tote (crushing on the cream color!) / Prada Sunglasses / Sequin Bangles one & two (The leopard bangle also comes in skinny and medium sizes!)

You can find similar dress/belt combinations here for $39 and here for $200.

There were a lot of comments on Instagram about my belt. Since the only satin bow belt I could find was $500, I’ve rounded up some other black bow belts for you!

Congratulations on the new job!!! It’s always a frustrating process, finding a new one! Love your outfit! So simple and classy, yet lots of personality with the heels, bracelets, and bow belt! The cream color would transition great into fall too with black tights! I am so ready for fall! These 100+ degree temps all month are torture :)
