Intern Files: Boysenberry Coat

Posted on November 05 2014

Hey there, gorgeous.

If you haven't gotten the chance to get to know me yet, I am the best (and only) HG Intern, Ashby.

It's time to get a real look inside the life of an intern. I took the gorgeous, snuggly Isabeli Coat in Boysenberry by Jessica Simpson with me from class to photo shoot.



With a full day of class at NYU, there is no escaping a walk through Washington Square Park. Between classes, I grabbed lunch with a few friends and Lititia willingly snapped a few photos of me while walking through the park.



I wore the Isabeli Coat in Boysenberry over a shirt dress with tights, booties, and my go-to work bag.



I am all about unexpected neutrals this fall. Camel seems to be the big color of the season, as represented by my tote and booties (which totally match with everything I own!)



This coat is an unexpected neutral too- in that burgundy/maroon/oxblood/boysenberry/whateveritscalled shade. The color of this jacket has so much more life to it than a standard black coat, but it still matches my wardrobe.



What I love about this coat:

  • -No stubborn zipper, no annoying snaps! Just the two toggles at the top. Easy on, easy off.
  • -It has a generous fit. So important in a coat- gotta be able to layer over sweaters!
  • -The amazing color and texture.
  • -Super comfy.
  • -Big, accessible pockets.
  • -It has a hood! And it doesn't look sloppy!!!



The next day I headed out to our photo shoot. Days we shoot are fun, exciting, overwhelming, exhausting, and long. We blast music, eat catering, and are on our feet nonstop.

My job is to keep everyone in the loop via social media, steam clothes, help out the stylist, get coffee, unpack clothes, pack up clothes, and help out however I possibly can. 




Standard intern-gets-coffee photo!



My photo shoot look is always easy-to-take-off shoes (in case I need to step on set, I don't want to leave a big footprint on the white ground), comfy pants to move around in, and an easy top.


Here's some Instagrams I posted during our shoot:

When I get my hands on the HG account, I like to post pictures of whatever we are up to and whatever gorgeous curvy inspiration I can draw up. We love to retweet or regram customers who take a picture of themselves in their products and tag it #HGStyle. 



This dress has so much #HGStyle! We had this same dress by Adrianna Papell on our site in black and it sold out almost instantly. Make sure to pounce when you see it launched!



All the jewels! 


Love this leather & fur look by stylist Mia Tucker Williams! 



Behind those seemingly perfect photos on fashion websites, there is a lot of work. And a couple giggles.






The long day came to an end, and I rode the train home with our perfectly made-up model, Melissa.

Models: they're people too. They ride the subway. 


HG has a ton of outerwear right now- lots of amazing, beautiful options. The Jessica Simpson collection is stellar.

Scroll through it, see what you like. Another one of my favorites is the Elsa Coat by Jessica Simpson



I love winter whites. And with my blonde hair, I think it would look really pretty. But I also have a tendency to spill everything I hold. So maybe I will hold off on owning a white jacket. Or maybe I will just stock up on bleach?


Until next time, gorgeous!
