So, the best way to get experience without having experience is an internship. I know you were at Howard University, then at FIT on an internship program working under one of the stylists at Honey magazine, tell me more about that.Yes, I started at Howard University and it was an amazing, amazing thing to do!That evening, I was able to learn more about the person behind this great style guide as well as garner some tips that every budget-conscious, fashionista should know.Daisy Lewellyn: Oh, gosh, there are some many things I want readers to learn!It’s really making them over and pulling out their inner celebrity that they didn’t know existed.We think about celebrities and we always think about the OSCARS, but the celebrities go to movies premieres, they go to the grocery store, they are people just like us.The women that came in there were so nice, but they didn’t pay attention to the way that they looked.They just get dressed and put on whatever they see.
I get that feeling too, but it is a hard thing to prove.
So, I really want women to pull out their inner celebrity.
I recently did makeovers with Rachel Ray from the Rachel Ray Show and we literally went to a rest stop which is not that glamorous and did makeovers.
One woman had lost 20 pounds and she was still wearing her husband’s shirt which was big and oversized.
So that was really memorable because those are the women that represent everybody.
