...there was a freelance fashion stylist who had a goal, a focus and then she did something really silly she followed that goal and it went askew. The truth is Mrs MDS went off to do a masters at the London College of Fashion to further her fabulous fashion credentials. She had grand ideas of creating style extravagances and going back to work in a media company or a magazine. Quite a few companies and magazine editors were interested and gaily Mrs MDS skipped off to college. She missed her induction week, the library tours et al as petit garcon had the chicken pox.
Eighteen months later after completing her masters, working part time as stylist to fund her academic indulgence and still being a mother and running a home (Mr MDS was very helpful btw) - her views, ambitions and goals changed. Never one to be anything other than practical (an antidote to her adventurous, playful wild child side) Mrs MDS carried on working part time to pay off her career development loan which helped to fund her masters. And she began to wonder and think about what she really wanted to do. She suddenly didn't give a fig for fashion or styling. She still loves fashion but from a distance, not in the all absorbing way of old.
In short it seems she has a taken a whopping big chill pill and is happily bumbling along writing her film script, doing the odd project (fashion writing, retail consultancy) and contemplating what next.
The moral of the story is never be afraid to change tack....hence the further adventures of Make Do Style.
