I started at Retrospect back in August of 2008. I remember squealing into the phone when Jason offered me the position, "Oh my gosh! I can't wait to tell my parents!" Dropping off my resume was my last ditch effort to avoid accepting a job in the suburbs as a "Junior Camp Nature Specialist", which is apparently a clever euphism for a khaki cargo short, Croc-wearing camp counselor who picks up after the animals in a makeshift "farm area" of the park. That alone made me feel as though I struck gold.
It was easy to predict that my closet would have a constant overflow of beautiful dresses, from the basic staple silhouettes to the fabulously unneccesary pieces I just had to have. I just never thought that a job would give me the opportunity to meet so many wonderful individuals. I feel incredibly blessed to have spent the past four years here. I know that not everyone has the pleasure of doing what they love, or saying that the highlight of their college graduation party was the moment their boss showed up. I'm so lucky, and I just want to use this post to say thank you to all of my lovely co-workers and customers who have made my time here special.
