So… this is me.
I needed a head shot, quickly, and I just so happened to have dinner plans with my homie Mollie last night, who is a photographer, and a close enough friend that I can boss her around, so I told her to bring her camera to take my picture before dinner. Then she bossed me around, told me to look here, smile, and we were done. This is the first pic of me that I’ve liked in a long time because a) I think I actually have a natural smile, rather than the “possessed OMG look how happy I am” smile that I usually wear in pics, and 2) I am pregnant, but you can’t see my bump so I can use this for a while, but I do have the pregnant boobs which are really just regular sized boobs for a normal person, but whatever, bonus.
Why did I need a head shot?! So glad you asked. I am going to be a speaker at the Texas Style Council Summer School this year. I am going to be showing people how to accessorize and which shoes to wear with what. HA. Stop laughing. Actually, don’t because I was cracking up as I was writing that. Obv, I have no business advising anyone on wearing anything. Every time I have something to dress for I have to ask George, Alice, my friends in the computer, and my neighbor if it looks ok and I know my ass is huge but is it REALLY huge in this and ok, what about necklaces and oh, can I borrow that one? Yesterday I had to run down the street to a friends house to steal dresses, then come back and have a fashion show for George, then have him pick a dress so I could pick a different one.
Anyway, I’ll be hosting a Q&A for the style ladies to ask me anything as a lawyer and then I’ll try to answer their questions or at least get their card so I can look up the answers and get back to them. The fun part is that I get to attend the rest of the conference, so hopefully being around pretty ladies who dress great will rub off on me.
Participating in an event like this isn’t exactly going to put me in my element, but it feels good to be doing something just for me.
