A huge blog that I love and follow asked me months ago if they could profile me. Honored but nervous, I agreed to a shoot date, then canceled with no intention of rescheduling. I enjoy participating and being quoted in articles; I just don’t crave the spotlight and hate being photographed. A few days later I was in Tod’s chatting with a fellow shopper about loafers and the woman mentioned that she loves a blog called Keep it Chic–I realized that she didn’t recognize me as the author because I rarely post pictures of myself.
So, I went back and rescheduled the shoot. Inspired by this image of Claudia, I was photographed outside yesterday in a big coat and sunglasses with my hair (hopefully) covering part of my face.
