What I Wore 28.11.08

Today I had a job interview, it was for an accounts assistant but, since it was a recruitment agency, there's a chance I could end up in a totally different position. Anyway, the interview went really well except when I got out my second button had popped! D: I don't know at what point it decided to pop open, woops! When I texted (a rather unsympathetic) Boy to tell him he said "Whatever it takes to get the job ;) :)". Boys are so helpful.

Other than that it went really well, the woman interviewing me was very cool! We talked about shopping and Southbound! And she said she liked my shoes :)
(Evil button popping) Top: Ben Sherman//Skirt: Basque//Tights: Razzamatazz (doesn't saying it just make you want to do jazz hands? I know I do. RAZZAMATAZZ)//Shoes: Zoom//Necklace: Family heirloom//Earrings: Diva
Let me tell you, it was incredibly hard to find a skirt! All the high-waisted pencil ones I tried on were way too big in the waist, but made my thighs look like mating sea-lions. The only one that fit (apart from the Basque one, which was on sale) was a Country Road one which was $189. Skirt-makers, get on it!
Luckily, I felt a lot more comfortable in this outfit than I did last time I interviewed at a corporate place, where I wore a suit jacket & skirt. In that outfit I kind of felt like a kid playing dress-ups, not very "me" at all! Needless to say I did not get that job, maybe because the interview was pretty horrendous!
Then I went shopping and bought this Little Lady From top, which was made even better by the fact Myer were having a 25% of "youth clothing" day.
Last night Boy & I watched My Neighbour Totoro (or Tonari no Totoro), by the brilliant Hayao Miyazaki, and it was fantastic & adorable & whimsical & gleeful!
Is it too late to wish a happy Thanksgiving? Well, happy Thanksgiving anyway!
p.s I accidentally deleted my post from yesterday, sorry!


  1. Oh my goodness! Totoro is probably one of the best films ever made. It is so wonderful...

    Em - I think that watching anime inspired me to buy a Tokyo-inspired top!
    Annie - Even MY OWN MOTHER said "Ah well, a bit of a nip slip can't hurt". Hopefully I impressed them with my... wit?
