111 New Bond Street

4 years ago

I`ve been very blessed to have been invited to two interviews so far, down in London with some fashion companies. I`m hoping to get my foot in the door in a head office position down in London as jobs in the North are so sparse, I`m having to look far and wide for anything remotely worth fighting for and have so far, found myself in several situations in which the prospective employer`s own personal agendas have been insincere.

On my second trip down to London, I picked up a couple things. One purchase very obviously, was from Victoria`s Secret whom welcomed their New Bond Street store as their UK flagship store this year. In November, it was reported that Victoria`s Secret was planning to open two new UK stores in 2013, one in Leeds and one in Manchester which I`m beyond excited about. No doubt the Manchester store will be less extravagant than the glass-knobbed drawers, mirrored spiral staircases and black crystal hallways of the London flagship store, but it will still have that certain `Je Ne Sais Quoi` that Victoria`s Secret exudes. I`m a strong believer in wearing good underwear; I think it`s important to indulge in well-fitted brassieres and seductively-detailed knickers, regardless of what you throw on on top. Lingerie can do positive things for your confidence and self-esteem, and I believe that the staple under-garment can be an empowering tool.

I also picked up an embellished sleeveless t-shirt from Camden Market. I fell in love with it as soon as my eyes fell upon it. A lot of the stalls in Camden Market are duplicates, selling wholesale stock from Korea but the stall I purchased this from was quite unique in that although the stall sold printed t-shirts bought in bulk, they would also embellish the odd design to create one-off pieces. The stall only had two embellished t-shirts; one was a black KISS t-shirt which was also beautifully stitched and the other was this white Charlie Chaplin t-shirt. The t-shirt is oversized, sleeveless and made from thick cotton. The design is printed and embellished with sequins and pearls. I`ve never seen anything quite like it and I`ve completely fallen in love with it.

I`m very happy with my two purchases and excited at the possibility of moving down to London (although I`d be lying if I said I wasn`t a little bit terrified). Life has been hectic lately what with Christmas coming up and completing assignments for an on-line course I`m doing. As some may know, I was studying An Introduction to Computer Science at MIT but it turned out to be a lot harder than first anticipated and a lot of established Computer Scientists expressed how naming it `An Introduction to...` was misleading as those with a background in Computer Science already, had also been finding it tricky. I don`t know what possessed me to think I could complete a course with a prestigious University currently holding the #1 position as the best University in the world. There must have been something in my coffee!
