Silks and Satins and Linen, OH MY!

I bought this dress at a vintage shop on Wednesday. I wore it Thursday. I took 928 pictures of it. Can you tell I love love it?

07-27 interview
I had a job interview in Columbus on Monday. This is my go-to grown-up look. Both the receptionist and interviewer liked my shoes and I feel that that had an impact on their decision to call me today and request a second interview. Yay!

"satin" dress - The Gap Outlet. I paid something like $15 for this baby and nothing makes me feel more worthy of a high-paying job saving the planet than an inexpensive adult dress.
shoes - Imagine by Vince Camuto
earrings - They were my gramma's.

After the interview, I slipped into something more comfortable.
