You could ask for an update and if there was any feedback on the interview. That would be my suggestion for phrasing it, especially if the initial interview was more than a week ago. The tone I would aim is that, "Hey, I was wondering if you had some news for me..." so that it is just a bit of a general message wondering if there is anything new. If the interview was a day or two ago, I would wait another week before sending this e-mail as you want there to be enough time that you waited patiently in a sense.
Yes, you would be responding to the last e-mail in the chain so that she knows what this would be in regards to you asking. If you feel it necessary you could say, "We are 2/3rds through November now and I just wondered if you could give me an update here," though some may see that as being a bit analytical in the e-mail.
