1970s Job Fair

skirt: BR (similar 1, similar 2); top: J. Crew; cardigan: Old Navy (similar); flats: Ross (similar); necklace: Francesca’s (similar)

St. Ed’s threw a job and internship fair today.  If you’ve never been to a job fair, it really is more like a Hunger Games-esque battle for the attention of prospective employers. This skirt enters stage left and I wow them all with my style, poise, and perfectly packaged résumés. Unfortunately, none of the companies in attendance wanted to pay me anything for my writing. Kind of a bust for me. However, my good friend Bailey got to live tweet the event for our Career Services. She did an awesome job and the fair had a huge turn out–definitely in part to Bailey’s mad social media skills. What a cool opportunity, right?

As I was walking through the fair, I ran into my lovely friend Nikki, who said this skirt was ’70s business chic. It wasn’t until I was editing the photos for this post that I really saw what she was talking about. If I didn’t know any better, I would have thought this skirt had a previous life as some groovy drapes in 1974.

PS. I got a new toy! It’s a Joby GorillaMobile tripod for my iPhone 4. No more are the days of leaning my phone inside a candle holder full of cotton balls! I couldn’t be more excited. Look out for photos that are taken outside of my apartment. In the sunshine. With trees. Yay!
