Delayed panic

Ack! I knew I was taking this new job 'too easily.' Haven't worried about, no concerns, etc. etc. until just now. What to wear? Conservative/Ultra Conservative/Conservative-Sexy/Girly Dress? Gray? Black? Colors? No colors? What shoes? I don't want to TOWER over them; and in heels, I WILL. OMG. PANIC.

I think I'm settling for a conservative black suit with a silk blouse. The skirt's a wee bit shorter than I'd prefer; but the suit as a whole is very appropriate, I think. Plus black's a good color for me.

*Bites nails down to a stump*

Another thing -- duirng the move I actually broke a nail. My nails NEVER break; but when they do, I chop them all down to the broken one's size. So now, I have very short nails. It's odd. YIKES. I procrastinated panicking! How could that happen?

Any suggestions? Wear my hair up or down? Ehhhh...goody. Whenever I pick out what to wear the night before, I ALWAYS change my mind by the next morning. Perhaps I should pull some backup suits just in case...(brown? gray? ANYONE??!).

Black is always good. A shorter skirt shows confidence and coupled with a more conservative suit you won't look like you're filming office porn. Height can make people respect you at first impression, so don't worry about the shoes. Just wear a pair that make you feel confident (I KNOW you know what I'm talking about here - there's nothing better than a pair of "power heels".) And, hair wise, I'm a big fan of the '40s librarian bun - twisted on the sides w/ a very severe bun in the back. It's so far into not hot that it actually becomes hot.

Don't worry about the job. Everything will be fine. You're very competant. *soothing noises*

Thanks :D
You're right. By this morning, I haven't changed my mind and am sticking with my first choice :) I am pulling this hair (ack...should've cut it all off) into a french twist. Better than a bun, same effect ;)

If you allways change you mind in the morning....go to sleep! Then worry about it in the morning when you actually make your choice. You always do well,..most likely no one will notice anyting but a well-dressed professional woman no matter how you dress.

Hahahah! Sleep! Ja!
I might've gotten four hours last night (no, wasn't worried about what to wear, but moving with all this stuff going on).

Actually didn't change my mind this morning. Sticking with original plan (looks good, and I always have power underwear as a backup ;-) )

Thanks! That's sweet, since you know me in real life. :D I don't think, however, that I could pull off 'looking good' in a lemon yellow suit; do you? LOL :D

Even though this is probably too late.
Relax, you will look good in what ever you decide to wear.

Eh
There was no sense in worrying. I show up, and although the offices are elaborate, everyone's fairly casual. Plus, I have a little dungeon in which to hide out :D Woohoo.

Tomorrow? I'm bringing a sweater. It's freezing in here. :P

Ack!
I didn't get e-mail notification that you'd posted. WHAT'S WRONG WITH LJJJJ?

You need to come um...protect/help move me :D

Everything went fine (as you've probably read). I'm just not happy with this getting all businesslike during the day :-I

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
