“It’s not where we stand but in what direction we are moving” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

So I have left the fashion and retail world for that of the NHS, but my dream of a career in fashion is far from over. In fact I believe that my new position of IT services co-ordinator has more transferable skills to a buying and merchandising role than working as a supervisor in Warehouse!

My new job is heavily excel based, something which I have noticed comes up time and time again on application forms. It also involves liaising with/chasing and gathering quotes from suppliers, which will look great on my CV when applying for said roles. As an added bonus, I actually genuinely enjoy the job as well, it’s a really satisfying job plus for the first time in my life I have a job with set hours -I am officially a Monday- Friday 9-5 gal !

I sometimes feel like after graduating there is a lack of direction, or in my case I know which direction I want to go in but the path is particularly hard to climb. However this is the time to explore, go around the path find a new way to your destination or indeed find a new path all together. For example I have always loved writing therefore I am currently looking into writing some  fashion articles or blogs for some local magazines. I am also attempting the Vogue Talent contest, at the end of the day if nothing comes of it then at least I will have enjoyed myself….

As for the immediate future I will be taking the path to The White Pepper, a lovely little boutique in East London. Which is perfect as I will be in the area next weekend. Check out their stuff: http://www.thewhitepepper.com I love the white angel dress they do, I especially like how they’ve styled it with black tights and shoes. Very simple but very effective.
