So, finally, the time has come where I can share the hush, hush about the filming I've been doing... oh but wait, I think I want to do that on my food blog this coming Monday. I find the topic of my show to be far more fitting there than here. It's coming, it's coming, I promise and I can't wait! But, I will say that the last few days of filming in D.C. were the most exhausting even though running down my script had become a breeze! We tossed it and left it to my improv skills to chit chat about my featured locations (wink)... and guests. I have a great producer that modifies and adjusts accordingly. She's so fun and just makes it come to life.
It ultimately worked out. However, you know how hindsight is 20/20? I'm looking at these looks and thinking of how lax I was in styling myself. Yes, the makeup was done well, with falsies and everything, hands were mani'd, etc... But the wardrobe. This is where I'm having a hard time reconciling. To my credit, 85% of my wardrobe is in storage in Atlanta and I have (still) very limited clothes with me. I had to work with what I had on me. And, the network stylist is in NY! For some reason, pulling from boutiques became a task I didn't have time to commit to. Not to mention we started filming 4 days after I relocated to D.C. Talk about pressure and no time.
I need an assistant, right?! For every aspect of this process! Because yes, I still have 8 more episodes and 16 locations to film. That gives me the opp to get it together to refine and switch up the look. I need to really showcase me; The shoes, the hats, the jewelry, great hairdo's -- funky, boho, classic, chic, bold, but timeless. More or less like this for more relaxed locations. I can't let the subject or format of my show dictate what I wear, unless of course it were some risqué theme where I'd rock something way left field. Thankfully, that's not the case. Well, my last location might raise some eyebrows! lol. ;) ;)
For now, I'll retreat these looks for simple outings and not cameras that record everything. I can only imagine what the B roll looks like! They work, no doubt, just not in the way I need and want to portray myself and my brand! :) And obviously compliment the other hostesses on the exciting new online network! We're all being so chic.
