In 1988/89 I used to work in an upmarket department store.

I started working there in 1987 and stopped in 1991.

When I first started there I worked for a french costmetic company. Yes I was one of those immaculately groomed highly made up women that polish the counter all day while waiting for customers.

Anyway, I only worked there casually as in my spare time I did artwork and liked to have the time to do that sort of thing because I couldn\’t find a job that was creative.

I had hoped that I would end up in the visual merchandising department doing displays but that was run by men at the time that seemed to have something against women doing that job so wouldn\’t employ any. Now they wouldn\’t be able to get away with that but back then they could.

So I spent a short time working for the cosmetic company until they replaced me with another girl, I didn\’t get along with the girl who was my superior so I guess that is why that happened.

However the store kept me employed as a floating staff member, that meant I worked where ever they decided to put me if someone else was sick or on holiday.

So I really pretty much worked all over the store including mens shoes which was so much fun! I used to get all the lines…\”oh I really love having a pretty girl at my feet\” and such.

Somehow I ended up in the office of the promotions department answering the phone and other silly nonsense.

Then I was recruited to be a dresser for the catwalk models when we had big instore parades and cocktail parties. Yes you heard me right I used to dress catwalk models during fashion parades.

I was very good at this job for some reason, so they used to send me out to other places to do it as well, and I also ended up dressing male models occassionally.

So I was sent out to a fashion awards night and I was supposed to be dressing a particular male model that was well known in our office and particularly liked by the two young secretaries there.

But I ended up being shuffled over to dress one of the females as her dresser has not turned up and the males had less changes so could really dress themselves in an emergency.

Well, I was sitting on the floor with the other dressers when the male model I was supposed to be dressing comes up to me and says \” Do you want to go out with me for a drink sometime?\”

I thought this guy is joking why would he want to go out with me. So I gave him my phone number with him adding that I was not to tell the other girls at my work that he asked me out.

I said sure, non of their business anyway I thought….

to be continued…got to go grocery shopping NOW!!!

Love Me xxxxxxxxxx

Photo of me around about this time and the models I was dressing.
