So, I have had a few questions regarding the last entry and my internship.

1. "What is this fabulous company?"
I'm not sure how much information to divulge... but to quote Phoebe from Friends: "It's like the mothership is calling you home." Or to put it in other words:
Rachel:Ralph Lauren::Liza: ___________

2. "How could a bag possibly get you an internship? It was probably something else."
Well, here are a few anecdotes...
Before the interview, we were discussing where to meet and how we would recognize each other:

Very Important Account Executive : "I am wearing a navy blazer. What do you look like so that I can recognize you?"
Me : "I am wearing a cream sweater, and my bag is the size of life. You can't miss me."
VIAE : *Laughs* "Great, I'll see you soon."
Fastforward to us sitting down at a table...
VIAE : "You can sit right here, and this is a chair for your bag."

The man gave me a separate chair for the bag! Five minutes later, he told me I got the position.

And this, children, is an important lesson on how accessories can lead to more fruitful lives.

Dying with jealousy. You'll be taking over from La Wintour in no time.

That bag really is beautiful.

I've met you. You didn't get the job because of the bag. You got it because you're hot.

No amount of hotness can surpass the power of Italian leather.
