Hair Raising, part II

Just got back from the salon and everything went great! My friendly interviewer and I really hit it off and he seemed very interested. I'll try not to get my hopes up too high, but I definitely LOVED the vibe of the place and am VERY interested in working there. I'll know by Monday afternoon. For those of you praying folks out there, thanks for any you might have offered up. I appreciate every single one.

And to those of my readers who cast their ballot in the clothing vote, I am grateful to you all. I went with my gut and wore neither outfit. I warned you that might happen. In the end I opted for something light and breezy, as it's still a million degrees in my car and the blouse (being white) is much more resistant to cat hair than the rest of my wardrobe (which is primarily black).

Here's what I wore:

The shirt is a favorite HK purchase of mine and has nice little button detailing down the front. And for all female readers wondering about my hair, I wore it very straight and simple, parted down the middle (channeling my mother's look from her younger days).

Thanks again for all the feedback. You guys are great!




PS Rumor has it my sister-in-law's husband's aunt was none-too pleased that I went nearly 2 weeks without posting. I'm very sorry about that and I'll try not to let it happen again unless I have a very, very good reason. Like if there's a nuclear disaster. Or if MTV develops a 24-hour pageant channel. Or if I give birth to kittens. Gotta keep the fans happy!

Good choice! You look FAB! Let us know how it goes. I have a friend who went to school in San Diego and knows alot of people there and will ask her to pull out the big guns for your job search. But hopefully this one will work out!

From the distance, you look like Ginny Weasley--WITH STYLE!! :)

Emily said...

Aw. I love Ginny Weasley! (and Erika)

Oh, the rumors were true. The sister-in-law's husband's aunt was a wee bit upset that you were letting us hanging. You have an obligation to your fans, yes. Your outfit choice was a good one. At first I liked the skirt but after seeing your final choice, you were the wise one. You looked very nice. I would have hired you. Good luck on the job. We'll be anxious to hear. Mary Ann

And PS Don't think giving birth to kittens would be a legitimate excuse for leaving one's fans waiting.

Jane said...

Nicely done, Erika. You looked amazing. I've got a good feeling about this job.

Mary Ann-

You have a valid point. Giving birth to kittens might in fact be quite a good reason to blog. As would a nuclear disaster AND a 24-hour pageant channel. Guess I'll have to re-think that a bit...

You looked great and here's hoping you get good news re: the job today. That would suit you to a "T". Now remember, when you're sitting there meeting and greeting and answering the phone, you are not to rest your head on your arm on your desk...ala Katy. LOL!

Were these photos taken in your apartment? So much room!!!

Erika, I'm so sorry I missed the voting process on the outfit! I honestly think your final choice was better than the previous two options though! Sort of in between dressy and casual!!! Hope you got good news today!

Any word on the job? I've been praying! Can't wait to hear...
