Clothes and shoes come and go, but quality jewels stay with me. And forget about packing those DVDs with individual cases; they’re going in an accordion CD filer. I just can’t leave without some of my favorite TV shows. It’s a minor catastrophe that The Mindy Project, Made in Chelsea, and 2 Broke Girls aren’t in there already, but that can be easily changed in the near future!

PDX to JFK: What comes in must go out

I’ve got two weeks before I pick myself up from the literal edge of the west coast and plant myself in New York. Moving for anyone is stressful. Moving from one extreme point on a gigantic country’s map to the other? It’s daunting, and yes, I’m doing it with a mere two suitcases and a carry-on.

Interning in the summer, let alone New York’s mid to late-summer humidity, will be no light-hearted achievement. That being said, my new buys will need to be breathable and a bit loose on the shoulders. And I won’t compromise style. It’s posh and polished all the way.

Very exciting news!!

After a full year of post-graduation hustling, I’ve landed my very own design internship with a French footwear and handbag design house in New York beginning May. Yes…I am still a bit shell-shocked, even after thinking of the news a full 24 hours later.

Having poked my head out from the forest and into the sunny meadow, I can say to my readers eagerly seeking an internship…

Under the Gunn, S1E9 “Trouble in the Lounge”

Slide2Slide3

The latest epi of “Under the Gunn” was so unfortunately classless and embarrassing that I just had to comment on my blog.

Throughout the preliminary season, it’s been clear that Natalia has been the ostracized outcast. Through beastial mumbled breaths from the other designers, she has literally been a scarlet red target for many of the designers and, most embarrassingly, the mentors as well.
