Today I’m sharing a few hidden secrets about myself and how I’m styling a fair isle sweater with corduroys this season.
Want to know a secret? In 8th grade, I begged my parents to let me go to boarding school. Not only did I grow up down the street from one of the country’s most well-known private boarding schools, but I was also watching Felicity at the time. Even though my fellow curly haired girl was in college, the idea of being at a school independently and overnight was alluring.
Want to know another secret about myself?
I used to dream I would get discovered walking down the street and become a famous actress or model overnight. I read a lot of young adult novels where this had happened. But I have also had a few close encounters to five minutes of fame.
As a first grader, I was the only little kid chosen out of my grade to be a talking mouse in a local acting company’s version of Pinocchio. I remember being on the stage with the grown ups, thinking it was where I wanted to always be.
When I was a middle schooler, I was approached to audition for a movie filming locally in our town. I never went to the casting call since the part was rather risqué. Later I went on to take part in four school plays from 6-9th grade. In three plays I was cast as a dancer and one play I was cast as an actual actress. Later in high school, I modeled for a Redken contest, but didn’t win.
I know many kids dream of being famous someday. A part of me still not-so-secretly would love to take an acting class and audition for a local play.
I don’t know if there is any talent behind my desires, but the passion is there. The older I get, the more I wish I could do something with the creativity brewing inside… so I turn to this blog.
My latest installment of fashion posts are truly an enjoyment to put together. My friend Beth makes it possible, working her magic behind the camera as I play inexperienced awkward model for her. I love to put together affordable outfits with whatever I have in my closet, or share any inexpensive purchases I’ve made (or want to make), with my readers.
I’ve been eyeing fair isle sweaters this year as well, love this layered look girl! As always your hair is on point!
