I have high hopes for today, based on the fact that I am donning my favorite print of all time: leopard!

Yesterday, I bought FOUR Betsey Johnson bracelets, and could not wait to get ready for my internship at Sterling Styles and Zazou today so I could wear two of my recent purchases.

Anyway, after getting dressed and doing my hair and makeup, and making the hour-long drive to Walnut, I have already accomplished a fair amount here at work 😀

To begin the day, I placed the brown bag lunch that my mother packed for me. She wrote my name on the bag and adorned it with ladybug stickers! It’s like I have time-traveled back to elementary school! Go Bobcats 😛

I then got straight to work on both the Sterling Styles and Zazou email blasts made on Mail Chimp. The emails will be sent to all the buyer contacts in the company’s roster, informing the buyers about the Atlanta Gift Show that will take place from July 11-16.

Now that the email campaign has been completed, other tasks on my to-do-list for the day include: working on the Zazou website at, transcribing my interview with one of the creators of Zazou, Claudia Koch, copying inventory information onto an Excel spreadsheet and adding more fabulous posts to this here Zazou Blog!

When designing the email blasts, I again went back to my studies from AMM 270, Visual Merchandising and Store Design. Incorporating colors that work well together was also taught during that course, when we studied the color wheel, learning about primary, secondary and tertiary colors. Design was also studied in AMM 210 and AMM 210A, Design Analysis. Working on a retail and wholesaling website was also aided by my studies from AMM 454A, AMM 472A and AMM 497A, Retail Simulations I-III. These classes gave me the first hand knowledge about running the website for the online store, writing the ApparelScape newsletter and collaborating with a group of people.

All in a day’s work as a Sterling Styles and Zazou Intern! ❤
