Think color — that's the fashion mantra of recent University of Houston MBA grad Rachel Walton. When she dressed for a job interview with a law firm last week, she went for a bold look that expressed her self-confidence, her sophistication and a creative sense of style. It conveniently worked out that her jacket from J. Crew and playful red skirt from H&M transitioned nicely for the SEARCH fundraiser at The Tasting Room.
No worries about her wardrobe choice for the interview, she wasn't applying for a buttoned-down lawyer's job. Rachel is job prospecting for something in sales/business development, an area which enjoys a bit more fashion flexibility than the courtroom. "I LOVE color," she e-mailed, "and don't shy away from it."
Rachel says that her sense of style is very personalized. She shops for what looks good on her figure, gravitating toward dresses and skirts paired with a jacket and accented with a 'bold necklace."
"I like timeless pieces to anchor an outfit like my jacket, which I've had for about 10 years . . . My real love is shoes and I acquired this pair last year and just adore them!"
