An Eyelet Dress and an Interview


Yesterday I had the perfect excuse to dress up a bit more than my normal "housedresses." I had an interview for a graduate assistant position and needed to wear something slightly more fancy than my everyday Swirls and 40s day dresses. If you are not familiar with university life, most professors dress in a slightly less than dressy business causal. This meeting called for a dressy business causal.

I love this dress I wore. I have only worn it once before yesterday, because it got lost admits my other dresses in my closet. It's a lightweight cotton with brown stitching around the eyelets, which are actually larger holes than the normal eyelet size. This makes a slip a requirement. I also love that the top of the dress has brass bead-like embellishments around the whole neckline area. Since the dress was sleeveless, I opted to wear a little sweater. I also got a chance to wear one of my favorite pairs of vintage wedges; they're bronze!!!

Overall, the interview went well. Wish me luck!! :)

good luck! Gorgeous outfit. As a former academic type (and English grad research assistant) I can predict you will be the best dressed of them all!!! HEHE, in my former department, it would have been a compliment to refer to my colleagues' dress as "business casual." As the Chair of my Dept. once put it, "it seems our colleagues are ascribing to the Sharon, Lois, and Bram school of costume...baggy shapeless sweaters, etc."
