Earlier this week was my Vogue interview and the D-Day did not get off to a good start.
Whilst sorting out what i was going to wear the Sunday before, i realised i had only packed one shoe. This would not seem like a major set back - i am in london, i can go shopping right? Thats all very well if you actually have time before the interview to go shopping...
I have no time! The monday i was helping out at a photoshoot (see next blog) and was there from 8.30am - 7.30pm and sadly press sample shoes are not my size. So i had to get up at the crack of dawn THE DAY OF MY INTERVIEW and find suitable shoes!
I have very limited funds to buy new shoes - Primark or New Look are where i pinned my hopes.
This was the dress i had chosen to wear: http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=19551&storeId=12556&categoryId=138613&parent_category_rn=138613&productId=996335&langId=-1
The day of the interview it was raining, so i paired the outfit with a pair of black tights and a denim shirt/jacket. I was looking to buy a pair of black heels to match the outfit but, me being me, I did not contemplate the fact that we are now into the Spring/summer season and there would be no plain black heels around.
Seriously Sh**ing myself right now. I could not find any black shoes within budget to match my stupidly summery and ridiculously floaty dress with black tights. By this time it has half 11 and i had one hour to find the shoes and get over to Vogue House.
I did eventually find shoes, but ended up spending over my original budget, and having to buy some accessories to complete the look. These are the shoes:
I will try and take a picture of my outfit and post it up here!
