So last week, my new homies, Emma Arnold and Dana Weiss, and I got to compete in a style challenge presented by Target. In case, you live under a rock and do not know what Target is, it is heaven, light blinding heaven. Next. It was hosted by Zanna Rassi, who also served as judge. Let me tell you, I was peeked when she tweeted me and then I couldn’t get the courage to say hello. You guys know I am not shy and I do not swoon over celebrities but people who’s work I admire…well there I swoon. Also hosting was Courtney Kornegay and at the judges panel was Ikam Goldman, who’s words after the show woke me up inside and encouraged me to let go of fear, Mary Alice Stephenson, who’s work I’ve followed for a longtime and who hopefully can work with/for one day, and Mickey Boardman who’s fabulousness, knowledge and carefree persona has taken him so far, I mean this is home (Chicago’s suburb of Hanover Park) and look where he is at now. I mean, no pressure to be amongst these amazing people.
What I wore:
Target is my go-to for high low style, the shoes, top, jacket all from Target and the skirt is Adam Lippes.
Shannon O’Brian works her magic for Pixie on my second look.
My first look was a fun mix play on prints but I missed the mark with the shoes. I would share a picture but the only one I have had me looking crazy in it. So here is the Instagramed version! Not a the judges favorite from the ankles down so it ended up being last in the first round. My second, shown here got me a 39 out of 40, earning me top score. I was getting 10s across the board until Zanna declared that no one should get a perfect score so she had to give me a 9. But a 9 from Zanna is a 10 in my book. And at the end of the day, the competition came down to Emma Arnold’s first look and my second. My girl Emma took home the bragging rights and I went home with the Dana’s second look. Yes, I bought it. Vegan leather joggers are everything. These girls were a blast to work with and PS shout out to the amazing team that put this thing together. Awesome people to work with.
If you are out in LA, catch the action tonight once more in West Hollywood.
