Busy Bee

Works been crazy and on top of that, my baby sister is visiting Paris! She, my other sister K (who lives and works in Paris as an au pair) and I have been taking over the city! Trips have been made to the Marais, the Champs de Mars, Bastille, and of course les grands magasins to take advantage of les soldes....

I think I have found my calling...

So it's really busy at work right now as we prepare for the NYC/Milan/Paris showrooms where we present next years collections to clients. Last friday I spent the entire night at work helping my team pack everything to send to New York. Thursday and Friday the collections were photographed on models and when the shoot was finally over Friday evening we were able to begin. Walking into the room was like walking into my dream closet: beautiful jewelry, handbags, dresses, tops and shoes galore! Alber (the artistic director) was there checking out the photos and afterwards we all sang happy birthday to him and ate delicious cakes from Ladurée. Weird.

And then the real work began...I spent about 9 hours wrapping, boxing, sealing and sending. I didn't mind though... working with beautiful things makes it all the more easier (and much more fun)!

While interning isn't the best way to get your rent paid at the end of the month, it does have other benefits...some people would just rather have beautiful shoes than eat!

I know I had a week off from school but I started a new job (internship) last Monday and didn't want to jinx anything until I got through my first week. I absolutely love the position and the people that work there and the beautiful things we sell and even more- where the offices are located: above the company's boutiques on rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré. I feel so lucky to have been given this opportunity and hope it will lead to bigger and better things once J and I decide to move back to the USA next year. I'm gonna try to take some pictures this week at the office + my purchases at the company's private sale taking place this week. excited!!!
