Took the day off today. Had a final round "meeting" in the afternoon. Think it went really well. Here's hoping I hear good/life changing news next week. Me needs it ;)
In the evening, I met up with my mom to catch up on a week apart. After dinner we somehow ended up in a pet store and came THIS close to buying my dream puppy: a messy faced shitzu that I could cuddle all the live long day.
In the end we chickened out, favoring our freedom over puppy kisses. Sigh. Made due with manicures instead. Not quite the same.

It was fun to pretend to be an east coast fierce fashionista in mostly black for the last week.
But it felt good to be back in California, the land of color. You just feel lighter and brighter here.
Since the first round had been all about safe black St. John, today I pulled out a vintage suit from the back of my closet with a little more...flair. Picked it up at the UCLA Thrift Store about six years ago, back when I worked in aerospace, wore suits more often and did on camera interviews. In fact, this suit made an appearance on ABC News back in the day. My mom was very proud.
Loved the very Balmain feel of shoulder pads today.
And the color and shape reminded me of Phillip Lim and Louis Vuitton for fall.
But mostly the suit felt very Vuitton today. With the very dated embellishments and nipped in waist of the jacket.
Think Karla - queen of the 80s vintage "they're so fugly they're hot" blazers - would've been proud.
To be honest, I mostly wore the suit because I was shocked it still fit. Should have probably worn a Spanx but didn't want to be uncomfortable mentally and physically during the interview.
Just tried to embrace my ever expanding curves - Kardashian sister style. Though have you seen the non-pregnant ones lately? They are disappearing before our very eyes! I'll snort what their snorting, please.
Instead of a monochrome bag, I opted for a shot of color with the MJ clutch. Figured it would be make more of a statement. And it worked. One of my male interviewers remarked on it.
Love these YLS heels but wish I could have donned more memorable shoes. Like my beloved Prada velociraptors.
Or McQueen's Spring 2010 monstrosities. Talk about so fugly they are hot!
