Hey Fashionable You!

Has the economy affected your ability to shop for the hot, trendy items that the Stiletto Jungle has discovered for you? If you answered yes, then you are probably in the midst of sending out resumes and networking for a new job versus shopping the new trends.

Well, I am sure that you a new job and increased pay await you! But, remember, there is one more step before you can settle into your new gig...the JOB INTERVIEW!

I would hate for you not to get the job because your attire screamed that you were "more concerned with fashion than the job." You know...strutting into the interview wearing six inch clogs, banded mini skirt and door knocker earrings. Just one of any combination of the items could be a deal breaker.

And on the other extreme, I would hate for your interviewer to think you are not current; thus, unable to relate to the changing business environment because you still have that hairstyle from the '80s.

So watch the latest video now. I give you three tips to help you smartly prepare your wardrobe for your job interview. Make sense?
