We Should Have Been Models

Spontaneous photo shoots are good for the soul.  They can be done alone, with a friend, or in a group.  If you’re having an insanely bad day or an insanely good day, they are the perfect pastime to use as a means of rediscovering your inner model.  On a bad day, however, your photos may be a little more artistic and emo in reflection of your mood.  My friend Amy and I rediscovered our inner models over the weekend and it was a beautiful thing!

Taking casual photos also serves as great practice for being photographed by the paparazzi.  Every socialite has to be comfortable around multiple cameras.  This particular photo shoot is so Zooey Deschanel meets Rachel McAdams.  Like Cher epically reminded us in the movie Clueless which is required socialite viewing, you can’t trust mirrors so you always need to take a picture of that day’s look.  Thanks to digital photography, you don’t have to use polaroids like they did for instant photo gratification in 1995.  These photos were taken on Photo Booth software which only further brings out the magic of Apple technology even more.  Maybe next time we’ll dig up a Cher style polaroid camera for the sake of nostalgia.

Socialite Sunday Photo Shoot

If you think being a socialite is nothing but smoke and mirrors, think again. It’s serious business that requires constant self-reflection. For one who aspires to be in the public eye, it is important to always know who you really are. Let’s face it, if I’m planning on becoming a socialite celebrity one day, I need to start making my face more recognizable.  Over the weekend, my neighbor and I did a mini photo shoot in some of our favorite looks by the mirror in her apartment.  It was tons of fun and great practice for being photographed by the paparazzi.  In true NYC style, our photo shoot was followed by brunch.  Above you see me in one of the fab fitted tees from my Aspiring Socialite T-Shirt Line.  Click here to get one of your own.
