Take a breather

Today marks the end of a truly grueling week of school and the start of one that's all about jobs, jobs, jobs!  Today I was pinning on pintrest (my new obsession) and came across a quote that reminded me that it is important to keep yourself in check because it is easy to forget the things that matter, "Sometimes you need to step outside, get some fresh air, and remind yourself of who you are and where you want to be."  We all have days where we lose focus, and today was definitely one of them for me.  I made a list of ten things that I needed to do today, of course I did about half of them...thankfully I didn't forgo anything that was too urgent.  A landmark in my life is also taking place on Thursday, my very first REAL interview!  I can't even wrap my mind around all of the initiatives I have had to take this semester and how it is really hitting me that I am the only one who can support myself.  SCARY thought.  One reassuring thing that has provided me comfort is knowing that I am capable of doing anything I put my mind to, and that the only thing holding me back from doing what I love is me.  These are the years that will test us to see how strong and motivated we are to achieve our highest dreams, mine being to work for Chanel or Vogue. Ms. Chanel herself explains the power of clothes, "Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only.  Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."
So the theme this week is going to be about inspiring people in the fashion industry.  These are the fabulous icons who immediately pop into my head when I need a reminder of why I am devoting my life to the world of couture:
"I have a dress-up chest at home. I love to create this fantasy kind of thing. "
Kate Moss

"I'd describe my style as simple, day to night,  Casual with style."
                                                                      Lauren Conrad
"Of course I've made mistakes but I don't really regret-I can't really regret-anything, because that's just a part of growing up."
Sienna Miller

"I think you're either born with a sense of style or you're not.  Either you care or you don't.  And we love fashion."
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

"He's lucky to be going out with me."
Kate Middleton
