Hello all! I’m sorry that I haven’t been A+ on blogging, I’ll be putting up yesterday’s post today. Anyway, it’s Wednesday and that means I get to feature another amazing lady! Today’s babe is Ashley of Fashion Unicorn! I first found Ashley because she started following me on instagram… it’s been true love ever since. Ashley is a FIT student who is literally living my dream. She’s studying fashion merchandising, currently interning at Victoria Secret and besides living in the coolest city, she was even in an All Time Low music video. Ashley has the style of a goth siren, weaving dark elements into her girly style while still maintaining the perfect high fashion vibe. Ashley is the kind of fashion powerhouse that you can feel; you don’t even have to know her to be able to tell that she’s gonna make an impact on the fashion industry. Besides having a fierce personal sense of style, Ashley also has the perfect haircut. I think she and I should just start a mob of fashion loving, half shaved hair babes.
I asked Ashley about blogging, working for Victoria’s Secret, her personal style and more!
I like to channel really grunge or goth elements and mix that with really girly things. I only wear things that I’m comfortable in, and I like to wear things that really show off my body. My mom told me, if you got it, flaunt it! I love any excuse to dress up, and I love taking themes or one bit of inspiration and going all out!
How I got into fashion
I’ve loved fashion since I was super little and dressed up my barbies. I even remember I shaved one of my Barbie’s heads (ironic). I would love to put together outfits and have photoshoots with my friends. Also, my friend Deena and I had our own little magazine called Think Pink when we were in 2nd grade! On top of all of that, I have an older sister who I totally looked up to style-wise. I would get her hand-me-downs before they fit me and I would love to copy her!
How I ended up at FIT
It’s actually very weird how I ended up at FIT. I applied to a bunch of schools, with a major in Fashion Design. I got accepted to Pratt Institute, Parsons, and Cornell (don’t ask). I actually got denied to FIT! I went to Pratt, which was my number one anyway. But, when I got there, I realized that fashion design- the sewing and all that- was not for me. So, I reapplied to FIT for Fashion Merchandising Management, got accepted, and here I am!
I’m interning at Victoria’s Secret in the web merchandising team. I’m working there full time and learning a lot. Basically, what I do is help out with the behind the scenes stuff of what goes on with the website. I get to go to big meetings and help out with a lot of important things. Everyone there is so nice. Not to mention, the building is sick! There are huge wall murals of the VS Angels everywhere. Talk about eye candy.
Favorite part of blogging
My favorite part of blogging is when people tell me that they actually read my blog and they enjoy it or that they use me as style inspiration! It’s so flattering and really makes me want to keep doing what I’m doing. Getting packages in the mail with fun things from designers or companies that are starting out is absolutely awesome too, of course!
