Off the wagon

I know I shouldn't have, but I really, really couldn't deny myself the pleasure of adding to my footwear collection any longer. I have been a good, responsible girl and not set foot inside a shoe shop for the last 9 months, and it's been hard. So today, in Amsterdam, I caved. "Buy one pair, get another for 1 euro!", the banner outside read. Can I help it that the boots I fell in love with weren't in the sales? I still got the pumps, that were, for that next to nothing price...





As for the black-and-grey suede over-the-knee boots that made me fall off the wagon, all I can do is hope and pray that at least one of the positions I've interviewed for in the last two weeks results in a firm job offer.



Today's interview took place in Apple's Sales & Marketing office in Amsterdam centre, and I think it went OK. I can't say for certain though, as we veered off-topic quite a lot, and (as they're looking for someone to start in the position as per April 1st and leave again in September), they may be a little concerned about my applying for other jobs both now and in the future.

Oh really? So the shoe department of Amsterdam's major department store doesn't count, huh?

Love the pumps. But I'm very concerned about your memory lapse. :p

Well, technically, that's not really a shoe shop, is it? Or maybe just not to me ;-)

If only you'd have been with me this afternoon. I might still have had some brass in pocket...

It's been a while since I did one. And if I don't get a job at the end of all these interviews, it'll be a while yet before the next one!

Also, this is how I imagine your closet... only with clothes. http://www.paperbean.com.au/blog/elton+john+closet+monique+gibson+arch+digest.jpg
