Classic City Girl look at Girls Talk London
We are Islay and Carissa, two bloggers and best friends from Chichester. We attended a Girls Talk London seminar in March 2014 organised by Vanessa with panelists Ashley-Gianna Hallett, Ernestina Hall, Nicky McGroarty and Geisla-Osei Akoto. The event was focused on empowering and inspiring girls aged 14 -25 and helping them take the right steps to be successful in their chosen careers. The panellists varied from backgrounds in fashion, communications, supply chain and finance. This diverse range of opinions and experiences made the discussion interesting and helpful for girls with varied dreams and aspirations.
As students ourselves, we are currently working towards stepping on the career ladder. Although both working in retail at the moment, Islay aspires to work within marketing and Carissa aims to be a solicitor. We found the advice surrounding the steps to get work experience and first jobs invaluable.
Of course, as fashion bloggers we couldn’t help but show you our outfits! One thing you have to remember with work wear is to coordinate colours and play up shapes and textures to create a smart but stylish look.
