Two in One!

    Last Wednesday I got up at my normal time and thought, "I'll wear that skirt I made and feel cute all day.  And hey! cute hair!" So I got up, got dressed, headed to school and survived my Secured Transactions class.  (it was touch and go there for a while)  Then at around 11 am I got an email basically saying, "Would you mind interviewing today?  How about 4 pm?"  So I got really excited, flustered and nervous in the span of 15 seconds.  Then I ran home to steam my suit, steam my blouse, do my hair and makeup, eat, and run back to school for another 2 classes before my interview.  (Mind you, I was half-freaking out the entire time).  
See? Happy girl blind to craziness of the day
    My interview turned out really really well.  Still no word yet, but I've got my fingers crossed.  I think my mom, grandmother and aunt all have candles lit too.  So, send good vibes, k?  Anyway, I'm going to take advantage of the fact that I had no choice but to suit up and change outfits to show you all my interview suit.  I got this suit the Christmas break of my first year of law school, so December 2007.  My parents made it part of my Christmas gift since Spring of your first year is the first time you can interview with possible future employers.  
    At the time we were in Puerto Rico so we headed down to Macy's in San Juan where there were TONS of suits on sale.  I think I tried on 30 different suits.  I was looking for a dark colored skirt suit on the belief that in order to interview for law jobs you have to wear a skirt suit.  I got lucky and found this beautiful navy blue pinstripe suit by Nine West.  I was initially concerned that the jacket would be too tight, but despite my boobs having grown since then, the jacket still fits.  It was on sale and originally included a tank top-like blouse.  I have since given that top away because even when I bought it, the girls just didn't want to be trapped in it.  It was pretty sad since it was a dark blue with light pink polka dots.  
I have since gone with this more classic and covered up white button down with very thin black pinstripes.  It has a more put together and professional feel.  Which is probably why anytime I put this suit on I feel confident.  I am suddenly "on," which by the way reminds me a lot of how Batman is just Bruce Wayne until he puts on the batsuit.   Add my pearls, hose and heels and I'm super-attorney-wannabe. New super hero?  I think so!

oh, i lov your "power suit" i love subtle pinstripes --for men AND women. I work with college students getting them prepped for internships and career jobs so this would be a signature outfit for them to wear to interviews, and one I would lov to own myself. :)) great find in PR!
