  • I think for retail you should be fine wearing clean jeans and a nice top. If you feel uncomfortable about how you are dressed or if she/he kind of give you looks, explain your situation to them.

  • Anything that you could squeeze into that would not look like you squeezed into. Otherwise, depending on what the job is for, you may be able to dress in the best clothes possible that you do have. If it is a female that is interviewing you, hopefully she will be understanding with your situation and understand.

  • GO buy something. Dress for the job you want, not the one you have.

  • If its a casual workplace, like grocery or restaurant, nice jeans and top would be fine. You want to dress similar to the other employees.

  • Would it be possible to stop somewhere on your way to the interview and borrow or buy a pair of shoes to wear with your black skirt?

  • i would go to goodwill and try to find something if you really have nothing, you can spend 15 dollars and get a whole outfit
