My Fifteen Seconds

Last month I had the amazing opportunity to appear in Worcester Magazine! My friend Punky asked friends via facebook if they'd be free and willing to model for a photo shoot that would accompany an article on what just so happens to be my very favorite thing, aside from baby bunnies: thrift shopping! Of course I'z like, "Pick me, pick me!" And she'z like mmk.

The first day we shot at Armsby Abbey on Main St in Worcester:
On me:
Dress: Betsy Johnson via Abby's House Thrift Shop
Shoes: (mine!!) Marc Jacobs via Alexis Grace Consignment
Bonus: We got to enjoy our drinks! My sweet berry wine was amazing!
My new friend Jaime. Read her blog here. feet made it into WoMag ;) 

The second day we shot in Worcester's infamous Kelley Square.
On me:
Vintage Denim Dress: (mine!!) via Goodwill
Shoes: (Punky's..jealous) Jeffrey Campbell via Alexis Grace Consignment
Again with my feet! Seriously coveting these mirrored Jeffrey Campbells. Le sigh..
Kind of now a fan of hot pink lips! 

Oh, & a favorite blogger of mine also modeled for the mag! :)

On Julie:
Shirt: Savers
Lepoard Print Belt: Savers
Vintage Leather Skirt: Haberdash Vintage
My little sister!
On Alli:
Skirt worn as dress: (mine!!) via Goodwill
Animal print belt: (mine!!) via Goodwill children's section

It was so funny, when either of us had a turn in front of the camera we could not stand being watched by the other. At one point she caught me peeking during her shoot and just yelled, "Seriously Hil!" Heh.

It was such a fun experience, I wish it could be my life every day! We got to have our hair and makeup done (well.. they didn't really know what to do with my hair!), wear gorgeous vintage and thrifted items, and go to fun locations around Worcester! I can't say enough good things about the whole experience. The editor and photographer were so so encouraging and fun to be around, and I even made some new friends!

Be sure to check out the whole article & gallery!
