thank you! okay, so, like, I never buy clothes full price. seriously. never. I always try to shop smart—so I trawl sites like Outnet, Yoox, sale sections of Net-a-porter, shopbop, and of course sales at actual department stores too. it’s really important to have a good relationship with salespeople at your favorite shops so they call you when things go on sale. and I’m a big fan of shops like Zara and JCrew. it’s all in the mix, you know? buy expensive pieces that you think you’ll love forever, but mix in crazy “trend” pieces from high street retailers xx
if you aspire to work in PR, check out my friend Alexis’ website http://theprcloset.tumblr.com/. she’s worked in beauty and fashion PR and knows her stuff! she’s also on twitter @theprcloset.com. as for my job, honestly, it was a little bit of trial and error. I was pre-med, pre-law, interviewed at financial firms like Goldman Sachs, interned at hospitals, worked in PR for a summer, and came across an internship at Harper’s Bazaar before I knew magazines were the right fit for me. that one internship made all the difference. when you know you know, I suppose! from there, it was a lot of hard work and a little bit of luck!
