Designer Consignment, Isabel Borgatta’s Sculpture, and Why I Haven’t Posted in the Last Few Days
So, things have been super hectic here in Mai Mai Land (say, “My My”) of late - sorry for the lack of posts in the last few days! I currently work at Second Time Around, an awesome designer consignment shop in Nolita (just East of SoHo, in Manhattan), and I adore it, but it’s just not pulling its financial weight. And, thus, the search for a supplemental second job. I’ve been interviewing at Free People (just had my 2nd - kind of like a call-back, for all of you dancers or actors out there!), which was a follow-up to my returning to Anthropologie to see if they were hiring (I used to work at their lovely SoHo store on West Broadway a few years ago). Things have been somewhat drawn-out with the interviewing process, but I’ve been patient, because the retail sales position could incorporate some aspects of merchandising/visuals (yippee!).
Meanwhile, the wonderful and brilliantly talented sculptor, Isabel Borgatta, for whom I’ve been doing some freelance personal assistant work, is having an art opening at the Century (Club/Association) in early March and today I had to rush off to try and find Ms. Borgatta a suitable scarf for the occasion. So far, no luck.. I need something with blues or purples or rosey deep pinks, and it must be sheer - it is merely a decoration for the black velvets the sculptor will be wearing. So specific, and I enjoy the challenge - it is such fun searching for clothing that will make others shine! I am busy, but I’m definitely having fun : )
While all of this chaos ensues, I shall try to keep up-to-date with me wee blog, but if I run amok, do pester me through the ever-so-useful “Qs & As” section (and won’t you please include your email so I might respond?).
Happy almost-weekend to you all!
