Did Imelda ever feel this way?

Okay, so today was much, much better than yesterday. Woke up late, shuffled around the house, did some yard work for a while and then headed back to Bellevue Square to go find a nice pair of black pumps. Sounds easy, right?

No. Apparently, no one wears sensible shoes anymore — your choices are chunky kitten heals for the orthopedically impaired, or 4″ stilettos for the young and stupid. Finally found a pair of Via Spiga’s that kind of worked, with four insoles and comfy pieces and whatnot — stopped by Aldo, just for giggles, and found pretty much the perfect pair– and for one third the price and no necessary insole comfy things! Victory!

Taking stock

Okay, so as some of you may know, I am a strange specimen of the female species: I really dislike shopping. So it may come as a shock when you hear that I bought a bajillion sweaters today (in almost as many sweaters- YAR ARGYLE) and some awesome hats (including a black fedora with a purple band – haha!)

In other news, we boiled the chicken from last night and made EPIC stock… pictured are the drippings from the roast, not the completed deal, but isn’t it gorgeous? (It tastes even better).

Ugh. Fall quarter classes start tomorrow. Double ugh.

Last night was awful. Slept in the family room with mom and it was definitely no fun, but I’m glad I was there. Woke up too early, went to work, and came home to… (drumroll, please) an e-mail.

I jumped up and down and ran around and then realized that I have absolutely nothing to wear to an interview of this caliber.

After multiple hours at Nordstrom’s, I’m seriously disgusted with the fashion industry and what the world thinks that young business women my age should wear. I’m sorry, but I don’t think a pink, yellow and brown tweed jacket over a pink and brown camo-print silk shell is in any way “classic”. Ew ew ew. I did find an epic black wool pencil skirt, coupled with my Steve Madden peep-toe pumps and and an amazing cotton blouse from Talbot’s that is simply amazing. So excited – we’ll see how it works out! :)

"These boots are made for walking…

…and that’s just what they’ll do. These boots are made for walking and they’ll walk all over you…”

Sexy new cowboy boots were a consolation prize for getting through this hellish midterm week without jumping off a bridge. Awful, awful week.

Now, I just have to find a cowboy…
