Wayyyy back last November, I was contacted by the Kit to be one of the Kit Girls for March. To say I was incredibly flattered and extremely excited was a bit of an understatement - obviously, I accepted!
Well! At last my hard copies of the feature have arrived! That's right, folks, I can finally see this thing up close & personal AND, more importantly, I can finally share it with you. The article actually ran on March 21st which I was quasi-able to see via my Toronto tweeter friends but I couldn't very well share the news with you having only a half-visible instagram picture now could I?
Not going to lie, it was a little weird seeing it. I glazed over it, got excited, got slightly mortified, put it aside, picked it up, blushed, felt foolish, got excited and finally, read it. HOWEVER it wasn't all humble weirdness, it was also very exciting to see how well everything came together. How a chat with Lola Augustine, a photo shoot with Shaun Simpson and my own styling, hair & makeup [I know, I know -I'm a triple threat] all worked together to get this feature above into print.
Having shot and styled this back in December, it was also interesting to see what I thought I would be wearing this season [coughweatheroptimistcoughcough] and how my style has evolved and changed since then. Based on my blog lately, if I styled the look in March I would have likely drifted towards tangerine and stripes- my chiffon shirt with white jeans, or my tangerine jeans with my striped blazer - and I would have MOST DEFINITELY worn my nude pumps because, let's face it, I'm obsessed!
All in all this was a fantastic experience and I can't thank Lola and The Kit enough for bringing me in for this. My only regret? Not smiling more! Even though it was cold out I have watched enough Top Model that I should have been able to manage a smile and smize to push through it all. I had a ton of fun and I would definitely jump at the chance to be able to do something like this again in the future!
