Pop of BLUE for Spring!

This look was inspired by Spring using light sky blues! Mutiny Pigment is not one of my favorite pigments/color - but after a couple of experimenting it's become quite wearable for everyday! I LOVE this look. Seriously.

What to wear to a modeling casting call (Go-See)

Throughout the 8 years i've been modeling (commercial/print), I've seriously learned a lot about what works and what doesn't work for a modeling casting call. These outfits that i'm going to be showing you - are THE MOST VERY BASIC!

Things to remember:
*Look as simple as possible.
*Plain is key.
*Little to NO MAKEUP!
*Wear little to no deoderant (the streaks will leave a stain on your clothes AND theirs..no bueno.)
*Wear your hair down/natural. Bring a hair tie just in case.
*Always be ontime or early!
*Bring your agency book/pictures/comp cards!
*Wear strapless NUDE bra, and wear NUDE THONGS!
*Bring bathing suit! No pattern preferably. If client wants to see you in a bathing suit, arrive with it underneath your clothes!

Here are the outfits that I have chosen as my go-to looks for castings (including runway)!

Tank top (find here), skinny jeans (find here), and black heels (find here).
**Client wants to see fitted shirts/pants for a better look at what your body shape is like. Tall and lean is the KEY! Don't wear anything baggy or loose. Also, keep the layers to a MINIMUM! It will make you look bigger than usual. Tank tops are a must because clients WANT to see bare shoulders.**

Black dress (Similar one here). Perfect for Runway casting or your regular casting call.

**Dresses are ideal for runway castings because the movement and flow of the dress can help determine what the designers clothes will look like on you. Nothing too short of a dress, or too puffy works best. And showing legs are a HUGE plus! Clients want to see length! Don't forget, black heels are a MUST!**

Tank top, skirt (similar one here), and black heels.

**Also ideal for runway castings! Fitted skirts are workable because you can see your body shape easily. Nothing too short, or it will be inappropriate. Business, upscale, and model-esque is key. Not skanky. ;)**

Tank top, fitted black pants (similar ones here), and black heels.

**This is super ideal for high fashion runway casting calls. Designer wants fitted black pants because they want to see how you walk! That's probably the most important thing to remember..your walk tells all! So wear something that can help emphasize your shape while you walk.**

I'm not saying i'm a TOTAL expert at this stuff, but from my experience - this is what i've learned. Hope this helps somewhat - and work with what you GOT! Nothing has to be exact here. If all else fails - ask your agency to wear or expect from the clients. They are very helpful!

My Neiman Marcus modeling pics!

I was looking through my mom's Neimans catalogue that came in the mail today - and I totally flipped the page and saw my face! I was shocked and remembered the shoot that I did for them couple months back. The concept of the photos were supposed to represent the perfume bottles and then have still life in the background. I think they captured it just lovely! So here they are :)

And Anna..if you're reading this. I love you :)


Tutorial: A little bit of Purple!

On my last video called "Birthday Haul" - I had a lot of viewers request to see the makeup look I was wearing! You know me, very super easy and simple...so here it is! (Used Benefits creasless eyeshadow in Stiletto)
