Early in my career, a women came in for an interview wearing a black leather mini skirt with a black leather tube top and matching jacket. No flip flops but she had on 4 inch black pumps. In her mind this was a business suit and was appropriate. I conducted the entire interview as I would for anyone else. When I called to let her know I has selected another candidate I explained the person I selected was better educated, had more experience and has a stronger professional presence. She asked what that meant so I was honest and suggested she review her business attire.
