If you follow me on Instagram, or if you’ve picked up the most recent issue of People Style Watch Magazine, then you know that I was featured in their August edition of the “You Got It Right” section! (insert excited squeal here!) And I can’t even begin to tell you how thrilled, flattered, and honored I am that they would select one of my outfits to share in their magazine. It is seriously a dream come true. And to be honest, I’m having a hard time even wrapping my head around it!
So today, I thought I would share a bit of the back story with you. People had actually reached out to me in April letting me know they wanted to use my photo. And so in turn, I filled out some model release forms, did an interview, and after several emails back and forth, was told I would most likely be in the August issue of the magazine (barring any last-minute editing changes), but that they would confirm with me when they went to press. After that, I never heard back from them. I even sent a follow-up email that received no response, and so I figured I must have been left on the cutting room floor. But when I arrived at the SLC airport following a work trip on the day the issue hit stands, my phone lit up like a Christmas tree, buzzing with Facebook and text messages from friends near and far telling me the news. As you can imagine-it was a pretty thrilling moment. So I rushed to the nearest newsstand, found a copy, opened it up, and THERE. I. WAS! Little old me in a magazine! Insane I tell you, and a pretty sweet moment that I won’t soon forget!
I’ve also had quite a few questions on product details. The outfit I’m wearing in the magazine is actually from a post I did back in March, but I have listed all of the details and links below. You can also feel free to click here if you want to see the original post.
