pencil skirt

Sans Excitement

For my second day at my new job at the radio station, I paired a crisp white button-up with my grey pencil skirt. Not a huge departure from yesterday’s look but I’m experiencing a work-appropriate shoe deficit and didn’t have a lot to work with. I knew I had to correct this issue so guess what I did on my lunch break today. Yeah, man! Shoe Shopping!!

I know. Nothing exciting. But at least I managed to snap some crappy pics and keep up with my daily threads posts!

I wore my hair in a low, loose bun for most of the day.

Thats all for today. I’m wiped. I’m still adjusting to waking up before noon now.

Rock & Roll History lesson :: October 9 :: Today would’ve been the 72nd birthday of the late John Lennon. It is also the 37th birthday of his son, Sean Ono Lennon. Happy Birthday, John. You are missed! and Happy Birthday, Sean!

Plum Luck

Today was my first day at the new job at the radio station and all my daily threads dreams have come true! (sort of). At my new job, I do not have a uniform, I do not have to wear my hair up and back all the time, I can wear nail polishes other than nudes and pinks. I can wear (just about) whatever I want.

Over the weekend, I did some shopping for some new clothes for my new job and will be able to feature daily my new looks! This means consistent Daily Threads posts and I am thrilled! I’m am quite the lucky girl!

One of the new pieces I wore today is this beautiful Plum Purple silky blouse that I picked up at Marshalls for $12.99. Purple, especially deep purples, are big colors for fall/winter 2012.

I paired the plumb top with a new black pencil skirt. ($10.99? at Ross)

Seafoam Green Mystique Handbag. (Marshall’s $24.99)

Some of my accessories. I also wore my black watch.

And my ugly shoes.

These are the black flats I wore every day to my job at the hotel. While buying clothes all weekend, I didn’t get any shoes and came to realize that I had dumped all my flats when I moved earlier this year (they were all quite worn.) I need to do some serious shoe shopping because I cant stand looking down at these hideous things anymore.

I kept my makeup quite simple and neutral.

Thanks for reading! I very excited to feature my daily threads each day and hope I can excel in my attempts to find fun, work appropriate combinations each and everyday. Combos worthy of being blogged about.

Love, GK

Dressed for Success!

Earlier in the week, I submitted my resume for an open position at a super-cute, super-British, fancy-schmancy and completely adorable hotel down in Palm Beach. On of my best friends works in the hotel’s restaurant (which is absolutely gorgeous btw!) and he heard of the opening, suggested they consider me and had me forward the appropriate people my resume.

Well, today I had my interview and it went beyond perfect! The managers seems really great and the atmosphere is amazing. I’ve always enjoyed working in hospitality and never intended to work in medical reception for as long as I did. Even when I was doing marketing for the clinics, it was all too “medical”. (And I was damn good at Marketing for the record! Damn, Good!) But I always enjoyed and felt I “shined” when I was working in Hospitality. (That kind of sounds like something a hooker would say, doesn’t it? … I’m not a hooker… if I were a hooker, I’d have much nicer clothes.)

Back to the interview. The interview went extremely well and they must have liked me because they called me tonight and told me I had the job. I’m heading down there again tomorrow to fill out all the necessary paperwork. I’m calling the clinic tonight to quit. … They need me to start immediately. (and I’m ready to move on… ASAP.)

But how could you not want to hire this? Here’s what I wore (I got to take my Hamilton Tote for a day out!)

I look a litte scarey; super exhausted. Excuse my eyes.

White Oxford – $30(?) Bealls. Black Pencil Skirt. Michael Kors Hamilton Tote. Got my pearls on too! (none of those faux ones either! not today!)

Wow... super tired. Plus the sky was still bright but dark enough not to need my shades so I was partially squinting. That's the look of light-sensitive pain!

The whole look. Top-to-Bottom

Brand new, White Oxford – $30(?) from Bealls. One of my many Black Pencil Skirts. (If you don’t own one: a.) whats wrong with you? b.) go buy one.) Slate Micheal Kors Hamilton Tote. My new $25 watch from Bealls (I need to invest in a good one. This one’s just a temp.) Grey Suede BCBG Wedges.

Grey Suede BCBG Wedges. Slate Michael Kors Hamilton Tote. cheap-ass watch from Bealls.

 

Tonight was opening night for Annie, the show my guy is currently doing sound for. Fate designed that our busy paths crossed today with us both all spiffed out. (He looks so adorable.)

Looking Snazzy
