What I Wore: Job Fair

By Blonde Bowhemian - October 03, 2016

You know when you see something and you just have to have it but also have no occasion to wear it? That was me with this dress when I saw it on Anthropologie's website for an additional 40% off the already reduced price. I began making up reasons in my head for why I needed it: as a work wardrobe addition (I'm a student), for dinner parties (I don't get invited to those), or maybe for some Carrie Bradshaw-esque cosmopolitan event (I go to school in the middle of rural PA). Whatever, I had to have it, so the order was placed and soon enough it was hanging gracefully in my closet, with no future in sight besides me pulling it out every once in a while to stare longingly at it (I'm kidding, kind of).

Our campus job fair, however, came around and I jumped at the chance to wear it. With its collar and button-down front, I thought it was perfect for this event, while the unusual print and flowy shape made it unique and memorable. A recruiter I met at the fair still remembered me a few weeks later when I met him again, so I'm going to chalk it up to this dress!

My friend, Emma, was kind enough to offer to shoot me in this outfit (I changed up the shoes from nude chunky heels to flatforms to make it a little more casual) and I took her up immediately! I'm definitely no model, but I love how the shots came out, especially the detail ones. Thanks a bunch to Emma! Check out some of our favorites below:
