    Fashion Forward

    Alla Goldman, a political science and Russian major, is a style-savvy girl. Not only is Goldman a blogging fanatic, but she — and the people reading her blog — knows she is Fashion Forward.

    It is internship season and Goldman knows the right outfit to wear for an interview and what is considered “”work wear.”” She has held internship positions with the U.S. Department of State, a law firm in Scottsdale, and this summer she’ll be interning with the U.S. government. To prepare for internships, Alla shops at fashion-forward, yet affordable, places. She recommends Express, J. Crew, Banana Republic and Target.

    There are certain items no girl should be without at her interview or internship. A pencil skirt is one of the easiest and smartest ways to look like you mean business. Any store listed above will have a pencil skirt ranging from $20 to $200.  he skirt can be paired with a blouse or collared shirt — both are acceptable in the work place.

    Take notes from Alla’s outfits. They show a professional, serious woman ready for business. Don’t be caught in some bad prep school skirt. If you want to land an internship or job, start dressing like a confident businesswoman, not a slacker.

     

    Style Blogs You Should Be Reading, But Aren’t, According to Alla Goldman

    We’ve all become familiar with the super stylish photos seen on the Sartorialist and Sea of Shoes, but there’s a whole lot of style out there to pursue and to get inspired by.

    – vanessajackman.blogspot.com — A lawyer-turned-fashion photographer, she’s pretty much a female Sartorialist.

    – whatiwore.tumblr.com — A 20-something New York girl with the cutest vintage and reworked clothing. This blog is very much a snapshot in the author’s fun take on fashion.

    – www.bluecollarcatwalk.com — Outfit pictures and ideas on how to incorporate trends for various body types while staying very much under budget.

    – www.kansascouture.com — The name of the blog is self-explanatory. Thrift store finds and on-point fashion – each outfit generally costs no more than $30.

    – www.weardrobe.com — Hands down the best social networking/fashion idea-sharing site for those with big ideas but small budgets. Get an account and upload pictures of your outfits for feedback.
