As per this thread here: https://www.pricescope.com/community/threads/can-i-get-some-job-dust-please.107044/ Thank you for all the dust :*


I thought I might have blown it but the interviewer made a positive comment at the end that made me think I had a good chance but either way I have made it to the next stage :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D.

I now have to book a an appointment for my assessment and I don''t know which date to book the earliest is Tuesday - day after my birthday but it doesn''t give me the greatest amount of time to find a killer interview outfit.

I was thinking of booking early March which is the day after I get my o-rings changed on my braces - they tend to yellow as I wear them so they will be fresh and not make me look like I have yucky yellow teeth which would be good I think personally. Also it is near the end so it keeps me fresh in thier minds me thinks but if I go earlier I look keener - Confused.


Sooner or later which would you book?

I am a little excited if you can''t tell WOOO HOOO

I ended up booking the later, I couldn't wait any longer and I figured this gives me more time to organise :).

Any more continued dust will be more then appreciated :), PS dust rocks :D

Congrats and good luck!


I was going to say later anyway
Much better to be one of the last ones so they remember you!

What are you wearing? A suit? Or something more casual?

Thanks BEG, definitly a suit which with my height and curvy frame can be a real bugger to find in Australia they don''t believe in taller length clothes - sigh shame I can''t jet off to NY for a quick shopping trip

Aw oh no! I hate shopping for suits - it''s such a pain. The only time I''ve enjoyed it was in Tokyo because everyone had the same build as me (very short!). No need for alterations there
I hope you find something though! Pant suit or skirt suit?

Thanks Freke, me too *fingers crossed* :).

BEG, I would say a skirt, suit pants are just nightmare finding something with the right length is just blah. Dress shopping also sucks I love cute dresses but most of the time they end up looking like tops on me. I think I will cry when my old navy pants that I got in NY die why I didn''t think of buying more is beyond me (they were also on sale).

I''ve become a big fan of skirt suits lately! Although prob not now here in Chicago, in winter
I think I have the total opposite problem as you - a knee-length dress or skirt ends up being mid-calf for me, so it never looks right!
But seriously, I will be sending you lots of good luck dust - I went through a round of interviews in the fall and it gets so tiring! I''m sure you''ll do great so keep us updated!

YAY!!
Good for you Dee!

For the suit - go to Country Road !! I love their clothes, both formal and casual. I have a couple of beautiful suit jackets from them.
Plus they're not insanely expensive. Plus they can be mixed and matched and dressed down to wear later..
Fi has an incredible suit that he has from there that he pulls out for weddings etc..man that suit looks hot!
Can you tell I like CR?, lol
I'm average-sih height and usually have to have their pants taken up, so hopefully they will work as is for you..?

again, WHeeee for you!

Are you Serious?! Get thee to a boutique Now woman! They are stylish well made clothes, at an affordable price point.
its pretty much all I wear, and same with FMIL - we always show up wearing the same things, lol..

Think how well you would nail the interview in this: http://www.countryroad.com.au/#/womenswear/urban_career/9
or this http://www.countryroad.com.au/#/womenswear/urban_career/19
did you say skirt suit.. http://www.countryroad.com.au/#/womenswear/urban_career/21

ha ha, I''ll stop now.
Enjoy shopping for your outfit, and again good for you and good luck

Oh really? How funny, my closest friend just moved to Melbs recently too! Maybe we can trade shopping buddies, lol..!

I''m glad you liked the pieces - one of those suits with a red blouse would look killer - I wish I could see you in your interview outfit

Congratulations on making it to the 2nd round Deelight


I don''t know if you can get them there, but I''ve found that J Crew suits fit really well off the rack for my very curvy figure - I like the stretch wool ones.

Yay - Congrats, Dee! Cheers to the next round!


What a great reason to have to go shopping! I hope you find something that makes you feel amazing ... there will be no stopping you then, right?!!
When you do find your outfit, you know you will have to share, right?

Thanks you Maise, mscushion, anchor, AdiS, Porridge, Burk, Coati and Skippy :).

AJ I wish I was in Melb, the shopping is much better there then here (QLD)
, when I find one I will post pics at the momment though I am currently rocking some deep blood red nailpolish I think it looks awesome :).

tlh Thanks for the link, I will try and find something local first because of time constraints but what you posted would definitly work :), I am about 5''10 and have a typical European body - what I wouldn''t give for a boyish figure *sigh*.

AmberGretchen Sadly no
, I did try on some their stuff when I went to NY they do have lovely pieces.

Spark I can''t think of a better reason, and then of course I need a grown up work wardrobe as well
, I already have spied some really cute office dresses that I plan on trying later this evening.


FI has pretty well decided that I have the job I told him what the next stage entailed and he was like yeah you will have no problems with that stuff so here is hoping he is right and by then end of next month I will be employed again YAY :).

Ack! I''m sorry sweety, for some reason I had you pegged as Melbs..

ya, some of my family live in QLD and I know its not really the shopping capital here..sigh..I have to admit Perth has improved in leaps and bounds in recent years, but likely still not a touch on Melbs..
Anyways, I''m sure your red polish looks killer, and I can sympathise about the european shape thing - at least we get olive skin, right?


I bet your Fi is right and you rock it


more dust just for the heck of it *************

Aww sweety I'm sure you look gorgeous - and I bet lots of girls with boyish figures say they wish they had hips/curves - its always the way.
What nationality are you?

Not to beat a dead horse, but with CR their sizing is really decent too - most ppl find they go down a size - may not be real, but still makes you feel good, lol!

Thanks hun :), I will definitly get out to CR sometime soon I just went down the road tonight it was raining and I couldn''t be stoofed driving LOL. The sizing in shops is crazy I can literally vary 2-3 sizes depending on what store I visit - INSANE.

AS for the nationality I am Serbian but I don''t think I look typically Serb/Eastern European however when I went back there, there were a heck of a lot of people who looked kinda like me LOL.
