My dear Readers, you may have noticed a new link in my sidebar resembling a curious magazine feature:
YA GIRL'S IN SEVENTEEN, BABY!!
Okay, so here's le scoop:
Just after the Weardrobe bloggers' Conference had ended, Jessica of WhatIWore referred me to a calling Seventeen Magazine was holding for their style council; which is basically a panel of stylish girls who contribute to the magazine with style tips and other bits of fashion-related curiosities. In all honesty, I had submitted my application thingy just for the hell of it with little hope I would be chosen since I just have this horrid complex of not believing in myself when national publications are involved.
Please excuse the exceptionally crappy scan. I wish you could see my brogues in the first photo a little better along with the vintage scarf and broaches I made in better detail, but life goes on.
I hadn't picked up an issue of Seventeen since I was about 14, so this was a pretty interesting experience. I got to meet the AMAZING staff and work inside the Hearst building where all of the Hearst publications are produced (Esquire,Marie Claire, Redbook, etc.).
((thanks to Sammy for the clarification!))
So, what I have posted below me is a video that I shot and edited myself for Seventeen. I was asked to give an introduction on myself and show off my closets.
I'm just warning you though, I'm pretty good at making a complete ass of myself (as you will see) ENJOY!
I am such a dingbat.
Fun facts about this video:
-This is the first video I have ever shot/edited myself, it took me 4 hours to finish.
-The first shots are in my 3rd floor studio/attic/wreck-room where I shoot most of my blog photos. I pretty much live in my studio, I actually sleep up there and not in my bedroom.
-The I Heart NY poster was given to me the first year I moved to Buffalo. I miss NYC terribly and I keep it up as a reminder of where my roots are.
-The mannequin in my room is from the Pottery Barn circa 2004, it eerily has the same measurements as me.
We are featured in the March issue (The one with Lauren Conrad on the cover) on page 46 & it's out on newsstands now should you ever wanna see the girls for yourself!
My next feature in Seventeen will be in the May issue and the June/July issue. In the meanby, I will be blogging on the Style Council's section of Seventeen's website!
