This Week in Fashion & The Job Situation

  Friday, July 30, 2010 at 8:15 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,,,, 
Before I get to my outfits for the week I have some really fun news about work!  Firstly, they are going to keep me on!  My hours will go down since there won't be much for me to do but its still something. I'm hoping it will still be a few days a week, that's enough for now.  Both the guys I work with also said they would have work for me from their own clients that I could do as well. (Graphic and Web design stuff ;) )

I also learned that one of the guys I work with used to work in the fashion industry! And he said one day after work we should go thrifting together! (He's 40 & married, but it should be fun anyway, he's don't worry he won't pull anything, haha).  AND my boss told me his wife works at *drum roll*....CHANEL!!!!!  So I'm gonna get my feelers out and see if she can get me an internship or something there...doing ANYTHING, unlikely but I can dream, right?

Now on to my outfits! The photos are garbage as usual, stupid camera!
Wednesday I have two outfits because on Wednesday night I went to an outdoor concert with my aunts and uncles, our family friend Kevin Parry and his band were playing.  They even dedicated a song to all of us ;)
