Is the headscarf interview appropriate?
I'd like to thank this outfit for getting me the job at j.crew. It surely must have been the outfit, because I was awkward in the interview.
I've always been a confident girl, but for some reason "selling myself" (no not red-light district style) has always made me feel really, really uncomfortable...but I guess I did an okay job, because yesterday the call came, and I was offered the job! Woohoo! 
Now, if I can actually get my paycheck home and not directly back into the j.crew cash register, that would be the trick...
Thanks for everyone's sweet words of encouragement and advice! You guys are too great, I really am so grateful for you all.

Congrats! Sometimes I am super awkward in interviews too haha! I was super awkward at Nordstrom with the HR Manager and then with the managers over departments I was SO comfortable and normal! Good luck not spending your paycheck! You may lose money working there, which is why I've been trying to avoid working retail haha even though I want to! :)

Congrats on the new job!  I always find that to be the challenge when working in retail, to not spend all my hard earned money at the same time.

I love JCrew... and truthfully, I get more excited when a JCrew catalog comes in the mail than I do when a paid subscription like Glamour does! I've thought of applying there just for a discount but I know that I would have no self control- they make the prettiest ballet flats ever.

Congrats on your job! Your outfit is so cute.

You could get any job with that outfit! I am the same way during interviews though--just kinda awkward. Haha.
