Now I'm having second thoughts because of the ruffles on the sides. Appropriate for business casual? What about OCI? If not, can I take it to a tailor and get the ruffles removed? It fits me really well and I have a hard-to-fit body, but I can return it if it looks too weird.
I think it's adorable, but I say no to OCI. Seems too fashionable for OCI.
Thanks, I kind of agree. You think it would be ok in a business casual firm (after I *cross fingers, knock on wood*) am hired?

I can actually confirm that some people think it is more casual looking--I wore my hair in its naturally curly state in a mock interview and was told that I should straighten it or wear it up. Sucks, but there you go.
