    I have an interview at Mint Velvet on Saturday a new store opening in House of Fraser so a concession really. I have never worked with fashion before and therefore dont really know much about the job so I want everything to be perfect. On there webite it says sophisticated but wearable fashion.

    I had a phone interview which I passed and she asked me what I knew about fashion and what trends I thought were in the season.

    I dont know if I should wear a suit with high heels or a dress with tights and heels.


    This is the dress i'm thinking of wearing


    With a pair of high heels.

    Plus does anybody know what kind of questions they may ask as I have no experience in this field.

    Yes I agree. I think you should wear something classy but casual over-all. Not yet sure though.

    Well its not actually those boots I couldnt find any that looked a like I just wanted to show where they went on the leg. The boots do actually go when I wear the dress.

    I have decided on high heels now if I wear the dress or trousers with a t-shirt only thing is that she asked about fashion on the phone so I think smart would not show my fashion sense.

    When I went for my interview to be a concession manager in Topshop, my friend gave me a good piece of advice which was to go dressed as you would if you were going for a fairly posh lunch with friends.

    I would say wear something that shows your style, but I wouldn't go for denim or anything too casual.

    Thats what I thought which is why I thought the dress because not only is it smart casual but on the site they also have the similar sleeves which are the puffy shoulders so but also there is brown trousers with a wite top sleeveless cardigan and scarf I have cut it down to the 2 both with high heels its hard I would wear both to a poshish meal and but I dont want to pick the wrong one

    I would go with the dress but then I personally prefer dresses to trousers.

    Yeah I used to do 16 when I worked as a concession in Topshop.
    That was ideal for me as it was enough money but I think I would have got sick of the place if I'd be there for longer!
