Chronicles of a Fashion Intern: Editor Encounters

Hello, My name is "Intern"


In life, there are two types of memorable interactions...the really great interactions and the...well...not so smooth interactions. I learned this very quickly the past couple of weeks when I had a close encounter with one of fashion's biggest names: Zanna Roberts Rossi, Marie Claire's Senior Fashion Editor, Stylist and E! News Contributor.

During this internship I constantly prepared myself with imaginary scenarios of how I would introduce myself to the Marie Claire editors. I'd bump into them in the kitchen. Use my charm to complement their outfit and tell them how much I admire their work. They would then invite me out for some coffee to chat about their incredible career. We would become so close that they would then take me under their wing and hire me as their fashion protégé. But that's not really how things work in the fashion world.

Brace yourselves, this is going to be an eventful story. So now I present to you... my very first encounter...

Chronicles of a Fashion Intern: Breakfast at Chanel

How I Almost Got Fired from Marie Claire on my First Day


This summer, I am lucky enough to intern for one of the biggest fashion magazines in the country Marie Claire. "Lucky" because everything just sort of happened out of nowhere. From January through April I was frantically sending out my resume to dozens of companies hoping someone would see potential in me and hire me for the summer. Out of all the companies I applied to (about 30) only three got back to me, and neither of those three offered me a position. By the end of April I had not heard back from anyone and needless to say, I was in panic mode.

One night while I was on Twitter, eating a carton of ice cream and wiping away the tears of my failed dreams, I stumbled upon an account called "ed2010" that posted job alerts for various magazines. As I scrolled through, I saw a tweet that said "Marie Claire is looking for a Summer Fashion Intern" and I thought to myself, You'll never know if you don't try. So I sent in a cover letter and resume the next day and a few hours later I got a call asking if I wanted to interview with them. A week later I received an email saying they'd love to have me on the team and before I knew it I was on a plane from Los Angeles to New York and my "Carrie Bradshaw Life" was about to begin.

The Look for Less: Saint Laurent

How to be a 70s Glam Rock Star on a Budget

From the metallic platform shoes, to the skinny scarves, it just screams bad-ass rockstar.

Checkout how I styled my favorite look below.
