The beginning

I decided to chart my move from Ireland to San Francisco in the attempt to gain experience in the fashion industry.

I have always loved styling, and dressing up, the way I see it is who doesn’t, and I always swore to myself since a young age that I would work in a job that I liked.

I am still unsure of my direct path in retail (and in fact how direct it will be) but there are many areas that interest me and that I feel I could contribute too. One example is styling, as you will see from some of my posts. Another is buying, a suggestion made to me on a trip to San Francisco when I was sixteen, mass shopping I thought, this sounds like my kind of job. 

I moved to San Francisco in August 2009, why San Francisco, well I found LA and NY cliche but also and intimidating, and I have always had such a connection with San Francisco, its a familiar place to me.

One thing you will notice about me is that I am extremely interested in the behind the scenes- the idea of all the work that goes into that finished product, that, to me, makes it so intriguing.

This blog is my story, a move from one culture and norms, into a totally different way of thinking and industry, and believe me there are many differences between Ireland and USA, and between being a student and a Stylist.

*** One thing I love Ireland for- Giving me a accent that everyone comments on.
       One thing I love the US for- the ability to do anything, say anything and be anyone. ***
