These shoes were made for buying, so that's just what I'll do

Cletus: "Hey Brandine, you might could wear these to your job interview."
Brandine: "And scuff up the topless dancin' runway? Naw, you best bring em back where from ya got 'em."
Cletus: (tosses the boots back on the telephone line) "Back you go, to wait for a woman of less discriminatin' taste."

I bought a new (navy blue, which my mom says is best for looking professional) suit for my job interviews. Alas, I have no shoes to match, so it looks like I'll have to buy another pair. Sigh. Life is so difficult, having to get shoes all the time and nonesuch.

I tried on some cute shoes yesterday but they pinched on the top, so I didn't buy them. But I did get brown leather sandals with a heel for $12! Never mind that it wasn't the point of the mission! They were $12! I couldn't pass them up!

And so... the search continues.

hehe that's a very good reason to buy shoes. Uhh, have you been to the Arborland DSW yet? I kinda wanna go. Can we get a shoe shopping group together?

Good luck finding the right shoes that feel as good as they look. I hope you are looking for a plain blue pump with closed heel and toe and NO flip flops.

Your mom must have read The Woman's Dress for Success Book by John T. Molloy. Lots of good advice in there. :-)

Hmm a woman's dress for success guide written by a man. does it include push up bras, inpossibly high pencil heels, short skirts and see through shirts?

Definitely closed toes, but I might allow myself a slingback if it looks/feels good. Problem is, they don't seem to.

No, the guide talks about power suits and scarves and dressing for the job you want and not the one you are applying for.

Sling backs are a NO NO for job interviews. Stick with a pump. Try some of the comfort pumps they carry at Sears... I can't remember the name of them now.

I wore calf-high designer boots to the interview for my job at UVM.

Slingbacks are fine. I wear them with pant suits that hide the slingback if the interviwing co. is conservative, and even with skirt suits. No pencil heels or leopard print :)

I love how that works out. Shopping for something very specific and then finding lots of other cute stuff and good deals on stuff that you really don't need, but really want!

All I'm saying is that if the interviewer has to hire from 3 equally qualified women he/she will go for the properly dressed professional rather than the fashion diva or the slob.

*chants* Diva! Diva! Diva!

The next time an interviewer lifts my pant legs to see if I am wearing slingbacks, I am suing them!

gravatar katie - July 29, 2005 - 10:34 AM -

You mean it's happened before?

gravatar Sylvie - July 29, 2005 - 11:20 AM -

oh sure, you mean you've never had that happen? ;-)

gravatar katie - July 29, 2005 - 11:37 AM -

Nah, I was the one doing the lifting.

gravatar Sylvie - July 29, 2005 - 1:31 PM -

I hope ya at least got the job!

gravatar katie - July 29, 2005 - 2:17 PM -
