What no one tells you about postgrad life though is that finding a good entry level gig in your field of choice can take up to like six months. F**k that, I thought. It can’t be that hard.
Not only did I choose the wrong universities for my career interests, but also I knew no one in my field to whom I could reach out to. Last summer, stuck at a shitty internship that I hated, I realized I was sick of waiting around for my dream job to come to me. I was going to have to go out there and chase it down. With a horrible track record from university, there was no way in hell I was a viable candidate for anywhere good. The only solution? Erase my shitty undergraduate history with a year long master’s course.
Fashion month is now well underway. I’ve stalked the New York and London collections (all subpar, in my opinion) and now the attention has been turned towards Milan and Paris…Whatever my fashion week status may be though, I always follow a set of guidelines on how you should comport yourself. Keep reading to find out how to look like you belong on the FROW even if you may not even possess an invite.
“People can laugh all they want, but what they don’t know is this blog got me into the #1 fashion school in the world, has landed me numerous internships, and has given me a shit ton of self confidence along the way.”
“I cling onto relationships which clearly aren’t working out, and I obsess over each and every text, looking for clues as to how I made the guy lose interest.”
A standout designer accessory is a key part of any girl’s wardrobe. If you’re dropping a fortune on a pair of shoes or a handbag though, you better make sure it won’t go out of style faster than the most recent Yeezy collection.
“I’m tired, I’m hungry, and I look fugly. Can we please leave already?” I complained on a recent photoshoot with STALK’s photographer, Christina. Not only did I sound like an ungrateful bitch, I looked like one too. I suffer from Resting Bitch Face—a common condition among many young women. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, RBF is when someone’s face, in its natural state, looks bitchy.
