ttF Fashion Diary: Boys Club

ttF Fashion Staples Series Diary: Boys Club
I’ve always been a girlie-girl. I love feminine ruffles, tulle and lace. But when American Apparel sent me these trousers, I immediately saw them paired with a vest. Sometimes, it’s fun to step outside your comfort zone. Now I said step, not leap. I had the pants cropped so I could wear heels (oxford flats just aren’t flattering when you’re 5’3 in pleated pants). And I kept my tank fitted to show I still had some curves.

My coworker, Brett, said it was his favorite look I’ve ever worn! I wouldn’t necessarily go that far but sometimes it’s fun to play with the boys.

      Thanks! I went to Tuft University, outside Boston. But I had internships in Boston, London and Los Angeles. Internships are key. They not only help with experience but are great for building contacts. Always make sure you keep in touch with as many people as possible after you leave an internship, too. You never know where they might end up in five years.

    Thanks for the tips! What did you major in at Tufts? Did they have fashion majors?
    Are there internships at your company?
