I don’t usually talk about too much more than outfits and clothes on this blog but I thought I’d share an update on my life and what I actually do day to day. Monday to Friday I work as a fashion consultant, forecaster and designer. Basically I make a living looking at blogs and online stores and translating them into commercial trends. Sounds amazing and glam but in all honesty, sometimes it can get stale and monotonous just like most other jobs, but at the end of the day I don’t know what else I would be doing. I love it, I love this industry and it takes a lot of rejection and a tough skin to make it through. Not just as a designer, but as a blogger, but I love it.
My blunt mouth has gotten me in trouble more often than not but I never like to sugarcoat things. So if you’re looking to get into this industry please be ready to be hurt, rejected, told (not just in words) that you’re not skilled enough, smart enough or creative enough. However, if you believe in yourself, if you go above and beyond to make your portfolio, your online diary, your blog the best it can be, not copying anyone or competing with anyone else but yourself you’ll be phenomenal & you can move mountains.
I usually hate cliche quotes (seriously), but I was recently reminded that you don’t have to wait around for people to believe in you to fulfill your dreams but you’re allowed to believe in yourself and there’s actually nothing more important than that.
