Diary of a fashion intern: Slutty Fish

Kendall Jenner cat ears halloween
Our boss said that on Friday (before Halloween) we would go for drinks after work in costume AKA get ready in the office when we have finished up for the day, I guess I should’ve read the email properly before I should up to work dressed like a ‘slutty fish’. To make matters worse I didn’t have a change of clothes with me – oh and I had to take the minutes at a super serious meeting with the heads of department. So you could imagine the look on my boss’s face as she walks in and clocks me dressed as a ‘sea creature’ – or in my sister’s words ‘a slutty fish’. My boss stops mid strut in her patent Louboutins, fixes me a look that says ‘what the hell is that thing doing in my office’ and walks into the printing room.  As everyone else arrives in to the room, I suddenly find myself as the focal point of the office. While everyone gawks at me I get this sinking feeling that I might just be the one responsible for this big important meeting going tits up. Before I know it, my name is called and I sheepishly move over to the meeting room – everyone in the room goes silent as I take my seat. Despite some intense stares and smirks the meeting goes off without a hitch, however, as the meeting comes to a close my boss announces to the room ‘I want to thank our intern who is sporting some samples from the upcoming BalmainXH&M collaboration’ – everyone, including myself, awkwardly laughs.  When it comes time for everyone to get ready I began to realise I’m in an office that is slowly filling up with cats, yes everyone decided to put in subpar effort with their costumes and just threw on some cat ears with their work outfits. It was quite the scene, a room full of women dressed as cats and me sat on a swivel chair decorated as a provocative piranha. The boss swans in and suddenly I’m no longer the centre of attention, all eyes are fixated on the boss, who is dressed as Lady Gaga in her iconic meat dress. As we file onto the party bus my boss pops up next to me and simply says ‘I love the costume’. And with that said, all was right with the world once again.    Follow our Intern on Snapchat by searching for the username: frockadvisor
