1. "So you just shop all day, right?"

2. "Getting dressed for work must be stressful."

Or maybe it's fun. Because maybe I like clothes.

3. "Do people in your office even eat lunch?"


Believe it or not, all humans require food. Even fashion ones.

4. "What's your blog?"

5. "Will you go shopping with me?"

I just spent all day shopping, remember?

6. "Isn't 'serious fashion' an oxymoron?"


Isn't "your face" an oxymoron?

7. "Did you originally want to be a model?"


Did you originally want to ask better questions?

Come on. Like, NO ONE can sew.

9. "Can you get me a discount?" / Via

I can, but whether I will is another question entirely.

10. "Is it just like that movie where they work at that fashion magazine and that award-winning actress plays the boss lady who everyone hates at first but ends up loving?"

Congratulations! You have a basic knowledge of pop culture! But to answer your question: no.

11. "You're totally judging my outfit, aren't you?"


Maybe, but that's not because I work in fashion. ZING!

12. "Does everyone wear heels?"


Stop being so concerned with our footwear.

13. "Did you ever consider a real job?"


Actually, yeah. And now I have one.
