Hey, everyone! I hope the weekend is treating you well. If you have followed my blog, you may know that I occasionally do some modeling- mainly print ads and commercials. Ironically, they rarely involve fashion!
I had an audition the other day for a commercial in which I had to embody the look of a girl attending a big party. I chose to wear a hot pink Vince Camuto dress that I purchased at Marshall’s about a year ago. I thought it would be memorable to those booking the models since it is so bright. I also chose to wear minimal jewelry as to not clutter the look or be a distraction on camera.
I love the cut of this dress. I feel like the a-line mold is universally flattering, so I am surprised that there were so many of these hanging on the rack at Marshall’s. Maybe the brand just produced too much overstock? I don’t know. But it is made of really good quality and has pockets, and the color is suitable to any season. I actually wore it out for Valentine’s Day! (I couldn’t find this particular dress online, but HERE is a blue one with a similar cut.)
My husband surprised me with the Gucci bag for Christmas two years ago. How impeccable is his taste?! The bag has a detachable shoulder strap and bamboo handles. And the black leather is timeless.
The Nine West shoes have the tiniest of heels. I am very tall, and I really stink at walking in heels! I am not a shoe person at all, unless it’s flat and it’s a sneaker. I have extra narrow feet, and all shoes (even narrows) require my husband to hammer extra holes into the straps so I can tighten them. Maybe this is a good thing, because if shoes did fit me well, I would be spending tons more money! (These particular shoes are no longer available, but you can shop similar ones HERE.)
To keep with the party vibe, I decided to try the half-up, half-down topknot style I have been seeing all over Instagram and Pinterest. I very rarely wear my hair down, nor have I ever worn my hair this way, but I just decided to go for it! I sure hope it pays off!
Do you think I chose the right outfit? I sure hope I did, but there is such a slim chance that I will actually book the job. But I still had fun!
That’s what’s up in the party section of my wardrobe. Thanks for reading!
