In addition blogging about specific topics, I will begin my weekly "Tidbits" -- anything I want to say to recap the week.
- Teen Vogue and CosmoGIRL! invited me to visit their offices and meet some of the editors when I am in New York next spring. Condé Nast and Hearst? I'm so excited.
- I am interviewing with Seventeen soon to hopefully secure an internship with the fashion department next summer. I must say, Seventeen has a special place in my heart -- it was my first magazine subscription (I read Vogue at the public library)!
- I found out that Alexander Wang, quite the established star in fashion design, attended my school. The corporate offices told me that I could meet him when I'm in New York and perhaps intern with him on days that I'm not with Seventeen -- alumni relations are very useful!
- Gala pointed out the magnificence of the new Kate Spade ads; it almost makes me want to spend my Friday afternoons in the school library! Reading has never been so classy. I am in dire need of some new books to read; what books do you recommend for me?
- Speaking of reading, have you heard about Plum Sykes -- Vogue-ette, New York socialite, and author of Bergdorf Blondes? In spite of her chick lit fame, she is quite intelligent (Oxford educated in modern history) and quite an entertaining writer. Criticize her all you'd like -- she has brains, beauty, and brawn -- my kind of hero. Her New York Magazine article on the writer's strike was entertaining and provided an interesting perspective from a fashion writer. Smart, stylish, and successful.
- Does 25% off on everything at H&M sound appealing? Hurry up and get your coupon; the sale is only this weekend!
- I am sorely excited to live in New York City next summer with a close friend of mine.
I want to window shop at Henri Bendel, spend a few days at the Met museum, visit my 9th grade physics teacher in Brooklyn, bargain for cheap bags and trinkets on Canal Street, meet and work with some fashion industry professionals, watch a few good Broadway plays/musicals, watch old movies in Bryant Park, see the bright lights of Times Square, see a performance by the New York City Ballet, indulge in a cupcake at Magnolia Bakery, walk across the Brooklyn bridge, watch Independence Day fireworks next to the Hudson River, and read a good book while lying on the warm grass in Central Park.
