So, as many of you know, I have been job searching for the past few months. Well, to be quite frank, I am sick of it. There are no interesting jobs out there and the ones that are interesting require 5 years minimum experience. I am still considering grad school ... still have GRE and GMAT books, but I finally told myself to do what I am passionate about. I am also still waiting to hear back from some marketing jobs that I interviewed for ... but-
Ladies, PIPM will be working at one of THE most stylish and chic boutiques in Memphis. I will actually be rotating between three (they are all owned by the same person). They carry Trina Turk, Milly, Nanette Lepore, Ella Moss, Michael Stars, Marc Jacobs, Loeffler Randall, Nicole Miller, Rebecca Taylor, Yoana Baraschi, Diane Von Furstenburg, etc. Not to mention denim- True Religion, Sevens, Citizens, Paige Denim, Hudson, Marc Jacobs, Joe's, etc.
The owner and one of the managers told me it is very easy to advance and I am hoping to become an assistant buyer. This would mean 5 trips a year to NYC :):):) I am not saying this will happen, but I hope that I will be able to advance. I am thinking if I work in this area for a couple of years I will have enough experience to apply for Milly, Tibi, or Lilly as a buyer or something even more advanced. I didn't graduate college with honors for nothing, right? haha ...
Needless to say, we all know that clothes are my true passion in life and I am so excited to give this arena a try. Everyone my whole life has told me to work in fashion and for some reason, being a lawyer always sounded more appealing to me. Now I am coming to terms with my true love for designers ... I think I may be one of the only people who will sit and stalk designer websites for HOURS examining every detail of a new line.
Anywho, wish me luck on this new venture. I am so excited I can't stand it!
