Possibly My Dream Job

Hello friends!!!

I have exciting news. As a lot of you know, I have been on the job hunt. As a recent college graduate, I wasted no time jumping into mailing off resumes and searching (what seemed to be endlessly) for a new job. While I loved being a Clinique Consultant, it just wasn’t the career I wanted for myself. That being said, I stopped at nothing to find a job in the Visual Merchandising field.

Luckily, I received countless emails and phone calls from companies who wanted to interview me. After seven interviews with different companies, I received an offer from Elaine Turner in Nashville. While I had been into this adorable boutique a few times, it never actually dawned on me to apply. However, LinkedIn had other plans. Being on LinkedIn is such a great way to connect and discuss job opportunities with many different employers and employees alike. I came across the store manager’s profile and decided to message her to see if there were any job openings in visual. After three interviews, I was in!

After accepting the position I felt empowered. Not only am I the Visual Lead, but I am also a supervisor. I’ve never had managing experience and I am so glad to be training in a management position. This will give me the opportunity to move up within the company.

So here’s a little about this great company:

Elaine Turner was started in 2000 when Elaine Turner and her husband decided to start a fun lifestyle boutique in Houston, TX. The company has had a lot of success and has opened eleven stores. Most of them in Texas and one in New York and one in Nashville. The company is mainly a retailer of handbags and shoes but also carries unique jewelry, clothing, and tech accessories. I am so excited to be a part of this trendy company and can’t wait to grow.

Internship

Hello everyone! As some of you know, I have started my college internship. I am in my last term of fashion school and cannot wait to graduate in December! As a part of my last term, my school requires their students to have at least one hundred and twenty hours of an internship related to the student’s related field study. It took me a while to find my internship. I was very picky. I didn’t want to intern for a huge corporation but I wanted a credible internship. After searching for a few months, I found the perfect internship opportunity.

Let me just tell you; it’s all about networking. I met a business owner at work (where I sell makeup and skincare all day). My co-worker was helping her and noticed her adorable necklace. When she asked who made it the woman informed her that she did. She is a local jewelry designer/maker. My co-worker knows I love everything fashion and cute and we all began talking about her business. We exchanged contact information.

A few weeks later it hit me. Why not intern for this awesome company?! So I got in touch with her and after a few meetings, we decided I would intern for her. Anyway, I am so incredibly excited to be an intern for Christina Kober Designs! If you would like to check out her work visit her website! christinakoberdesigns.com or find her on Etsy! Her jewelry is so unique and simplistic. I’m in love with her jewelry!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic week!

Sweet September

It’s here folks! September. Fall. All things great. Pumpkin Spice Latte’s, Football, leggings and boots and of course chunky sweaters. And although there’s not a crisp fall air here in Nashville yet, I’m very excited for September! Not only is my birthday this month, but September is the first official month of the Autumn season. Along with deliciously flavored latte’s, there are fantastic Labor Day deals on fashion! Over the holiday weekend I hit up the mall. Here are my fall fashion findings!

So excited about this amazing short mini skirt with front zippers. I will definitely wear this with a sheer black top tucked in with a pair of knee high black boots! It would also go great with a cropped leather jacket! Skirt is from Forever21.

Getting Ready For Fall Y’all

Out with the old and in with the new. At least, that’s how the saying goes. This summer has been everything but boring. But, I’m definitely ready for Fall! After all, the autumn is my favorite season of the year. It’s almost time for pies, pumpkin spice latte’s, sweaters, Leggings, crisp fall air, orange leaves, Football (even if I don’t like sports), dark lips, scarves, and oh so much more. I can’t wait!!!! That being said, I organized my closet this evening in preparation for Fall.

Bye bye bright colors!

Fall fashion is my favorite! There’s nothing better than knee high boots, boot socks, scarves, plaid, herringbone fabrics, leather jackets, mittens, and a sexy dark red lip.

Hope you’re already for Fall!
