But today, I'm thrilled to announce that my dreams have become a reality. I've been offered a full-time sales position at Trends, a designer consignment shop in my neighborhood. I'm beyond excited to become a member of the Trends team, and to earn my living doing something I genuinely love and feel passionate about. I'll be learning the consignment business, as well as assisting with the shop's social media efforts. I'm starting this coming Monday, and I can hardly wait!
This week, I'll be super-busy starting my new consignment career. It's going to be a big change and an even bigger challenge for me, though I think the toughest part will be resisting the temptation to spend my entire paycheck on new clothes! However, I promise to keep blogging every week, and adding new items to my shop. For me, Avant Girl has become more than just a shop-blog, it's part of who I am, and it's helped me get where I am today.
Meanwhile, if you're in the Chicago area, I encourage you to come visit me at Trends, 810 North Boulevard, in Oak Park (on the near-west border of Chicago). The shop offers amazing deals on designer and upscale brands like J. Crew, 7 For All Mankind, Marc Jacobs, and much more. And whatever you do, and wherever you are, have a wonderful weekend!
