Fashion Jobs – Q&A With Former Style Nine to Five Social Media Intern and Gentle Fawn Digital Marketing Specialist Kelsey Dech

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in Canada

Kelsey Dech

Witty, charming, and a social media vixen are just a few ways you could describe Kelsey Dech, Gentle Fawn’s digital marketing specialist and former Style Nine to Five social media intern. We had the chance to chat with Kelsey and ask her a few questions about her new gig and also receive some advice for those looking to launch their career in the world of fashion marketing.

SNTF: Kelsey, you have a pretty awesome gig with Gentle Fawn, how did this job come about?

KD: I came across the job opening sort of by fluke. Yes, I was job hunting, and sending out resumes, but in the back of my mind I had begun thinking that maybe taking some time off for myself was the answer rather than jumping back into the job circuit. It just didn’t seem to be happening for me. But, as soon as I saw the job posting, I knew that I had to apply. There was no question. I actually remember getting the phone call for the initial interview and having this gut feeling that something big was about to happen.

SNTF: What is your average day at work like?

KD: Some days are alike and others are not, whatsoever. But I love that. I enjoy being challenged, learning something new. The other day I was pulling looks for a stylist and the next I was on my computer, doing up some ad mockups and adding new arrivals to our website. One thing that is always the same is how I start my day. First thing – I look over my weekly calendar. It’s an amazing little notepad where I jot down all my notes for the days ahead. It sets me up. Next, I’ll usually look over our social media pages along with reading some articles about fashion marketing and what’s going on in the industry. I don’t like to jump into my emails as soon as I hit my desk as I think it’s important to give your mind some food for thought before heading into your day.

SNTF: Prior to working for Gentle Fawn you were the social media intern for Style Nine to Five. What were you required to do in this role?

KD: As an intern, I was responsible for overseeing and maintaining all of Style Nine to Five’s social media accounts. From Twitter to LinkedIn and everything in between, I was the one behind the computer, scheduling posts for the following day. I was also required to gather content relevant to each job opening and or blog post plus consistently engage with Style Nine to Five followers.

SNTF: What skills and knowledge did you learn while interning for Style Nine to Five that you apply to your new role at Gentle Fawn?

KD: Social media is one of my many responsibilities at Gentle Fawn so knowing how different scheduling platforms (e.g. Hootsuite) work as well as the importance of knowing who your audience is and what they are looking for is something that has definitely helped me excel in my role at Gentle Fawn. Brand voice goes a long way.

SNTF:  What was your favourite part of working for Style Nine to Five?

KD: Easy – I got to work alongside an amazing female entrepreneur. Learning from Christie and seeing how she took her business from Vancouver to across the continent was eye-opening in the best way possible.

SNTF:  How has working for Style Nine to Five given you a professional edge in the fashion industry?

KD: Having a mentor like Christie and working for Style Nine to Five opened my eyes to the entrepreneurial side of fashion. From learning how the hiring process works to witnessing the PR involved in recruiting both companies and job hunters, I gained that understanding of how companies get started, which in my eyes, now makes me able to relate more to both companies and individuals.

SNTF: How do you think working for Style Nine to Five prepared you for your new career?

KD: It provided me with a glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes, ultimately preparing me for the multitude of differing tasks I now take on in my role at Gentle Fawn. The fashion industry is competitive, no doubt, but it’s also very vast in the areas of work one could do and I think that it can be easy to look past that part.

SNTF: For those looking to work in the fashion marketing industry, what advice would you give them?

KD: Be persistent and open to opportunity. You never know where that internship or part time job will take you. Any experience is better than none. It was always a dream of mine to work in fashion but I knew that it would be difficult and that I would likely face some hardships based on the competitiveness of the industry. However, I was confident that with my skill set and determination combined, I would one day get there. And here I am!

SNTF: The fashion industry is extremely competitive, what did you do to remain focused while looking for work?

KD: I like to write and one thing that worked for me was jotting down my successes thus far and outlining new goals. Whether it is in a notebook or on a post-it that I stuck to my mirror. It is so easy to get discouraged when you don’t get that call back or you don’t even get an interview for that matter. But knowing your worth and acknowledging such worth always put me back on track.

SNTF: What advice would current Kelsey give to past Kelsey on her first day of interning for Style Nine to Five based on what you know now?

KD: Probably to be more patient with herself and to not be afraid to ask questions. Anything worthwhile takes time and by not asking, you’re simply setting yourself up for more hardship. If you don’t know how to tackle something or phrase a “tweet” per se, it’s better to seek advice than to just let it rest on your shoulders.

To follow along with Kelsey’s journey through fashion marketing make sure to give her a follow on Instagram.

Fashion Jobs – Your 101 Guide to Vintage Shopping

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs in CanadaVintage shopping

Do you love that thrill of finding a truly unique vintage piece? Yup, us too. There is nothing like digging through treacherous piles of clothing, driving from yard sale to yard sale, and finally finding the holy grail you’ve been searching for. After years of wandering consignment boutiques and sketchy markets, we’ve become pros and some might even say true collectors. Herein we share our takeaways, with the learnings that only experience can bestow.  Here are our top tricks and tips for successful vintage shopping.

1.Discard the list

Vintage stores are riddled with garments and accessories that know no bounds of seasons. This means that you might walk out with the perfect pair of denim shorts in the mist of winter. So do yourself a favor and walk in with an open mind, you will thank yourself in the future.

2. Don’t expect perfection

This one should be a no brainer. Vintage stores are rife with slightly loved clothing that hold special memories of their previous owners, and as such will come with slight imperfections. Learn to love these small flaws and make sure you read tip number 4.

3. Find a tailor

Touching on tip number 3 comes the trials and travails of vintage clothing. Nothing, with the exception of that rare unicorn, will fit perfectly.  Therefore, it’s standard protocol to find a tailor to modify the garment with specific measurements to your body.

4. Unleash the barter beast

With vintage shopping comes the ancient art of bargaining. You should ask in a sweet and polite manner “Can you do a little better on this?”. In most cases sales associates are open to cutting the price down a couple of dollars if it results in a sale.

5. Be adventurous

Vintage shopping is amazing for finding unique and daring pieces that aren’t offered in mainstream department stores. Have fun styling with different colour palettes and patterns but don’t forget to balance it out with some basic pieces as well.

6. Patience is key

It goes without saying that the hunt for the perfect vintage piece takes dedication and more importantly, patience. You run the risk of searching through racks and racks of musty clothing and possibility leaving empty handed. But for routine vintage shoppers, finding that one rare piece every once in a while makes the chase all the worthwhile.

Fashion Jobs – 7 Items You Need for Winter

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs Canada

The days are officially going to become shorter, the weather is getting colder — winter is almost here.

Once the cold weather arrives, it will be time to put away our ankle boots and bomber jackets and time to refresh our wardrobes and add some much needed cold weather items.

These items need to be versatile enough to be worn to the office and good quality to last throughout the colder months.

So whether you live in a colder climate or you’re planning a trip to one, these are the seven winter wardrobe essentials that every woman needs in her closet.

1. J Crew Sweater

1. A Cozy, Versatile Sweater
A cable knit sweater works with absolutely everything and will more than earn its keep this winter. It can be dressed down with a pair of jeans and boots or dressed up at the office with a pleated, feminine skirt.

2. Tory Burch Boots

2. Chic, Knee-High Boots

Knee-high boots are meant for two reasons: giving your legs extra coverage on the colder days, as well as adding an extra dose of flair to an otherwise simple outfit. Opt for a pair of boots that can handle the winter elements and also make your outfit the talk of the town.

3. J Crew Coat

3. Double-Breasted Coat
Not only will a double-breasted jacket keep you warm and toasty this winter, but it will also add some serious flair to your go-to winter uniform of jeans and a sweater as well as add some serious style cred over a party dress.

Screen shot 2016-11-16 at 12.04.04 PMcn12170797

4. Plaid Blouse
A plaid blouse is perfect for layering underneath a sweater or worn tucked into a cute skirt. We love this adorable plaid print, as it will add a playful pop of colour to any outfit.5. J Crew Earmuffs

Faux Fur Earmuffs
There’s nothing better than throwing on a pair of chic (faux-fur) earmuffs on a chilly day. They’ll not only keep your ears nice and warm, but you can wear them to work without about messing up your hair.

6. Wool Gloves

Wool Gloves
Every gal on the go needs a pair of gloves that will not only keep her hands and wrists warm but also allow her to keep her fingers free so she can answer emails or add a selfie to Instagram on the fly.

Cozy Scarf
A warm scarf is an essential winter wardrobe staple. Opt for a scarf in either a stylish plaid or in a bold, statement colour, as they’ll pop against the harsh winter sky. Remember, fashion and function are key.

1. J Crew Cambridge Cable Turtleneck Sweater, $128, available at J Crew

Fashion Jobs – How to Wear Pastel Pink For Fall

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs Canadainspo 1

Usually as soon as Fall hits we begin to see the bitter-sweet wardrobe change in our closet go from bright shades to the darkest of colours.

The cold weather, fewer hours of sunlight, and bare trees ultimately leave us feeling dark and distressed. So it makes sense when the entire world of fashion turns to burgundy, brown, and black as the main shades for Fall clothing.

This Fall season us fashionistas think there’s a desperate change that must be made! Why not try wearing some softer shades of blue, yellow, and even pastel pink to really give your outfit the summer pop it needs in the dead of Fall.

By adding some darker coloured accents of clothing to your outfit you can really make any pastel pink ensemble Fall appropriate. This can be through a dark lace over-lay, or a bold pattern atop the solid pink. You can even try the opposite and accessorizing with pastel pink while keeping our entire outfit bold and gloomy.

Another great way to incorporate pastel pink into your Fall outfit successfully is to invest in a pink bomber or double-breasted jacket! This way you can be still enjoy looking Fall-ready, but when the bomber comes out you instantly are ready for summer-time fiestas!

Fashion Jobs: Retail CAN Be a Career

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs CanadaFashion-Clothes-Rack-4

RETAIL: the after-school job that turned into a rewarding career. The retail industry is not just about selling clothes, and it’s definitely not just an after-school job anymore. Retail is an industry that fosters many successful creative and leadership careers.

If you see yourself wanting a career in a retail environment, I have some tips and tricks for you to succeed in a world of cropped tops and skinny jeans.

1. Accept the retail schedule: If you want to get ahead in the retail world, your hours of commitment every week will not be consistent. Is that such a bad thing? For myself, over the years, it has allowed me to organize my time off, and make the most of it. Does that mean you should give up your life to sell t-shirts and hoodies? Nope, it just means that you should not expect your retail job to be a M-F: 9-5, which is not what you want anyway is it?

2. Be a leader: Even if you are not in a management position, it doesn’t mean you can’t be a leader. This is the number one quality when I hire anyone at any level. Do you have a sense of leadership? Will you try to find a solution before quickly asking? Will you use your resources to solve a problem, before bringing it to your supervisor?

3. Dress to impress: How will you ever convince anyone to give you a promotion if you wear that sweater with the seam coming undone, and a pair of Uggs to work? The answer is, you won’t. Make sure you put thought into your own outfitting. Just like financiers and lawyers wear suits to work, you must embrace the trends and dress to impress. This tells your peers, and your supervisors that you are serious about your role. You do not have to spend big bucks to achieve a professional but trendy look.

4. Ditch the break-room gossip: No seriously, do not say a single negative word about someone else, that is just not productive in the slightest. If there is a valid issue, take the time to address it with a supervisor. Never complain to peers, that gets you nowhere.

5. Have fun: working in retail means you get to socialize with people all day! Have fun with it, be genuine with your customers, get to know them, you never know what kind of amazing connection you’ll make!

Fashion Jobs – Winter Boots That Are Office Appropriate

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs CanadaIlse Jacobsen

Having to choose between staying warm and looking fashionable is one of the most frustrating winter wardrobe dilemmas.  Dressing for freezing winter mornings is hard enough as it is and then factor in that you still want to arrive at work looking somewhat stylish – now that sounds almost impossible.

This winter to make your life that much easier, you should invest in a pair of all-weather winter boots that are not only incredibly warm and capable of trekking through rain, slush, and snow but also stylish enough that you won’t receive any skeptical glances from your coworkers for your footwear choice.

Opt for a pair of boots with a warm, breathable liner, a reliable sole that’s not only made for stomping through the winter elements but will prevent you from slipping and falling on your behind after slipping on ice.

Fortunately for you, we’ve rounded up our favourite functional-yet-stylish winter boots that will not only get you through the unpredictable winter weather but also give you some serious style cred in the boardroom. In fact, these boots are so incredible that you might actually wake up excited to walk to work for once.

Fashion Jobs – Three Looks to Take You From the Office to Après Work Cocktails

Friday, October 28th, 2016

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs Canada

Regardless of how chilly it might be outside, working girls know the best way to unwind after a long day at the office is with an après work cocktail (or two, we won’t judge).

The only rule of thumb is that you never want to be that girl who feels uncomfortable because she’s too overdressed — we’re talking about full pantsuits — or the girl whose too casual rocking leggings and a t-shirt. This means you need to add some outfits to your wardrobe that are both office-appropriate and but also work for a night out.

The Little Black Dress

Every woman needs to own one fitted little black dress, as it will be a closet staple for years to come. Pair your black dress with a statement purse and a pair of neutral heels.

Chic Dress Pants

A pair of chic dress pants is perfect for the office because they can easily be dressed up and dressed down. Style with neutral accessories — like this stunning dusty rose Mansur Gavriel purse, a statement blouse and complete the look with a matching lipstick.

Fashion Jobs – Fall Bags

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

The Saddle Bag

Saddle bags of all shapes, colour, and size were spotted on a number of major runways for fall. If you’re looking for a bag that will transition from season to season, the saddle bag is it. Opt for a neutral colour like camel or black for optimal use.

The Guitar Strap

The most sought after fall bag has a bit more of an edge this year, and features a wide, embellished guitar strap and is making a statement for all the right reasons. Valentino, Prada, Fendi, and Alexander Wang are a few designers to jump on this edgy trend and have released their own rocker-inspired bags that are adorned with multi-coloured embroidery, studs, beaded designs, and much more.

Fashion Jobs – Get Ready for Sweater Weather With Our Fall Sweater Guide

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs Canada

Even though fall is synonymous with every girl’s favourite things — pumpkin spice lattes, apple orchards, and pumpkin patches — fall fashion is definitely the season’s number one perk.

While cozy layering essentials, chic wide-brimmed hats, and over-the-knee boots are definitely on our fall shopping lists we’re most excited about adding some new sweaters to our wardrobe this season.

Sweaters are the perfect cold weather necessity, as they’ll keep you warm and cozy without sacrificing style. This season, we highly recommend investing in a few different styles and luckily for you there are endless sweater options available, these just happen to be our favourites…

Feminine Details

Get cozied up for fall in a dreamy cream sweater featuring soft, feminine details.  We currently love this Vanessa Bruno fringe number; it would be perfect with a pair of dark jeans and a pair of camel over-the-knee boots.

Statement

When it’s cold and dreary out, there’s no better way to brighten your mood but with a statement sweater in an attention-getting colour. This season, treat yourself to a sweater in your favourite bold hue and you’ll be turning heads for all the right reasons. We’re falling for this stunning red Tory Burch sweater with gold details.

Screen shot 2016-10-23 at 9.49.49 PM

Shades of Tan

Tan is quite possibly the chicest, and most timeless colour there is and this fall we can’t wait to get our hands on cozy sweaters done up in varying shades of tan. From soft camel to warm honey and muted khaki, this is a shade we can’t get enough of.

Fashion Jobs – Falls Hottest Footwear: The Ballet Shoe Trend

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs Canada6444101098_2_15_1

Now that fall is officially underway, it’s time to put away our summer clothes and take advantage of the new trends and styles that have taken over our favourite stores. And this fall, it seems like the reoccurring trend is inspired by the classic dance world and fall collections consist of leotards, airy tutu-style skirts, soft layers, and ankle-wrap shoes.

We have to admit that of all of the new styles, we’re head over heels for this trend, especially the ankle-wrap shoes. This trend is classic, simple, and extremely feminine and we can’t wait to get our hands on a pair of these beauties.

But luckily for us, countless designers have released their own variation this season in pretty blush and nude shades and completed with a beautiful ribbon ankle wrap.

This fall, feminine ballet flats will quickly become your favourite alternative to pumps. The versatile hues will go perfectly with everything in your existing wardrobe, and a pair of these ballet flats will have you pirouetting to and from the office. We’ve rounded up five of our favourite styles that we can’t wait to purchase this season.
