Think . . . think . . . think.

What am I pondering, you may ask? Well, I am of course asking myself what movie I can choose for the fifth installment of “Scarf Stars,” in which I highlight a cinematic scarf for the entertainment of the wonderful readers of Zazou1982!

For now, however, I will think about my movie selection in the back of my head as I inform you about my eighth day here as a Sterling Styles and Zazou copywriting intern.

Yes, it is hard to believe that I have already dedicated approximately 55 hours here as an intern – time flies when I am doing what I love: writing!

As you may have noticed in my previous post, I recently wrote the profile piece on Claudia Koch, one of the founders of the Zazou brand. If you have not already, please check out the article and read about the wonderfully quirky Claudia.

For the rest of the rest of the day, I will continue on numerous tasks that were assigned to me two weeks ago. I still have hundreds more blurbs to write for the products of Sterling Styles, Inc. I also have to complete more email blasts on Mail Chimp for upcoming shows for Zazou and Sterling Styles in cities such as Los Angeles, Dallas and New York City. This morning, I was able to complete blast designs for Trendz (Florida Fashion Focus), which will take place at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

These trade shows are extremely important for the company and the Sales Representatives the company employs, I learned first hand about sales rooms and the duties of sales reps in AMM 471, Wholesale Operations.

Thanks for reading, and I’ll update again on Thursday ūüôā

END OF THE DAY UPDATE: Remember how I have been assigned to write blurbs for all of the garments on the Sterling Styles‘ website? So far, I have made a small dent, and have completed approximately¬†356¬†descriptions! Just a few hundred more to go! Also, one of my newer tasks will be to assign names to some of the newer Sterling Styles merchandise. Stay tuned ūüėÄ

I have decided that every single week, I will focus on at least one famous scarf that has graced pop culture with its presence, because who says Audrey Hepburn’s little black dress or ¬†Molly Ringwald’s pink prom gown should hog all the spotlight?

LBD vs. Pretty in Pink

The very first cinematic scarf I will highlight in this blog is the infamous green scarf worn by Isla Fisher’s character Rebecca in 2009’s “Confessions of a Shopaholic.”

Confessions of a Shopoholic

In this lovable chick-flick, Rebecca, a journalist, finds herself out of a job and in desperate need of a new gig, preferably one at a fabulous fashion magazine in New York City.

Somehow accidentally, however, Becca lands a job at a financial magazine, and begins an extremely popular column under the¬†pseudonym¬†‘Girl in the Green Scarf.’ This title is inspired by one of Becca’s most recent impulse buys, a¬†luscious¬†(and expensive) forest green scarf.

The accordion pleats and simply sleek look may have made for a beautiful accessory, but it also made for a lot of trouble and adventure for one sweet shopaholic!

Other characters and actors in this film include:

Hugh Dancy as Luke

Krysten Ritter as Suze

Joan Cusack and John Goodman as Rebecca’s parents, Jane and Graham
