Ummm, so... I’m having a bit of wardrobe crisis.
In ten days time I have the most important exam of my life so far. Obviously, as opposed to working, I’m busy stressing about clothes.
I am about to take the transfer (upgrade) exam from MPhil to PhD. The exam is a viva voce, although not as long or scary, as the one at the end of PhD. It's an hour and a half long in front of a panel of 5 academics.
I don't know what to wear and I know it shouldn't matter but it really, really does. The problem is I'm studying at art college (this one), in the fashion department. My tutors wear Comme des Garçons and Margiela, my co-students wear their own creations and I have been writing in my pajamas for the last three weeks
My style up until recently was sort of tangled vintage. The thing is I'm 32, I want to be taken seriously and I'm not sure 30s tea dresses and laddered tights cut it anymore? I don’t want to look like a manic pixie dream girl; I want to look competent and strong. I'm just not quite sure how to do it.
So could someone find me the perfect PhD exam outfit? Dress or skirt and top with awesome shoes would be wonderful. I'm a UK 10, blonde, pale and extremely curvy (big ass and big tits). I need to be able to purchase online (and preferably in the UK).
Demanding, I know….
Bit in love with these shoes, btw……
Budget: About £300? I am profligate as well as unproductive
a black dress (zara again)
and killer shoes, obvs
if you want snakeskin
i vastly prefer this pair
note: get your hair cut!
