So my interview for...

...is on Friday. On the US website 'casual business' is listed under office attire. But I'm going for an HR managerial position (not a sales position in a shop, pleeeaaaaassse!) in Italy. So I'm thinking of going Diva Casual. I just made that up, so I'm not sure what it means. Not a suit, but not jeans either.

Something like this?

All Black with a big bag that pops?...

...Or simple with a jacket that stands out?

...Or the classic Black and White?

...Or what about bold and carefree like this?

And whats the rule on wearing the label to the interview? Should I absolutely avoid wearing anything LV? I mean, if someone came to my office wearing anything with my company's name on it, I would write them off as a completely challenged.

Input please!!!

Taking into account LV it's a pretty conservative brand (despite Marc Jacobs) I'd go for something kind-of-white-shirt-and black, not only that, maybe a colour coat, but pretty classic. And of course, good luck;)!

Dont wear LV. Wear one piece that is second hand, or at least not a label. Something to show that you really get it. Otherwise, they are interviewing you, so dont let this be about the clothes. Simple lines, classic, with one accent piece. I am really proud of you.

By the way, I added a link to your blog on my costa site. I love checking in with you here. You are my favorite designer, and I have been watching your style develope for, what, 15 years now?
