For the past couple of months, I’ve been working with Bedford 11th to bring you some new content featuring their line of structured bags. I’m absolutely in love with the structured look of these bags because they’ve streamlined my minimal aesthetic that I’ve been going for this year. Most of the bags I own are kind of slouchy and, well, baggy. But the ones that were sent to me were SO sleek and minimal they’ve instantly won over my heart.

Life has a way of throwing you off momentum at times when you feel like you’re on a roll. Since the last time I did a major life update on the blog, I was finishing up my internship and was looking for full time employment following my exit from the company I was working at. While I knew that my job search journey would be a long journey, I never realized how many road blocks I’d hit and how much I’d begin to question myself.

Day 2 of LAFW was quite the experience. While Day 1 featured a lot of confusion due to my inexperience, I was fully able to enjoy Day 2 due to being on top of my game and knowing how to navigate the event. The day’s shows were even more diverse than the day before, starting with a children’s designer from Australia: Rose Cottage

Rose Cottage

The fabrics and styles made me think of mid century British children’s fashion thats updated to fit today’s aesthetic. Its not to say that it’s outdated, the cuts were a breath of fresh air to a very vintage and nostalgic style. It made me think of the timelessness of Winnie the Pooh. The fabrics ranged in thickness and volume and were super sweet and innocent without the stuffiness of some kid’s fashion. The collection, while looking quite beautiful, is also very durable. I can imagine kids being able to run around and playing in the outfits without the parents having to worry about them ruining the pieces. The tricky thing about kid’s fashion is also considering that it’s also for KIDS and they’re meant to be played in.

Whew! I thought I had it all together when I confirmed my tickets for LA Fashion Week but boy was I wrong! As a blogger, being able to attend fashion week is always a stressful and exciting time during any season partly because you’ve got a million things going on around in your head and partly because “HEY I’M AT FASHION WEEK!”.

Nelson-3500At the end of this week, my internship will officially conclude and I’ll be moving on to my next career opportunity.

Here are some things I learned about myself, the fashion industry, and some advice I got while on the job.
