Red, Blue, + One Grey Day

For all of you reading, I am pleased to inform you that I have decided to pick up where I left off from this blog and start posting again. Now that I have graduated and I am the rightful owner to a brand new Bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design, I have SO much more time to focus on continuing Wants, Loves, Must-Haves. At the (very) beginning of the year I packed up and temporarily moved to Los Angeles to complete an internship at One Grey Day.

I have nothing but good things to say about my post-college adventure. It’s almost embarrassing to say that this was my first actual (kinda sorta) job. Other than a couple random jobs in high school, I never had a job through college. I honestly don’t know how I could have managed all of my projects, classes, + countless (delusional) hours in the sewing lab PLUS a job. My internship at One Grey Day was my first responsibility as a college grad. I loved that I brought some of my fashion knowledge to the table and also that I learned just as much. No amount of education can properly prepare you for the real world like experience can. It sure helps, but my internship really helped me grow as a fashion designer AND as a person. Oh, and it didn’t hurt that all of the clothes were AMAZING.
