notes from the fashion field

leaving JFK right now, posting from my schmancy new cingular pocket pc. was in town shooting the look for less on long island which is my hometown, homie, so I was super psyched to do this one. flew in on tuesday for a wednesday shoot. stayed with the 'rents in farmingville. had a p/u wednesday morning at 8am from lindy's taxi service. within fifteen minutes, I knew the drivers whole life story including his credit problems and his plans to move to boca with the wife after the son sells his bakery in patchogue. the bad toupee and even worse long island accent were just the icing on the cake. only in new yawk. got to set and said hello to my bestest usual suspects on crew (courtney, chris, james, jill, deanna, yohanna, kelly). jetted to starbux for my new favie, an iced nonfat green tea latte (u can take the girl out of l.a. but you can't dot dot dot). started in on looking for a less pricey dvf wrap dress for our contestant, gayle. ended up picking up a pair of seven jeans and a knock off marc jacobs bag at dalia's on main street in huntington. had lunch with yohanna at some greek joint and ran to the local army/navy store to pick up a huntington sweatshirt for mariah carey. what? yup. she is on kimmel 2nite and david is writing her segment. he asked me to pick something up for mariah in huntington since it is her hometown and I happened to be there. mission accomplished and it was back to work. the next day I did a radio interview with phathead on island 94.3 went shopping at the riverhead outlets with my mum and got a ton of new digs on the cheap. I can spend hours at that place and especially enjoy my favie shop, off fifth for sax. so now its on the fly fly where I'm going to kimmel tonite and chicago next week for another look for less shoot. bon voyage.

Just finished watching the Modern Girls Guide about Faking It, and I loved your hair cut (pre extensions). I am a curly gal too, and was wondering if you had a good picture of your cut?

Jess, It's Katie from Nordy's. I think you said you were going to be in town this weekend. Call me...I hope you still have my number, cause I would rather not publish it on your blog. Otherwise the gals at Michigan Ave know how to find me.
