Samantha

sam

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m a rising Junior at Boston University in the College of Communication studying Public Relations and Journalism with a concentration in Spanish. I have spent the majority of my life growing up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, but I absolutely love to travel and experience different cultures. I spent January traveling throughout Brazil, I plan to study abroad next spring in London, and after that, my next stop is China! 

Why did you want to intern at La Fille Colette?

Interning at La Fille Colette gives me the perfect opportunity to use my public relations skills to advocate for something that I am passionate about. When I came across the company, I was so impressed with all of the steps La Fille Colette takes to counter fast fashion and to ensure that every garment is made ethically. Colette has given me the incredible opportunity to work directly with her as my supervisor, and I’m so excited to work with her and Angela.

What does your perfect day off look like?

My perfect day off would consist of me sleeping in, heading to the gym, then going off to explore Boston with my friends (with some shopping of course!) I’m so grateful to live in such an easily accessible and diverse city, with some of the best clothing stores and restaurants. I’m always looking to try out new places!

What is something that you are surprisingly really good at?

I have a really good memory. It’s actually pretty funny. I’ll remember some of the strangest details from 15 years ago, like what I was eating at certain meals and how specific conversations went, word for word. That’s probably where my keen eye for detail comes from.

What movie could you watch every week and not get sick of?

All of the Harry Potter movies for sure. They never get old!

What are you looking forward to most this summer? 

I’m most looking forward to catching up with my high school friends and my family. I’ve been friends with the same group of girls since I was 5 years old so it’s always nice to reconnect back at home.  I’m also excited to come home to the quiet suburbs after spending 8 months in the buzzing city. 

What's your favorite Instagram account to follow?

I started following @kaileemckenzie a few years ago and I still just love her posts. She’s a big advocate for ethical fashion; I learned all about the implications of fast fashion from her. Not to mention, I am obsessed with her style.

What's your favorite La Fille Colette dress?

I’m absolutely in love with the Lettie Dress, especially in black. It’s the perfect little black dress! The dress is perfect for all body types and the multiple straps that go around the back just complete the look.

 

Angela

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am 21 years old and I currently live in Brookline, MA. I am originally from Cambridge, MA and my family still lives there. I am currently pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Nursing at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Science.

Why did you want to intern at La Fille Colette?

I wanted to do something different than I ever done before, where I could learn a lot of new skills that I could apply to the health care field. I respect and value all that La Fille Colette stands for and that I think I can contribute to it.

What does your perfect day off look like?

A perfect day is one where I get a good amount of sleep, can go for a run or get some kind of workout in, and get to eat good food with good friends!

What is something that you are surprisingly really good at?

Surprisingly I am really good at knitting, which since I am usually a sporty girl most people don’t know that about me!

What movie could you watch every week and not get sick of?

I love the movie Remember the Titans! I could watch it over and over again!

What are you looking forward to most this summer? 

I am really excited to visit my friend in Denver, CO in July! I’m especially excited to go on beautiful hikes and horseback riding!

What's your favorite Instagram account to follow?

My favorite Instagram account to follow is @dogsofinstagram. They post really cute pictures of dogs that never fail to bring a smile to my face, because I love dogs!

What's your favorite La Fille Colette dress?

My favorite La Fille Colette dress would definitely be the Victorine Dress! It is great for the Spring/Summer, and it is really great for many different occasions!
