We always thought there was something really suspicious and Penthouse 'Letters'-y about the Teen Vogue "intern blog", and the other day, upon reading the virgin post of new Intern Juli — pictured somewhat ridiculously at left — we finally figured out why! For your consideration, examples from three separate interns' recent dispatches:
- Juli:"I was so stressed when deciding what to wear to my interview. I ran around all day in a panic."
- Sara:"I felt really stressed out about what to wear to my interview. This culminated in some impulsive, last minute shopping at the Barney's Co-op."
- Diana:"On the day of my interview, I slipped into my favorite little black dress, Sigerson Morrison peep-toe wedges, and classic Burberry trench coat."
- In Juli's entry, on the day of her interview she" finally decided on a yellow Marc Jacobs dress" (this slip dress, originally, $995 but now on sale for $597 perhaps?) before making "a split second decision to ditch the yellow dress" and wear "what I wore to my interview at Men's Vogue, (where I intern when I'm not at Teen Vogue)" which is to say an "all black skirt/shirt combo from Intermix". (Sort of like this this $475 Alice Ritter bib dress...)
- Sara, meanwhile, cops to wearing a "Rebecca Taylor velvet dress" (which was probably a little pricier than this $449 crocheted bell-sleave dress, but you get the idea) to her interview, although "nobody actually saw it as I felt too cold to take off the large sweater I was wearing over it!". Sara adds (in some "top-secret advice" for fellow interns): "sometimes, I wear Uggs on the way to work, and then change into ballet flats when I get to the office." (Prob these Jean-Michel Cazabat Napa leather ballet skimmers for $395 — from Sara's beloved Barney's Co-Op, naturally!
- Meanwhile, Diana pairs a nameless "favorite little black dress" with Sigerson Morrison peep-toe wedges (like this $460 pair?) and a "classic Burberry trench coat (just in case)" (something like this $795 number?)
- And Shavanna talks about two outfits, a black and blue French Connection trapeze dress (no longer in stores, but you can snag this Izzy dress for $188!) and a first-day outfit of a vintage dress (Vintage Pucci, perhaps? $795) and vintage Ferragamo pumps (like the ones we found for $76.99).
