Devon here. In case you don’t know me, I’m Venus & Mars sale’s girl extraordinaire. I’ve been part of the VM dream team for just over six years and I love the store and the brand more than a fat kid loves cake. I had to buy a second wardrobe to house all my VM lovelies but my most treasured item is my black satin reversible steel boned corset. When I wear it I feel like a super hero. I feel like it could stop a bullet. In fact, I love it so much that I gave up a corporate grown up cubical job for my corset.
I had been working as a legal secretary for two years as well as helping out in the shop on weekends. I remember thinking when Sanne first introduced that corset that I just had to own it. I finally bought it, got to wear it, and I felt like a trillion bucks. I would look forward to going to work on weekends because it gave me the opportunity to wear it.
There were many factors in my decision to leave the law firm but my Oprah ‘aha’ moment was when I realized that I wanted to wear my super sexy corset every day and that no benefit from working in a cubical could outweigh that desire. So now I get to wear beautiful, handmade corsets all the time and I get to help other people into beautiful, handmade clothing. WIN!
So, I’m dying to know, what would you change careers for? Let me know in the comments.
Thanks for reading!
