Chasing The Dream...At A Snails Pace.

Wow, so I have FINALLY made it on to my own blog after once again, being a neglectful writer. The few months Post University have been surprisingly stressful. Apart from a much needed fortnight relaxing in Spain, I have had to try and bottle my ever growing enthusiasm, for getting out there in to the REAL fashion world and tone things down to Gloucester level…I can assure you, other than my lovely family and a few sheep, there is not a lot going on!

The aim being to get a cheeky retail job, learn to drive, intern in the big city and ultimately save up some cash; so that in the new year, I can start the proper adventure in to my career…London’s calling!

I thought that getting back in to the driving seat would be the tough part, with memories of my shaky legs on the breaks four years ago playing on my mind; surprisingly I took to it like a duck to water…like Lewis Hamilton to a Mercedes…or something like that. Getting a job on the other hand – NOT SO EASY! I guess what they say is true, just because I have a degree, a bloody good one at that (I also received my results and will be graduating in November with a First Class Honours!), it doesn’t make it any easier to get a job. I have recently had a couple of interviews, so fingers crossed a bit of luck AND money will come my way soon.

Speaking of luck, having sent off what felt like HUNDREDS of Covering Letters to various fashion brands, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a response (within 24 hours) from renowned fashion weekly, LOOK Magazine. Yep, it’s official, I will soon be spending a whole month in London, working in the fashion department of LOOK, assisting on shoots and working in their no doubt AMAZING wardrobe. I am so unbelievably excited and can’t wait for a taster in to the industry that I just know is made for me!

Alongside job hunting, catching up with friends/family/boyfriend and the odd bit of baking, I am now writing weekly features for two fashion companies…Model Advice and Hailstyle (make sure to check them both out lovely readers!). I am hoping this will just about scratch the fashion itch for now, keep my mind focused on the industry and get my name out there as much as possible.

Despite everything feeling a little slow right now, especially when I am so eager to just go out in to the working world and chase my dreams; I guess my initial home goals are going to plan…I am learning to drive, freelance writing and have a London internship lined up, all I need is a YES on the job front and things are going ok.

In the fashion world…Autumn is approaching, my ABSOLUTE favourite season and yet again the catwalks have not let me down! I am not so in to the whole girly pink thing going on, but am in LOVE with the tartan takeover. Grunge is back again, only a lot prettier than previous seasons; think black leathers and red checks, combined with delicate sheers…Saint Laurent are definitely rocking the trend well.

COME ON JOB OFFERS, this girl has a winter wardrobe to purchase!
