Dear Pennies & Pens,

When I originally created de la Pen, it was to be  a fashion blog. One of my first posts talks about my desire to break into the industry. However, over the years I’ve realized that while I love fashion, I prefer to create lifestyle content. In essence, I expanded the site to create de la Pen…All Pen Everything, an international and multicultural online lifestyle magazine.

I still focus on fashion so I cover various fashion shows and events as well as featuring designers, models, etc. But one thing I’ve never gotten to talk about is how to build a career in the industry. I think it’s important to constantly read up on your chosen field or industry so that you never stop learning and improving.

That said today’s post: LOUDRead: The Teen Vogue Handbook: An Insider’s Guide to Careers in Fashion features my review of the book. First off, I must say that I truly enjoyed this book! I’ve been the industry for a few years now and I still found the advice and experiences shared in the book to be extremely valuable. It served as a refresher and motivator for me and I imagine it would serve as a guidebook to those seeking to break into the industry.

I liked the book because it was a simple and easy read. The profiles and interviews told me stories about how the people I admire became who they are by revealing their trials and tribulations. It was inspirational!

I also liked how the book talked about how to do photo shoots and build an online brand. It is truly a well rounded book that gives you insight on various aspects of the industry and the people who work in it.

I highly recommend this book! Check it out here: Amazon.com/The Teen Vogue Handbook Insiders
