A Quickie For TV!

I hope you really get to know me and my crazy life over time as you read my posts. I'm so tickled to be here after so long! Once you become a bit familiar with mi vida,  I think you'll be wondering why I'm even taking time to document my obsession with playing dress-up.

In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson "The sense of being perfectly well-dressed gives a feeling of tranquility that religion is powerless to bestow."

Notwithstanding the religion reference, I couldn't agree more. So, yeah, me getting dressed up and well, is important. Only thing is, I don't always have the time to put the effort into it that I'd like...

But when it comes to assignments or proposals with a major purpose, I can quickly make it happen.

This wasn't a bona fide dress up experience, as I'm wearing jeans and not the cocktail dress and evening strappy shoes that qualify quintessential party girl, but I had some direction.

The point was to be ME, every day me, with a bit of more make- up!

I got a call from a producer a few months ago. They needed head shots and tho I won't get into details here, I had to make this happen in less than 24 hours.

This is how it went back in May, even though the weather was acting like a total jerk. Fly-aways have never seen so much attention from my freshly manicured hand!

It was windy and getting ready to rain. Clearly my facial expressions math the climate: Boring.

Love black and white photography. 

And, Photoshop. 

Not the craziest about this one, but the photographer did, so I used it. 

And then the shoes. This was my profile pic on Facebook for a while.  It was about the shoes. 

It's always about the shoes!  

I got the gig which I've yet to announce so stay tuned! Smooches!
