If I'm being completely honest... the hardest part about working in TV is figuring out what to wear each shoot. Should I be dressy? Casual? Edgy? Feminine? -For someone like me who enjoys changing up my looks this can get overwhelming - not to mention EXPENSIVE!!!!! I mean... I can not afford to be buying a $200 dress every time I make an appearance! #nothappening
THANKFULLYYYYYYYYY I have some incredibly talented friends around me who help ensure that I'm TV ready each week. I was so happy with how this week's EXTRA look turned out that I thought I'd break down all the deets in a lil blggity blog. :)
Let's start with this RIDICULOUS MAKEUP JOB a la @LyndsayZMakeup:
Unfortunaltely I can't even begin to go into a full product breakdown because it would take FOREVERRRRRR. The key to getting the perfect glow is layering the right products and that's exactly what she did. Look at the sparkle on these eyes!!!
I love how the makeup colors she chose really went perfectly with the dress. The pattern itself is pretty girly so we wanted to do a little but of an edgy/smokey eye as a contrast. The sparkle was an added bonus and looked GORGE underneath the lights on set.
Now THIS DRESS. OMG I'm so in love with it. It's by an Australian brand called Cooper Street and my stylist Shelby from www.NightCapPR.com pulled it for me. When a stylist "pulls" a look that typically means that the client [being me] would wear the item on TV, or for whatever shoot It's needed for, and then it'd be returned. It works really well because the on camera talent isn't having to purchase all these new pieces every week, and the brand itself is getting great exposure by being worn on national television. #WinWin
Onto the shoes! These strappy beauties are by Charles David [you can purchase them by clicking here]. Shelby thought these would be the perfect way to complete the feminine yet edgy look. I love how pairing a soft floral with a black shoe is so unexpected. Typically I would have gone with a nude but somehow these babies just pulled everything together. The purse is one that I featured a couple weeks ago on EXTRA's Shop the Scoop segment and it's by Tess Handbags. I've literally worn it every day since I featured it - genuine leather - gray - gorgeousness!
Thanks again to my girls Lyndsay & Shelby for putting this look together. Love you two!!!!
