    Soooo....

    I have this second meeting/interview/who knows what tomorrow with my dream school. When I went in for my formal interview, I wore my navy pants suit. Should I wear the same thing? It's the only suit that fits me right now... :eek:
    I have many pant/shirt combos too. Like...my black pinstripe pants and white button up shirt...things like that.
    I just want to make the best impression, and try to get that offer!
    What do y'all think?

    I think you still need to wear a suit. So, maybe you could pair it with a different dress shirt and jewelery to make it look different.

    I agree. The suit would be best. If you can't find another suit between tonight and tomorrow wear a different shirt, wear your hair different and like jw said, wear different jewelry.

    Maybe you could break up the suit and wear the jacket with a different bottom. I have a very good memeory when it comes to clothes.

    Thanks for all the input. I am going to try and pick something out tonight. If not...I have until 10:30 am tomorrow to do some last minute shopping. At my second job right now...ugh.
    The principal called me and asked if we could move the meeting from 10 to 10:30 cause he had a parent coming in. I said sure! lol
    Getting nervous...blah

    Good luck with you interview! If you can't find another suit, I don't think that it would be bad to wear the suit you have already worn , but with a very different shirt.

    I think the suit is the way to go! As long as you wear a different shirt, different jewelry, and maybe your hair a different way, they probably won't even notice! And you'll probably be sitting down so most of the things you changed will be the things they will be looking at. :)

    Good luck with the interview!

    I got it!!!!! :) :) :) :)
    It wasn't the same position. The department head I interviewed with is leaving, so that opened up some of her classes. They considered me first! The principal told me that they had a tough time NOT hiring me the for the first position b/c they all liked me so much, and he was sad to lose his department head...but thrilled that he could offer me something. lol!
    They gave me my official offer letter, and said it was as binding as a contract. Official contracts come out in May.
    It's such a relief!
    Thanks to everyone for their support and great advice! :) :) :)

    -hugs-

    You could also try a small scarf under the label that coordiantes with the suit and blouse colors. I did this with a navy suit and it helped to make it look like another outfit. Plus, its not as expensive as buying an enitre new outfit. It also makes you look very pulled together. I also agree that you should do your hair differently and use different jewelry.
