Palm Springs and VH1

Monday, January 17, 2011

Have a gig in Palm Springs as you read this, and spent the weekend prepping wardrobe wise for what is most definitely vague territory.
I'll be interviewing a certain celeb, and wearing some of my fave vintage gear in the process, while VH1 films the entire thing. (I can't give too many deets yet, but I promise they'll come!)
Being my own stylist and helping other lovely ladies find and wear their best gear is something I live and die for...
But when the reality cam is watching our every moment and production begins at 4:30AM (yes, you heard me right) and there is so much to do, and several days of changes...
Well, my entire house ends up looking a little something like this.
God bless the amazing man in my life for putting up with this madness. But luckily, once the wardrobe chaos settles and narrows down a bit, I've come up with a pretty good system for organizing my looks.
It's sort of like a clothing and accessory explosion until I finally make my choices (and once I've tried on about everything in my closet!)
One of the best tricks I've learned from set is to plan every look from head to toe, and organize the accessories together with their corresponding outfit when packing.

I use little ziplock bags to hang them on the hanger. Easy!
It definitely makes it less stressful when getting ready, as you don't have to think about it. I sometimes even pin a ripped out magazine tear for inspiration. I not only do this for shoots, but for all packing in general. (I promise, it helps!)

Have a fantastic week and check back in for deets and road trip photos!

Jacket & belt - vintage
Tank - H&M
Shorts - random boutique on Main Street


  1. Love this post..
    I use the SAME trick (poking through the bag to put on the hanger) when styling for fashion shows (that is my area of expertise) - Don't underestimate the power of a ziplock baggie is my motto!
