Well, I have a job interview today and although I searched high and low, I could not find my usual pair of staid, black lace up shoes that I typically pair with my black pants when I’m trying to look “formal.” Although I felt myself in a slight panic, I grabbed my other, more casual – oh let me be honest – they are black, leather tennis shoes that are supposed to be “trendy” with some cream colored laces and some piping. They don’t look terrible, though they have terrible traction and I think my black pants are long enough to cover anything that screams that I don’t really have any fashion sense.
Luckily, when I got to work this morning, I realized that not only do I have a pair of black flats hiding under my desk (terribly uncomfortable, only hauled out when clients come), but I have a very safe pair of black loafers that I keep intending to throw out (I paid two dollars for them more than five years ago – the lining is gone, they tend to smell when worn for more than three hours at a pop).
It will be a good day indeed.
