Thank you luckyme. Unless I had a plan to "move up" the magazine corporate ladder and join the "politics", it was ultimately an exhausting and dead end job, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless they feel that as some kind of higher calling and they love air-kissing the same crowd for years.
Scott, I wasn't trying to be boring, I just ended up this way. The job was literally non-stop "shopping", for the eds, and you really don't want to buy anything after that except for staples, you need clothes you can move all day in, and you care about not taking a particular "position" fashionwise. I'd feel very wrong to pick a favourite, eg. Balmain, and almost "promote" him/her. I guess a lot of the not-so-photographed-more-boring stylists are the same way - the less known about what they personally wear, the better. It's to keep a kind of blank canvas so it doesn't limit what you will work with, which can then comfortably veer from severe monastic to neon urban in your shoots, without feeling any incoherence.
