Yuck.....January Vogue Cover

I love Rachel McAdams. I have even admitted to having a slight girl crush on her. But I didn't even recognize her on this cover of Vogue.

I mean, it doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to figure out why this picture is so unflattering. SHE LOOKS OLD. The hair color and length aren't the problem, it's the way it's styled....paired with the outfit. I'm not gonna lie, at first glance I thought it was Meryl Streep (not that she isn't fabulous....because she is...she's just not exactly young).

Also, I believe that Rachel looks MUCH better as a brunette (agree?). Nothing wrong with being blond (I am myself) but if a look works, STICK WITH IT. I know Rachel likes to experiment with her look which is totally fine..but couldn't Vogue have put this together better? I don't know.... it just looks.....blah.

Better luck next time, Vogue.

Play Dress Up With Zoe

This Rachel Zoe Barbie doll is up for auction for charity. What a great idea. I mean who hasn't wanted to play dress up with Rachel Zoe? (Well, I kind of hoped that she would dress me up.) The proceeds go to Project Angel Food. Click here to place your bid!

Maybe She Needs Some Hairspray?

So....Amanda Bynes on the cover of Cosmo for January 2010....

Not really a fan of this look.

She's too blond, too tan, and with the pairing of the light pink and yellow...I don't just reads bimbo to me. And I know that that's the farthest thing from being her! I didn't even realize it was her at first.

Then again, I have been underwhelmed by Cosmo. I hate to say it, but I'm kind of sick of it. It's like, how many sex positions do you need to know? Offer me something I haven't seen from you before, Cosmo.

That's all.

Au Revoir Lucky

I am officially a retired Lucky magazine intern.

Friday was my last day and being that my boss Kofi wasn't in, I figured it was going to be a breeze.

I was wrong.

We were incredibly busy. There was a photo shoot going on downtown, so you better believe there were plenty of errands to run. I ran all over mid town picking up samples from designers, quickly checked them in, and the other intern ran them to the shoot. Meanwhile, I was left to do tons of projects including returns, check ins, organization..the works. I was extremely exhausted by the end of the day.

It was a nice reminder though of how far I've come. In the beginning of this semester, when I first started the internship, I was getting pretty hard on myself. Even though I had fashion closet experience, it was a different publication, so things were run differently and I was having a hard time. But before long, I got the grasp of everything. I felt really appreciated on Friday when had to say goodbye to my boss, Becca. She told me that I could contact her for a reference any time and that she thought I did a great job. And you know what? I think I did too.

You have to work hard at what you love to get where you want to be. I'm so tempted to apply for another internship for next semester, now that this one is over, but my schedule won't allow it.

One semester left until I have to look for a job. Let's hope the fashion magazine industry will turn around a little and will be looking for fresh faces, soon.

Only One Day Left

Today was my second to last day of my internship at Lucky. I didn't realize how sad it was going to make me until today. Yes, I woke up numerous mornings cursing the fact that the sun was not yet up, so why should I? Also, I definitely got down on myself from time to time when I would spend hour after hour searching for a purse and coming up empty handed. But now that it is almost over, I know for a fact that I definitely going to miss it. I learned so much and feel that I am another step closer of fulfilling my dreams. (Sappy, I know).

When I don't have an internship in the industry, I feel out of the loop. Like the fashion world is existing without me. Only one more semester until I am done with college. Then the real fun begins...the search for a job! That's incredibly scary especially now that the fashion industry is folding magazines left and right. But, people will always need fashion. We can't walk around naked! So there will be a job for me out there.

Stay tuned for a post about my last day.
