In my previous post about thrifting, I shared with you what I was able to find on an impromptu shopping trip to a second-hand store. I know most things don’t look great on a hanger and it’s hard to envision them on a person so I thought I’d show you what the items look like as I wear them. Recently I went on a commercial audition for Adidas and wore my Petticoat Alley blouse with some black leggings and a white “leather” jacket.
(By the way, I think the friction of my leather purse strap on my “leather” jacket was the reason for a not-so-small tear I noticed in its shoulder yesterday. Sad face. If anyone knows how I can fix that, I would love some advice.)
The blouse was a great choice for my audition, or so I think. The breakdown for the character they were looking for was:
“Cool interesting beautiful – artists, musicians etc etc.”
And the breakdown for the wardrobe was:
“CASUAL – SHOW YOUR STYLE”
As you can see, they didn’t give me much to work with. I decided to go with something loose and “artistic” looking up top and a fitted legging and boots to show my figure. So here’s two photos of the outfit; one with the jacket and one without. It was taken with my camera phone, so please excuse the quality. Hopefully you can still get the jist of what’s happening with it.
Your outfit says a lot about your personality, but I try not to over think it or else I’ll end up with clothing all over my room, in a rush to leave on time, and a frustrated audition experience. Besides, if I’m booked there will be a stylist on set so they don’t need me to go all out with layers, feathers, and six-inch heels.
