Playing the Part

today’s closetcast: fun little Saturday ImageImageImageImageImage

Back in late December, my friend Victor Samuel of Victor M. Samuel Photography asked me if I would like to collaborate with him on a fun little fashion shoot. I assured him that I, under no circumstances, thought of myself as a model, but thought it would be fun regardless! I have to say, getting my hair and makeup done by the lovely Carrie Aldous was amazing! She was such a pro and made me feel so glamorous! Victor is so talented and made me feel so comfortable even though I am the exact opposite in situations like this!

Even though this blog puts me in front of the camera a few times a week, I usually have the shots away from passersby view because I am so shy! How do you guys think I did? Hope you enjoy the shots!

Neoprene Queen

today’s closetcast: heating up

Loving this very affordable version of the printed pencil skirts that were dominating the runways for Spring this season. This skirt reminds me so much of Peter Pilotto‘s Spring line….. so beautiful – but the H&M version is a touch more attainable for the masses. The best thing about it is the material, it feels like neoprene and is so crazy comfortable! Barneys, Net-A-Porter and ssense are having their sales right now – so it’s incredibly difficult to be “good” right now… anyone else find some great sale pieces?!

New Hem

today’s closetcast: hawaiian inspired 

I really like the mid-calf hemlines of pencil skirts this spring… this skirt is no exception. Although I’m not usually drawn to Hawaiian/Tiki prints (they remind me of those Sadie Hawkins dances in high school where you had to dress like your date… not my most stylish time!), but in this skirt I am sort of digging the washed out, 80s inspired floral print.
