Hello 2017!

Happy New Year beautiful!

new-years

It is finally 2017 and it is that time of year where everyone is ready to reinvent themselves and better themselves. But lets be real, you don’t need a new year to better yourself.

At the end of 2016, I decided to go back to my roots. LITERALLY (see New Years photo above with my dark hair!). But I also decided I wanted to make more of an effort to better myself and my future.

If you haven’t read my last post where I explain what I have been up to (here), then you wouldn’t know that at the end of October I lost my job. I was working at Kenneth Cole and unfortunately the store had closed. After the store closed, I got an internship at DVF in the fabric department working with two amazing bosses. I am continuing my 3 month internship through January 2017 and I will continue to learn and grow as a person. I also needed a weekend job to continue making enough money to live in New York City. I started ¬†working at Anna Sui Downtown, the only Anna Sui store in the USA. Anna is an amazing designer with cool clothing pieces, a makeup line, and a fragrance line.

I’m sure everyone has heard of Sophia Amoruso, founder of Nasty Gal. In the beginning of 2016, I started reading her book #GirlBoss, and its an amazing motivator that shows you how she started her career. But towards the end of 2016, I started listening to her podcast of the same name where her and other woman who have amazing careers talk about their journey and how they got to where they are. If you haven’t listened to it before and you may be in a slump, I highly recommend listening to the podcast!

I believe 2017 is going to be a great year for not just me, but everyone. If you want to be a better person or you want to further your career, you need to put yourself out there. Whether its staying up all night and applying to every internship you can find or putting a little more effort into the job you already have for a promotion, you can do it!

I can’t wait to see what happens in these next 12 months!

Until next time…

Where Have I Been?!

About a year ago, I got the opportunity to start a job at an amazing store, Kenneth Cole in Soho. The past few months the store has been liquidating, and last week the store officially closed. Through working there I have made the most amazing friends and had so many great experiences.

But when one door closes another door opens. Starting Monday, I will be interning as a fabric assistant at an awesome design house. If you haven’t been reading my blog for awhile, you wouldn’t know that I started a new major this semester: Fabric Styling at FIT. Through this internship I will be doing some of the things I have been learning in my classes.

I will try to post more, about fashion and my experience interning. And I can’t post a blog with including some outfit inspiration, so here are some Fall looks I have been wearing the last few weeks.
