The Ideal Internship: Week 2


So I have just finished my second week in my internship at Browns and I am feeling exhausted! Working in retail full time is really hard work but it is so fulfilling because of the designers I am working with. This week was more of the same, helping clients, sorting out designers in the stock room and wrapping and taking care of purchases. I've had such a better understanding of how Browns is run now so I am able to really put everything into this and my knowledge of designers, retail and PR is getting so much better! I only have 2 weeks left in my internship now, it's going so fast! I'm just so happy that I can start making a career for myself now and start planning where this internship is going to take me, I'm so excited! Here are my outfits from throughout the week! Again, sorry for the bad quality!

Before i leave you guys, I have an exciting announcement to make! The beautiful Erial from the blog Erial View will be doing a guest post during the week! It's my first guest blogger and I'm so excited as her blog is fantastic! I'll also be guest blogging for her too so keep your eyes peeled! Head on over to check her out!

Leave any comments guys as you know I love to read them and give me a follow for more updates! Lots of love and have a great week!

The Ideal Internship: Week 1


So my next few posts are actually to do with my new internship at Browns Focus in London! I was so happy to get this place and didn't realize how lucky i was to be chosen! Everyone i work with is super talented and they know everything about fashion and every new designer, it's amazing. So what did i get up to in my first week..?
Well, i started off getting to know every designer and brand that we stock, and there is a lot! From Ashish to Versace, Balenciaga to McQueen, I've been helping on the shop floor with clients and assisting in the (amazing) stock room. It's a long day, but i have so much fun whilst i am there, getting to know people and helping clients, it makes you feel really positive and i am learning so much about designers i didn't even know before! The point of this internship is to learn how to work in high luxury retail and different it is to just working in a high street shop, it is a huge difference.
 My 'uniform' is basically whatever i want to wear which is amazing, you could be as fashion forward or as casual as you like! It's always good to make a bit of an effort though! So these are a few of my outfits from the past week at Browns Focus... Wonder what I'll be getting up to in my second week.. :)

and the amazing McQueen coat i got to try on that i fell in love with...!!

Sorry for the quality of the pictures, doing my best with what i have ha!

A Beautiful Secret


Today's post is a quick and personal one! I've recently been offered a retail internship at Browns in London which is fabulous and I'm so excited to share my journey with you all but, whilst i was in London for my interview, i had to pay another visit to the incredible Victoria's Secret store on Bond Street, how amazing is it? I can't get enough! I'm starting a new eating/fitness regime this week and what better 'thin-spiration' than the utterly gorgeous Candice Swanepoel?! Anyway, i took a few pictures of their beautiful underwear and runway outfits to share with you! Have a good week!!

Most Wanted: Kenzo Jumper

This is my first 'Most Wanted' post on The Studded Shorts and after long consideration, it has to go to Kenzo! The brand have been on my fashion radar for a while now with their last two collections but I have been completely drawn in to their fabulous range of jumpers! This one in particular caught my eye because of it's amazing bold colours and beautiful shape,
Kenzo (Available from Browns)

£150 can be a hefty price tag but we are in luck! High street brands such as Zara, Topshop and New Look have their own versions of this cult jumper! *Hooray!* Here are a couple i have found with a touch of Kenzo inspiration... :)

New Look


Well that is my first 'Most Wanted' post , will definitely be doing some more for you all! Have a lovely week!
