i loved your description tott...i used to do a LOT of shoots in the desert in arizona...imagine that...the heat and dust etc...and then they tell you ''keep an eye out for rattlesnakes and gila monsters!!!"....aaahhhhh......can you imagine...hahahaha...........

the studio makes those things a lot easier...but even then...how do you get the clothes over to the studio...messenger!!!.... ...we msgr a lot of stuff but if you're on a small budget...it's really difficult...it can get pretty expensive...and cab fares just went up... ...

but you gotta do what you gotta do and find a way to make it work...is all...

doing jobs that aren't as fun or creative...
those usually pay better...

basically you have to try and balance the fun jobs with the money jobs...cause they are rarely the same thing...

when you get one that is fun and lucrative...that's when you're living the dream...

Currently I work at Herbergers, a department store owned by Saks. When I move to NYC, I'm going to see if their are any openings open at Saks and do a transfer between stores. How hard to you think it would be to move from a sales associate at Saks, to a personal shopper at Saks? I would really really like to try. This job sounds amazing, even with all of the hard work.

I honestly LOOK for reasons and special events to create outfits for myself and my sister and friends. I love creating different images and looks.

Not making a ton of money would totally be okay. If I could go to work everyday, loving what I'm doing, I'd do it for free if I could still survive day to day.

you have to go and talk to human resources....the holidays are coming and saks going to be looking for more help...i assume someone that is already trained and working within the company would be an asset...

if they are legally separate companies...you may have to apply to saks separately...but if you can get a good reference from the store you're in now...that should make things easier...

don't know about switching from the floor to personal shopping...it differs from company to company... you should ask that when you talk to human resources or at your interview with saks...

good luck... ...i'm sure you can do it...

I'm new. Hello.

Fred Segal in Santa Monica has workshops for stylists. This might be helpful if you're interested in that aspect of the business.
