I’ve been way TOO busy and my personal blogging has lacked completely. But you probably didn’t need me to tell you that. I have three university assignments to complete and I haven’t even touched two of them. But you probably don’t care about that. Actually, I thought people liked reading personal stuff when viewing blogs but a Huffington Post employee spoke about blogging in a talk held at university and told us to not ramble on about our “depressing” and “crazy” lives…something which I’m doing this very minute.
I promised in my last post that I’ll post links of my posts from TheStyleColumn, so here are the ones catered towards high-end fashion trends:
1) Alexander McQueen SS’12 Review:
2) Print & Pattern (but you’ll see a little of my thechiquelady print and pattern post is similar to this):
3) Gothic Glory:
…and the rest will be pasted as I complete them. I’ve just submitted a post on the ‘velvet’ trend luring about. You know the material everyone moans about because it looks grannified or as some boys like to say, “sissy”? Yeah, that. You’ve probably guessed that I neither think it’s grannified or sissy or whatever other insult you’re going to chuck at it. Christian Louboutin have some awesome velvet shoes and Tony Burch has a burgandy blazer which is tempting, but not so tempting as the price tag.
As many of you know, I’m now an intern at TheStyleColumn (wooo). I’m having an amazing time…the team members I’ve met so far have been extremely helpful and friendly.
Rammah, the CEO of TheStyleColumn, I first met at my interview (well, duh) and I gratefully got the impression that I won’t be making tea for her 24/7 as part of my tasks. She warmed me into the team really well and got me all excited for the internship. Rammah if you ever read this, it doesn’t mean I won’t ever make you tea!
There’s a girl named Amrit Bansal (read her posts on TSC, she’s a talented amigo) who eats McDonalds…yes, McDonalds and not a piece of lettuce! Nice to know not ALL girls who work in fashion sip on green tea and selective salad options daily. I first met Amrit right after she (bless the poor girl) took the 120+ steps UP at Queensway station…pain, pain, pain. :( Here’s a link to her personal blog: http://tillyslittletreasures.blogspot.com/
And there’s Vaskar, or ‘witty’ as he likes to call himself. Such a kind person! Nice to know not all people in fashion only shout “do the dustbin!” to their delegates. Vaskar’s cool because I am HATING wordpress at the moment, I simply cannot align my images correctly. So I just end up emailing the pics to Vaskar so he can do it. I’m learning slowly and surely. (by the way, he’s another talented amigo, read his work too.)
I haven’t met anyone else properly yet, but I look forward to meeting them!
To be perfectly honest, I’m not sure why I gave these introductions. But now that you know them too, if I ever mention their name to you…you won’t be confused. And for those friends of mine who claim they read my blog but really don’t, I’ll now know when you give me the :S face on mentioning a co-workers name.
I have some cool press events coming up! I’ll be at the ‘Three Floor’ collection preview tomorrow. It’s a brand new website…lucky me for being able to take a sneak peak at what will be going up! I’ve had a look at the lookbook, it all looks very promising. I’ll be completing a post for TSC about the launch tomorrow evening. So I’ll paste it to you here on Saturday, hopefully.
On November 23rd, I have a Christian Louboutin event, woohay! I doubt I’ll get free shoes though.
