I wish i could show a pic of this fabulous Lady, i swear to you your jaws would drop to the floor!
But she doesn't want too, camera shy and all

This is what i wore yesterday at the party!

Her BF likes my style but wouldn't go out with me- To eccentric he says...

Happy Birthday to your mom! I like that galactic skirt - very celebratory!
I am so impressed with your job search process. I love that you are taking it all very calmly and carefully, not getting jumpy or emotional. Yet you are working so hard at it! I don't know anyone who could keep such a good balance between enjoying the time off and maintaining focus on the job or looking for a job.
I know this is all going to pay off for you with something just perfect!

Good luck with your second interview, and Happy Bday to your mom!

I wish she wasn't camera shy...I would love to see your mom...I bet she is as cute as you are. I hope the job search is stirring up some good leads. I love these fun patterned tights!!

Joni said...

Well honestly, if you came in to my work place looking like that I would hire you in an instant!! Not just by appearance, but also by the life force you bring forth. You have great energy Ariane!

Val Sparkle said...

That suede jacket looks so soft and yummy! And only $3 - amazing, although I've also had good luck getting a suede jacket second-hand. Yours looks wonderful in that outfit. I hope it brought you good luck in the interview!

Vix said...

Happy Birthday to your Mum, what a shame she's camera shy, I bet she's fabulous!
Love those zingy leggings and your interview outfit is absolutely gorgeous, if you don't get the job then the company is clearly insane!
Good luck, gorgeous! xxx

Franca said...

joyeux anniversaire pour ta maman! I love your interview outfit fingers crossed for you!

Pull Your Socks Up! said...

Oh my freaking god could you actually get any more gorgeous? How is it that you look like you've just stepped out from a year in Spa Fabulous? I'll bet your mum is utterly gorgeous too and I'm guessing by your post, you think so too!!! Give this woman a job!!! But make sure you keep her happy K? Coz she's one-in-a-million!! xoxoxoxoxox

Patti @ NotDeadYet Style said...

Happy birthday to your mom! I am loving your gorgeous, colorful looks, and fab new haircut. Good luck with the job and thanks for linking up : > xoxoxo

PinkCheetahVintage said...

You look great!! Love the last outfit with all the blue. Too bad your mom said no to pics-- Happy B-day to her!

grunge-queen said...

Love the galaxy skirt and the yellow sweater reminds me, happily, of one very much like that that I had in the 80s. Your interview outfit is fab and I'm sure you impressed the pants of them. Nice that you had a happy celebration with your Mom. My Mom is 71 as well but I was living in the UK for her bday. Now we send a big bunch of flowers so she knows we're thinking of her. Hope the deep freeze is getting better in MTL, and I'm so happy you're getting out there and attacking your job search with such zeal. You have so much spunk that you won't stop until you find something that's perfect for you! Xoxo

Miss Simmonds Says said...

three utterly fantastic outfits! I love the chunky yellow jumper and the chevron leggings. Fantastic... oh and the glittery skirt. I also love the other yellow top and soft brown jacket. All lovely!

Bella Q said...

If I ever am seen wearing bright blue tights, you should know it's because of your influence.

Birthday? Birthday? Hope it was happy!

pastcaring said...

You are rocking the skirts/sweaters at the moment, Ariane, with all your trademark flair for colour! Love your interview outfit, hope you get a second interview.
Happy birthday to your mum, I bet she looks wonderful! xxx

Izzywizz said...

Wooaah, rocking leggings in your first outfit, looove!! The colour combination in the last outfit is a sight for sore eyes :)

sabine said...

Hello Ariane,
happy birthday to your Mom! I imagine that she's a wonderful, good looking, stylish lady. What a pity that she is camera shy.
Fortunately you are not. I would miss your wonderful outfits.
I love your yellow sweater and the glittering skirt, too cute!
And again you found the perfect outfit for an interview.
I keep my fingers crossed for the second interview.
Take good care of you and have a nice birthday party with your Mom.
Lieben Gruß von Sabine

Tell your mom your daughter's fans want to see her! :)

You are just so dang cute Ariane! All of these outfits rock. I think what you are wearing to interviews is perfect. You look so friendly, approachable, fun, but also intelligent and confident.

Claire Justine said...

Good luck on the interview, you look great, loving the colours :)

Marla Robinson said...

You really are so adorable. I love this. That gold sweater and that wonderfully colored suede jacket and skirt look fabulous with your skin tone. I think your style is so cute. Happy Birthday to your mom and pooh-pooh on her BF. Too eccentric?? No way!

Sacramento Amate said...

I love each and everyone of your colourful ensembles, my dearest friend.
You alre always such an inspiration.

Luna Tiger said...

Encore des tenues superbes ! J'adore la jupe de la première ! Our répondre à ta question, j'ai beaucoup beaucoup de chaussures ! Il faudrait que je fasse un post à ce sujet !

Rosemary the Shopper said...

Mega cute! I'm sure you will find just the right job, something that really suits you. It might just take a bit of time.

Would LOVE to see that photo of your mother. Tell her your fans want to see her. Tell her allow a photo, it's a public service!

Me encanta el jersey!!!!

kaffesoester said...

Great leggings in the first outfit! The second outfit is such happy colours, you like a sun beam on a dark winter's day. They're crazy if they don't hire you!

I'll have to do my own interpretation of the third outift, I love those colours! I nearly had it today, almost same colour skirt and tights, but "wrong" top!

Mary Lou said...

oh your zigzag leggins are great darling! all those colors make me wanna sip rainbowcoloured cocktails now! good luck with the job interviews!

Melanie said...

You have the best leggings/tights! I would have hired you in an instant too - how could I not? You look artsy, smart, gorgeous.
Happy birthday to your mum. She's a pretty cool woman from what I know about her. All the best in her new year! Hugs and good wishes for a second interview.

señora Allnut said...

love all that mustard-yellow on every outfit you wear, fabulous mustard and purple color combo, great jacket and pretty little beret and scarf, and finally, so nice blue touch!
so bright and fabulous!

Cambria said...

Ooooh love the second outfit with the awesome beret! Happy that your mom's bday turned out so well :)

Happy birthday to your mum Ariane, I would love to see a pic of her too, it's a shame she's shy, but my mum is the same, very private about her life. Love all your outfits here, the yellow jumper, galactic skirt and chevron tights is especially stunning. Hope you get that second interview and good luck with your job hunting. xx
