Work shoes every woman should own

Marlin Monroe once said – “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world!”

I totally agree with her. Your footwear has the power to make or break your look and equal importance should be given while choosing shoes for your formal look.  I am listing down the list of Top 5 basic pumps shoes for everyday look.  You can match and wear these pumps with almost all the dresses and rock the day.

Pumps 1 – Black pumps are probably the most used and abused pumps in anyone’s wardrobe.  If you cannot decide on matching any other color with your dress, then black is your safest bet. This Dorothy Perkin shoe is the perfect style with formal looks and comfortable heel. The leather finish is subtle and wearable every day.

Pumps 4 – When you wear the regular formal colors daily, it is mandatory to include at least one peppy color in your collection to wear on a cheery day.  This yellow Lara Karen shoe is pure love, colour being the highlight still keeping it little subtle for you to easily carry it with your look.

Generation Y : An interview

Baby Boomer(Interviewer): Please come in Mr Gen Y.

Gen Y (Candidate): Hello Sir, How are your doing?

BB: I am good. Thank you. Please take a seat.   (Which GenY had already taken. BB confused

Okay, So Mr Y. Lets start. You can start with your brief introduction.

GenY: Umm. Okay. Well Mr B, I am a tech guy. I graduated around 3 years back and have worked with two companies. I left my last job around 6 months back as I had this idea of developing a really cool app, but it didn’t work out well. So I guess its time for me to start working at the moment.

BB: Okay. So you have this entrepreneurial brain. If you don’t mind, could you tell me what app were you working on… and don’t worry, I would not steal your idea.. Ha ha ha

GenY: Ha ha. Well, no one can sir. I have already patented my app idea. I am pretty sure that i will develop this app. So I am working on an app which will read your brain signals before you write in Google search bar and will give you results without writing. Hence no need to type in search bar. The app will do that work. Pretty cool haan..

BB: O really. It sounds quite interesting, but I don’t you think its a little overconfidence that reflects in patenting your idea. You haven’t even developed the app and the idea is patented. This kind of over confidence can be risky for our organization.

GenY: Well, I don’t think so sir. I have patented the idea coz I know I will make it. And even if someone else makes it before me, he will have to be in terms with me regarding the selling of it and I will have my own share. So overall a win-win situation for me.

BB: Okay, it sounds calculated, but still I would call it over-confidence. Well, leave it.

Could you tell me will you leave the job if you develop your app.

GenY: Yes Sir. definitely.

BB(Confused and Amused): Young boy, then why should I hire you. You might leave the job within next few months or years. Why would I waste time in hiring you, showing you everything and then you leaving. Its a complete loss for me.

GenY: Well, Its not at all lost. If you agree that I am technically good, then even if I stay for few months, I will be an asset an important resource for the company. And to be honest, who stays in a company for too long nowadays.

BB: Well, i don’t appreciate people leaving jobs too often. It reflects your loyalty and integrity.

GenY: Loyalty..!!!! But I am not cheating or stealing anything from the organization. One never says how long is he going to stay in the organization. So how is it a question on my loyalty and integrity if I leave company in sometime.

BB: It is. You ought to serve the company. Company teaches you things. How can you leave once you have learnt it.

GenY: Well, to my side, I would say that I have served the company with my talent and technical skills. So it was certain give and take transaction.

BB: Give and take..!! What are you, a businessman??? Its a job my dear. You work for the company.

GenY: No sir. Company needs resources, we need jobs. We work together. Simple.

BB: Its not simple and to be honest, I don’t like your attitude. You are casual in your approach and I don’t appreciate it in my organization. So I think, I have my decision about your hiring.

GenY: Well Sir. I also don’t appreciate the approach in which company expects to be the one who takes calls. So I guess I also have my opinion and decision about the job.

BB: Great Then. Bye Mr Y

GenY: Bye Mr BB. Good luck. (walks out….)
