Big Interview coming up

I just got a call from the graduate school that I applied to for a second master's program in Educational Leadership.  I am so excited.  The interview is next Thursday and I really am hoping that I get in because this would be a great opportunity for me and open up so many doors. 

 On the financial front this interview will require me plan for transportation to the city where the interview will be held and buy a new suit and get my hair did.  I always wear black suits, but are they really appropriate for an interview.

  Do you have any suggestions for places to shop for suits, what color should I get, and where are some good places to shop for them?

until next time, think prosperous thoughts

Excellent news! I'm sure you'll get in. I think a dark suit (with a white button down and understated jewelry) is most appropriate for interviews.

Navy is a good option if you don't want to wear black, but I would stick to the dark color.

I would try stores like Daffy's (Center City Philly), Marshall's (I like the one on Haverford Ave./City Ave.) and TJ Maxx (also on Haverford Ave/City Ave.) first because they normally have a decent selection of suits if you don't mind picking through a bunch of stuff.

If that fails I always have good luck at Ann Taylor Loft, they normally have pretty good sales and coupons. Look forward to hearing how you make out.

Congratulations! I usually buy my suits at Ann Taylor,Benneton(they have talls)or Banana Republic. I also like Tahari brand I usually find them in Macy's or TJ Maxx, Filene's basement! I have to shop where I can buy seperates because my arms are long.

I tend to wear black or charcoal grey suits. Under the black suit I wear a perriwinkle blue shirt and killer stilettos(I'm a shoe girl). Grey suit I wear a pink button down with black stilettos!

Good LUCK!

Congratulations, a (male) boss once said to me (when asked if women should wear slacks or pantsuits, back in the skirts only days) what should a woman wear? he answered, that a woman should wear something so not noticeable that you don't comment about her wardrobe after the meeting or interview.

I stick with black gray or navy, all purpose suits that are tailored to fit well (I'm an odd size). Best of luck
