So... I'm in Marie Claire this month. I've got a little snippet in a street style section. Here's how this happened:

It was way back in February. I was working at Anthro, putting some go-backs away, and all of a sudden these three really fashionable people walk in. They approach me. They basically say, "We're from Marie Claire and we want to take your picture." Well, that's all I heard anyway. In my mind I was thinking, "ME?!??!" I ask my manager if I can take a 10 so "Marie Claire could take a picture of me" and I felt REALLY cool. Then we go outside and they have me pose on this banister, and I felt like I was going to fall off. The fashionable people were really nice to me and I was really awkward back. And then I went back to work.

... It was a cooler story in my head.

Happy weekend!

  19. That's awesome! I got my issue a couple of days ago, and it's been sitting on my coffee table since. Just busted it open and there you are! Now, I have a question that has been on my mind about this section in the magazine... did you actually say that quote? One time I read the same exact quote that was in an American version in the UK version! Made me think the just write them in... Regardless, you look adorable! Congrats!

  25. I really like your usage of internet memes. I remember one time at Anthro I heard you say 'this is why we can't have nice things' and the person you said it to didn't understand the meme, and I felt a little sad for her. Anyway, I just like you.

  27. Haha! Thanks! And well... my quote was edited and simplified a little... but I don't really mind too much considering I was basically a blubbering idiot that day. Haha!
