When Crystal asked The Everygirl to be a part of Gap's styld.by campaign for the latest issue of Rue, I was a little nervous. I am clearly not a model and I'm very, very uncomfortable in front of the camera. But since you just can't say no to an opportunity like this, we went for it. And even though I'm not smiling, I had lots of fun shooting with my co-founder, photographer Kirsten Miccoli and stylists Brandon + Arlene of Kit This.

We were also contacted by Banana Republic and Career Builder to shoot a series of videos, and as luck would have it, one of my videos (Alaina shot 3 and I shot 2) released first. And yes, I am well aware of the fact that I was looking at the wrong camera so no need to point that out. I am just not cut out for taping at 3:00 am. Or in life.
So excited and honored to team up with these incredible brands, but seeing myself on video is quite possibly the most uncomfortable thing ever. And yes, I got to keep the fierce leather dress. The remaining videos will be released over the next few weeks. Get excited.
...annnnnd I think we've all seen enough of me for one lifetime.
