I had a very frustrating dream last night where I was shopping for a shell to wear under my suits for my job interviews. I was at Briarwood and would go from store to store, failing and getting more frustrated. At Ann Taylor (which was strangely coed), the smallest size they had was 5 and the salesperson made me try it on even though I knew it wouldn't fit. At Macy's (there's no Macy's at Briarwood!) they didn't have any shells, but the saleswomen were trying to convince me to get a lingerie top instead. I told them that it was for a job interview and that a lingerie top would not be appropriate. She argued that it would be appropriate to wear anything you felt comfortable in and I said that I wouldn't be comfortable wearing a lingerie top to a job interview and what did she know about professional job interviews, anyway, working at Macy's?

The most frustrating thing about this dream is that, except for the strange suddenly-appearing Macy's and suddenly-expanding Ann Taylor, this is the story of my week! I can't find a shell to save my life. It's all lingerie tops and things that don't fit and millions of salespeople who think that a lingerie top is appropriate for a job interview!

First thought that comes to my mind is Jones of NY . . . they carry a lot of petite sized clothes, but the only one I know of is in Birch Run . . . Have you been to Somerset? I often resort to a schlep there when I am unable to find a particular item for a particular event.

Have you been to a real-life Ann Taylor? They're usually pretty good, and I bought my only-ever size 4 item there.

Or you could try Walmart... ;)

You do remember that dream I had that I told you about, right?

Yeah... our Ann Taylor was surprisingly disappointing. :(
