New glasses and interviews

I have an interview today and tomorrow,  as I haven't had an interview in years, it's probably best I do them at once.

I have new glasses, and as usual, every single time I do this, I fall in love, they have diamante detail, they are tortoiseshell, catseye gorgeousness, and a whiff of Dame Edna Everage, perfect.
I get them home and go off them.  Every time.

Nonetheless, I will soldier on.  My bag, the poor old girl is ancient and in retirement, I really love her.  We got together years ago at a charity second hand bag event.  I have taken her everywhere, sadly her handles are becoming loose and I don't whether places exist to fix this, if anyone has advice, please share.  Until then she is used rarely and carefully.

2 old bags - ba boom!


Formality makes me gurn (pull silly faces), I am going to be on my very best behaviour
and say interesting things
haven't thought of any yet


Must remember not to do this, but really what is wrong with showing some frock-age?
I am wearing sensible Mary-Janes, patent leather with a bow, and battered at the back

I haven't thought of anything else that is important for an interview

I will let you know the summary of my interview's
my mantra is
think before you speak


see you soon my lovelies
xxxxxxxxxx

  4. Love your new specs! They look gorgeous on you. Good luck with the interviews. Don't imagine the interviewer naked as I was told to do when I was nervous. It just makes you blurt out weird things and makes for a very awkward interview experience.

  6. Good luck with the interview ... hope it goes excellently.
    As for the bag, over here we have shoe repair, key cutting type people in almost every shopping centre and they fix things like handbags too ... If they can.
    LOVE the glasses ... but I get you ... I fall in love at the shop, but once I'm home doubts start setting in ... but they look fab, so don't worry :0)

  8. You're looking the part, Sandra - great glasses for that hint of intellectual librarian chic, a fab frock, and an old bag, to demonstrate thriftiness and economy. The job's yours! Hope the interviews go well. As long as you don't go in pissed or fart, you'll be fine!
