Live and Learn

I'm still alive! I'm staying with my best friend in Harlem and absolutely loving it. Remember when I said I had big news? Well, on Friday I helped style my very first photo shoot for a mainstream magazine: I was the assistant to Kate Harrowsmith, fashion editor of the Australian Marie Claire. It was, in a word, awesome. It was a twelve hour work day, but every single minute was totally worth it. 

I'd planned to wear a dress and heels, but apparently that is a huge no-no. A friend of mine who works in the biz told me they can always spot a novice because of what they're wearing, so at the last minute I decided to run out and buy some cheap flats. I ended up kind of hating the ones I bought, but they were the least horrible option. When I met the crew that was working on the shoot I was a tad embarrassed; every single person was wearing a t-shirt, jeans, and converse. Oh well, I loved my dress, and next time I guess I'll know better.

The dress is from Salvation Army (hemmed by me), the shoes are from Rainbow.

  10. Warm dog clothing Abercrombie Polos is made in many different popular fabrics as well. You Abercrombie Polos can get sweaters which are made out of fleece, jackets ed hardy Hats made with micro fiber faux suede as well as knits and standard cotton blends. The Ed Hardy Sale best place to find all of these selections though is through the internet. When Ed Hardy Swimwear you go to the local pet store, if they have any selection at all, their Ed Hardy Swimwear prices can be expensive. The same also goes for specialty shops. However dog Ed Hardy Swimwear apparel on the internet are cheap and since they are even delivered to your front door, you get even more savings.
