Straight afterwards I headed to the store where I'm hoping to work...full of beautiful vintage and designer dresses, perfumes, frilly knickers and jewellary (aka heaven). I spotted a blue 1950s shift dress that I'm desperate to have for my boyfriend's Summer Ball at uni on June 20th, ahh!
She said she'd had quite a few applicants but we got chatting about everything I've been doing fashion-wise (including a fashion show with some of her collection in it!) and by the end she simply said 'well I'll look at your CV, give you a call, and set up a trial day with you'... OH YES! Looks like I've overtaken those other applicants...fingers crossed! It's from September on Sundays which is perfect as I can see the boyf at uni Friday-Sat/Sunday and I'm mega busy all summer. But then she's given me some time in May Week to do too and maybe a little bit in summer when I'm free. So very excited, I shall keep you updated... there's also some great events the shop puts on, including 'champagne shopping night' on Wednesdays: shop whilst having champagne, what more could you ask for?
Caro and myself have also finally got the themes for the fashion show we're designing and modelling for! So we've headed out to get some clothes with our coupons. We buy clothes from charity shops, rework them at home and at design days with a designer, and then after the show they'll hopefully be sold again! The money goes to the charities and we show people that charity shop stuff cannn be fashionable. There's also going to be a raffle: just found out a dress from a collection at LFW will be for auction, a top fashion label item and designer accessories, live bands, refreshments and prizes for the best outfits, including a week's work experience at a fashion company! It's at The Junction on July 7th and tickets are just £5! Pick them up from the Oxfams and British Heart Foundations stores round town or contact me! xxx
