I have exciting news!! The Winter 2011 Vera Bradley Catalog is available online. You are probably wondering why this is such great news.
Well, about 5 months ago, a sorority sister sent an e-mail over our list serv that Vera Bradley was accepting applications for models for the winter catalog. I always apply for random performance opportunities and things of that nature, and me being from Fort Wayne (where Vera Bradley was founded and is located) got me really excited about this possibility. I applied stating my relationship with the company as being a friend of one of the marketing copy-writers. We were in Beauty and the Beast a few years ago in Fort Wayne’s community theater, so I sent him a brief e-mail to let him know that I was using him as my reference.
I hadn’t heard anything for a while so I just assumed that they had millions of applications and wasn’t surprised that I didn’t get picked until….I got an e-mail saying they were very excited to use me in the catalog!
Brian and I headed up to Chicago for the day to shoot on Navy Pier. We arrived early so we were able to watch other girls have their photos taken, talk with the girls in charge of the shoot, and really soak up this amazing experience. Everyone was just wonderful to work with, and I hope that I am able to stay connected 🙂
That pose was harder than you think, they literally would count to three and I would flale (is that a word?) my legs up and out while smiling, holding the bag in a good viewing position, without spreading my legs too far. Honestly, it was a lot more tiring than I expected! I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
Moving on to the usual.
I started off with a chocolate covered strawberry smoothie.
Have a great start to the week!
