When I first walked into the Pale Violet office, I thought I had stepped into a dream. I prefer to surround myself with candy colored hues, and I knew that the Pale Violet girls shared my passion for pastels just by looking around the office. I came in for my first day not sure what to expect. I’ve done social media for so long, but only for myself and my own personal brand. What would it be like doing it for a clothing company? But my inner monologue was muted as soon as I walked through the door. I felt like I was walking into my new home, and I was welcomed with open arms by my new Pale Violet family.
My first week, I was behind the scenes (and in front of the camera) on several photoshoots, took so many Instagram photos, revamped our Twitter and Pinterest, and fully immersed myself in all of the Pale Violet social media channels. Even though I’ve loved everything so far, my favorite part of my first week was our Downtown LA field trip and fun photoshoot.
The PV Dream Team got dressed for success in our favorite Pale Violet pieces, packed up the car, and went on an adventure in our backyard. We found colorful walls, took tons of photos, and finished up our outing with an incredible lunch at Poppy and Rose. Being new to the DTLA area, I learned so much about my new city from this excursion. I got a feel for my surroundings, and got to do it all with my amazing group of new co-workers, who feel much more like my friends.
If you couldn’t tell, I’m so excited to be a part of the Pale Violet team and know I’m going to learn so much from this internship. Now for my second week! I’ll let you know how it goes.
