Fun fact: I took these at 8 p.m. last night after getting home, rushing to grab my camera and my tripod, and hurrying outside in hopes of snapping a few photos before it got too dark. I ended up having to stay late at my internship, but my desire to have a post up today overpowered my exhaustion and lack of food in my stomach. That's how committed I am to this blog. And how committed I am to having something to do in my morning.
We found out about a fitting happening today (when I'm not in the studio) last minute, so my boss and her assistants spent all of yesterday making trips to a dozen showrooms around L.A. doing pulls. After the showroom gets everything together that the stylist wants to borrow, then it's up to interns to go pick up the items, unpack them, and check them in at the studio. That's how I ended up driving to showrooms all over Sunset Boulevard, Melrose, and other places with designer clothes in my backseat. It's technically grunt work, and driving in downtown L.A. makes me want to hyperventilate, but it's still pretty surreal that it's my job. I don't think sorting through racks of designer clothes will ever get old.
I've learned that dressing comfortable is key. All day is either spent sitting in a hot studio or running around the hot city. A lightweight dress, a cardigan for the gloomy mornings, and flats have become my uniform. This dress is another one of my go-to dresses that never needs much accessorizing. A couple of the other interns have come in heels, but they always end up taking them off during the day. These Need Supply Co. ankle strap flats are so simple, but I'm in love with them. They might blend into my very white legs, but they go with everything.
Also, I'm going to start putting my stuff up on eBay, but it's not too late to nab things from my Storenvy store!
