I just finished my first week at Saks Fifth Avenue and I could not be more thrilled about my internship, my summer in NYC, and everything both these things will bring. These past few days I've really gotten a feel for what things will be like at SFA. My first official day at work was Elie Tahari market. It was a crazy first day, but I wouldn't have it any other way. We spent about 9 hours in the showroom looking over the Resort/Pre-Spring11 collection, and Elie himself actually stopped in (which apparently doesn't happen often) and I got to meet him! He was very, very sweet. Yesterday and today were jam-packed; entering orders and doing all the other billion things working in a buying office requires. The second we can cross one thing off our to-do list we have to add two more. I literally work the ENTIRE time I'm there. But I am loving every second of it! I have learned so much already, and these are things that definitely cannot be taught in a classroom. Although I do hope I get reaquainted with working long days again, because when I get home from work I pretty much pass out. Well I stop at a little cafe first, then watch two (maybe three) episodes of Gossip Girl, then pass out and do it again!
BUT tomorrow is another weekend, which means more exploring!!!!
PS. My new camera is in the mail. So I will resume taking hundreds of pics soon :)
