Last week, thanks to the awesome folks over at Frantic Films, I got to film a guest spot on the Slice TV show – Princess. If you haven’t seen this reality show – it’s basically about spoiled girls that spend way too much money on makeup/clothes/hair/going out, then milk their friends/family/boyfriends for money, while accumulating a lot of debt in the process. The show’s host and Financial Guru Gail Vaz-Oxlade teaches these “princesses” to live within their means through a series of challenges.
My role in one of the challenges was to critique Sarah-The-Princess’ blog post about style on a student’s budget. It was really exhillarating to have been able to participate in the filming…mostly because I had to push my personal anxieties aside, and step out of my comfort zone to be able to do it.
I’m not exactly sure what my 10 seconds of fame will look like, given that I was trembling like a leaf on the inside…but hopefully I wasn’t a spectacular failure at my first attempt at reality TV. Thank goodness for the wonderful crew, that helped me feel as comfortable as I possibly could. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
As for my outfit…I’ve been getting LOTS of compliments, quizzical looks, and “where did you buy it” questions about this skirt. And the truth is - it was somewhat of a DIY. I chopped off most of the lining to give it a breezy, see-through look, but other than that – it’s from (and courtesy of) Gap! You like?
I Wore: Top – H&M; Skirt – c/o Gap (DIY); Scarf – Alexander McQueen (Holt Renfrew); Shoes – Urban Outfitters; Bag – Prada; Bracelet – BCBG; Ring – YSL; Sunglasses – Ray Ban
