Dress to impress...... I am so screwed

So I finally got a job interview and I was excited. I got a email that said where, when and what I need. Along the bottom added dress to impress. Which usually means a suit!!!! I am screwed!! I don't have a suit or a nice jacket. Most of my clothes are old. I have a few still nice things. But in an effort to save money I haven't bought new clothes in a while. And while I was expecting to look nice. This freaks me out. What if I DON't impress. We need this job desperately. The last interview I was had had 200 applicants. And competition for jobs in this college town can be fierce.
It's just a hotel clerk job.
Would nice slacks a really nice conservative shirt and simple pumps do the job? Help guys.

It's one day right? Round up all the loose change or extras you have, get a nice suit and then tuck the tags or remove the tags, keep the receipt...return the suit after the interview.

Can you pop into the thrift store in the morning and get something nice?

The business casual outfit you drescribed will probably work, but a nice suit coat wouldn't hurt.

Goodwill and salvation army can get good interview worthy clothes in if you look.   Usually, you can get nice tops for $3-5 each in my area.    A suit outfit?  Never looked actually, but I know that my daughter bought prom-dress quality fancy dresses for between $10 and $20.

You really need a suit for an interview like that, and a nice one.

Thanks for the idea

We do have a goodwill here and they recently built a really big nice one.

 I agree with Liastele and Krissy. Try the thrift shops and see what you can find...also ask around if time as I know there are organizations which help outfit women who are interviewing  and starting new jobs. Congratulations...may you soon be a working girl!

Dress how you would on a daily basis at work. If that means suit you might have to go get one or borrow one. Check out good will and thrift should. My mom found me a brand new still had the tags suit for 3 bucks.
