On Tuesday, I sort of melted down with excitement and nerves and decided the only way to cure it was to go shopping. I wanted to buy a great outfit for the meeting with FSG. But what do you wear to a fancy meeting with your publishing team in New York? I wasn't sure either. So this is how it went down:
Saleswoman: Hi! Is there anything you are looking for today?
Me: Yes, I have an important meeting next week.
Saleswoman: Well, we have lots of suits.
Me: Um, that's not exactly what I'm looking for.
Saleswoman: What about a nice cardigan? We have some argyle ones.
Me: Yeah, I'm not really an argyle girl.
Saleswoman: What do you have in mind?
Me: Something that epitomizes me.
Saleswoman: *Blank stare*
Me: Yeah, I'll just look around.
I did find an outfit that is totally me and I'll post pics on Monday morning from my hotel!
