@LadyBlackheart:  Do you have any colleagues with whom  you can switch shoes and borrow some makeup?

I don’t think the top is much of a concern. Most bookstore staff seem to dress pretty casually.

@LadyBlackheart:  As the fiancee (and co-boss) of someone who owns a used bookstore in the area and has employees for me appearance is important but you don’t need to look corporate. Just look nice. More importantly we look for how personable someone is (our customers need to like you!), attention to detail and last but not least literary knowledge.

As long as you don’t look like a schmuck I wound’t mention it and let your personality shine.

Good luck!!!

@LadyBlackheart:  That sucks. The good news is that it’s almost holiday shopping time. Every year since I graduated college I got a second job over the holidays working at a mall store – easy peasy, good way to make extra money, and fun! I would usually go out the second week of October, decide where I want to work, walk in, ask for the manager, say I was interested in seasonal work, and start training the same week. They’re desperate to hire people. My favorite place to work was Bath and Body Works – no clothes to fold 😉
