It’s Friday night. Your phone rings. It’s Anna Wintour and she wants to take you to dinner. Quick, what do you wear?: Jeffrey Campbell Unicorn heels, dark wash skinnys, black silk tank, oversized vest with many glitzy-glam pins. Chic, fun, casual… if she doesn’t like it she can deal.
In 200 words or less, tell us how you can contribute a fresh perspective to Capitol Hill Style.
I’m a good Southern Girl with my own serious sense of style; I love color, I love statement pieces, and I have absolutely no fear. Fingerless leather gloves to work? I think so! Mr. T-esque chains to class? You only live once! And the only way you’ll catch me in Nike tempo shorts outside of the gym is dead. I live, love, and ooze bold on a student budget. I can breathe some Texan charm into Capitol Hill Style; fierce independent style that knows no limits.
In 140 characters, tell us why you want this internship.
My life is in my closet, I am most happy when I’ve put on something that I feel represents me. It wasn’t until recently that I embraced the idea that this happiness should maybe be more then a hobby, and that I can actually do something with my interest in fashion and style. This internship is my first step into a world that before now I was just a spectator, and it may be a small step and I will most likely still be spectator but this opportunity gives me the chance to get a taste of something I realized I want in my life.
