Busy week!

It's been a while, and my excuse is work, work, work, castings, castings, castings, plus of course the fact that there is just no point posting images of myself in my yoga pants heading to Crunch, or wearing jeans and a tank top to walk the dog. But the other day, I actually remembered to take a picture on my way home before I changed into my gym clothes and went to hit the treadmill...!

  • floral romper: Wyatt
  • shades: Coach
  • chain strap bag: Marc Jacobs
  • platforms (not in picture - sorry!): Elizabeth & James
  • no jewelry except for pearl studs - I figured the rest of the outfit was busy enough for what I was doing that day
  • ice coffee from Dunkin' Donuts... and the little gray, mollusk-like thing is just my very unstylish key ring! :)

Making your signature style more casual

What if you have a full day of castings, voice class and a chiropractor visit, and are craving pearls, chain strap bags, powder pink mixed with black, pencil dresses... but need to be comfy and able to move fast from appointment to appointment without losing your cool or getting bleeding blisters? Not to mention, most of your castings call for a "casual" look? Well, you compromise!
  • jeans: Miss Me
  • powder pink t-shirt: H&M
  • black cardigan: Flash (chain store in Sweden)
  • sandals: ShoeDazzle
  • silver necklace and earrings: old stuff that I've had forever... couldn't really wear any statement pieces for what I was doing today
  • chain/pearl belt: some cheap wholesale store on 6 Ave in the 30s (you know, one of those where you can "only make a purchase if you're a wholesaler" but as soon as you wave a couple of dollar bills in the owner's face, he'll let you buy whatever you want :D)
  • chain strap bag: Kate Spade

Working hard for the money

Just came home after 12 hours on set - thank God the shoot was in the Meatpacking district, close to home! And thank God I remembered to bring flipflops for the breaks! :)

  • jumpsuit: DVF
  • necklace: French Connection
  • bangles: street fair
  • earrings: gift from my mom
  • belt: Filippa K
  • purse: Kate Spade
  • shoes: was wearing Calvin Klein heels all day but walked home in flipflops... there was a time when I would rather have died than done something that unfashionable, but these days I just have no shame.

Not a very glamourous day

This is how happy I look when I have to spend my Sunday sifting through the aisles of Home Depot, trying to figure out whether Krud Kutter, Greased Lightning, Goof Off or Goo Gone is the best choice for removing permanent marker from clothing.... instead of catching a Vinyasa class and then going to the park. My boyfriend, the accomplished graffiti artist, had gotten Sharpie on his new Lucky Brand jeans and as the lady of the house, it was my job to take care of it. Le sigh...
  • halter crochet dress: can't remember the designer - got to keep it after I worked for her as a showroom model at Coterie
  • feather earrings: street vendor on Astor Place
  • bracelets: Judith's Jewelry
  • tote & shades: Coach
  • shoes: not visible but I'm wearing golden strappy sandals!
And if anyone wants to know, all those stain removers that I mentioned above can suck it...! I had no luck with either of them, but got the stain out completely (without damaging the fabric or stripping out any of the blue denim color) by using Garnier Fructis hairspray and a fair amount of paper towels. Who'd have thought!? :)

Hanging with the pup

We're basically on our way out - I'm just trying to decide on which ice coffee flavor I want today... French vanilla? Pistacchio? Chocolate toffee? Chocolate raspberry? Coconut cream?

And also, I need to pick out a handbag - I am thinking something oversized and floppy. Decisions, decisions...
  • maxidress: Nicole Miller
  • slippers: DKNY
  • necklace: street fair find
  • sunglasses: Coach
  • puppy: purebred Chinese Crested Powderpuff - doesn't get much better than this!

  • bracelet: Scoop
  • bag: Kate Spade
Hope everyone's having a great weekend! xo

An almost unbelievable transformation

From tired and cranky New Yorker to 1920s bohemian party girl on the beach!

  • jeans: Arden B
  • top: Kookai
  • cardi: Stenstroms
  • sneakers: Champion
  • sunglasses: Ann Taylor
  • bag: Kate Spade
  • all vintage.... linen harem pants, beaded silk blouse, men's brogues, crochet beret, costume jewelry - most fun outfit I've worn for work in a very long time! Wish I could have kept the clothes! :)

Thank God for empire dresses...

Feeling super fat and bloated after having done three long days/nights on set with no sleep and nothing to eat but junk (yeah, you can only have so much fruit and veggies before you want something "real" and then you're stuck with all the stuff that is loaded with fat, sugar or sodium... ugh). Betsey Johnson to your rescue!!!

  • empire dress: Betsey Johnson
  • butterfly necklace: Mandee
  • silk floral earrings: Pilgrim
  • tote & shades: Coach
  • shoes: fitflops (I have a 4 hour walk coming up, so I don't really have a choice!)
Happy Sunday, everyone. :)

Before and after

On the left: half asleep on my way out 6AM-ish yesterday...
  • denim shorts: Miss Me
  • top: Theory
  • hoodie: Balettakademien
  • slippers: Aldo
  • bag: Longchamp
On the right: after the hair/wardrobe/makeup transformation at work.
  • vintage, vintage, vintage
And I get to do it all over again today.... thank God I was not born 100 years ago, 'cause the 1920's look is really not very flattering on me.

Last day on Damages before summer

In other words, spending this beautiful day indoors. :(

  • dress: gift from a designer, I think it's Uzi
  • belt: Forever 21
  • ballerina flats: Delia's
  • bag: Furla
  • shades: Coach
  • earrings & necklace: gray pearls... what else?

Monday, June 6, 2011

One of those days

Studying voice over copy, juggling phone calls, trying out new recipes, selecting images from a test shoot, preparing for an audition... no reason to dress up today.

  • shorts: Delia's
  • top: Nanette Lepore
  • necklace: Urban Outfitters
  • bracelet: Snoe of Scandinavia
  • earrings: diamond studs, got them as a gift way back
  • bag & sunglasses: Coach
  • shoes: golden fitflops
Also, I'm propped up with the latest Hollywood Reporter and my puppy Angel. I feel sorry for everyone who has to wear a suit today - it's 70ish in New York. :)

Castings on a Saturday...

... not sure how I feel about that.
  • romper: Diane von Furstenberg
  • belt: Filippa K
  • heels: ShoeDazzle
  • bangles: street vendor stuff
  • necklace: A Bit Of Whimsy by Jillian Matney... I blogged about it here way back!
  • bag: Coach
Oh, and that's my puppy in the background. :D

On- and off-duty

On the right: 6AM earlier today, on my way to my part time TV job. Refusing to wear a suit, as usual...
  • dress: my very first LBD that I bought as a teenager at a small boutique back home... it's still looking pretty good! :)
  • belt: Charlotte Russe
  • heels: Steve Madden (I wisened up and changed into ballerina flats right after I took the picture - don't want the sound guy to hate me)
  • pearl necklace: high school graduation gift from my parents
  • pearl earrings: gift from my Mom
  • bag: Kate Spade
  • sunglasses: Coach
And on the left: later at night, on my way out to enjoy the evening with the boyfriend and our puppy.
  • jeans: Arden B
  • top: Filippa K
  • sneakers: Champion - got to keep them after a runway show that I did... I'm aware that sneakers are frowned upon by fashion editors and their entourage, but guess how much I care? They're perfect for the doggie park. :)
  • bag: same chain strap tote from Kate Spade that I used earlier in the day!
Also, I lost the pearl necklace but kept the earrings. Why not, right?

  • platforms: Elizabeth & James
  • necklace: ShoeDazzle
  • bangles: "forgot" to return them to the stylist after a job that I did... ooops
  • sunglasses: Coach

Braving spring allergies in my namesake dress

No sleep last night... hello puffy eyes and stuffed throat. I almost feel like going out in my jammies (only getting ice coffee and a banana) but felt like I need to make some kind of effort in case the paparazzi show up...! :D

  • dress: "Malin" dress from Delia's - yes, it was indeed named after yours truly and designed with my style in mind!
  • shoes: DKNY
  • purse: vintage find
  • sunglasses: Coach
  • bracelets: Judith's Jewelry
  • necklace: bought it from a broke-ass girl who was selling half of her closet on Craigslist after she lost her job during the recession
Quite a mix-and-match... I hope anyone who's reading this is not feeling as crappy as I am right now! xo
