Hello WordPress!

My name is Micheala Ard and I am the new copy writing intern for Sterling Styles in Walnut, Calif.

One of my first duties as an intern for this contemporary missy apparel company was to create a blog for ZAZOU (

Zazou is a European-inspired fashion brand that specializes in unique scarves, some of which are hand painted.

I love blogging, and despite the fact that I have created numerous blogs for myself or for classes at Cal Poly Pomona, is the first blog I have created for an actual company. Very exciting times!

On June 14, 2013, I graduated from CPP after majoring in Apparel Merchandising and Management and minoring in Journalism.

For three years, I was involved with The Poly Post, the student newspaper at CPP. During my senior year, I was the Lifestyle editor for the paper, and thus far it has been the greatest experience of my life. I learned more during this experience than I had ever dreamed I could, and I made unbelievably close friends I hope to stay in touch with for the rest of my life.

When  I was not editing for the paper all weekend or attending my classes during the week, I was helping out with the Apparel Merchandising and Management Association at CPP as the club’s vice presidents. This fabulous organization was involved in CPP throughout the entire school year, whether we were volunteering at the Pumpkin and Strawberry Festivals or cleaning up the campus during Ag Beautifications. This group of hard working young women strove to foster an environment in which fashion and substance met.

For fun, I love hitting with town with my best girlfriends, or seeing the latest movie with my dad at the local theatre.

My passion is fashion, but my life is writing. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy writing it! Stay classy WordPress!

Love, Micheala
