a closet tour video


(By Claudia Escobar, via the feast)

So here it is, the closet tour video. Basically several minutes of dresses galore and Donut the Cat lounging in the background looking rather fat and amazing. As comfortable as I am being photographed I still hate being in videos, so filming this made me quite nervous. I can't help but cringe hearing my own voice recorded and seeing my dumb hand gestures. But I'm sure most people can relate to that. And hey, there's nothing like a bunch of lacey vintage goodness to distract the eye!


P.S. Yes, that is Nadinoo's Untie Me Dress I'm wearing with the large bow in front!

Lovely look inside your closet! Haha, you do a fine job on video, nothing to worry about!

aw, you did great! i know what you mean about video though, my husband and I shot some video footage last weekend of me for a lookbook sort of thing, and i was sooo nervous and awkward even though it was just me and my husband! silly :)

Anna said...

Cute!

Ashley said...

I know exactly what you mean! I used to hate watching recordings of the band's shows or recordings of plays I was in. Pictures are one thing, but when I see how often I make x or y face...ugh, fuggeddaboutit!

You were totally adorable, though. And your closet is amazing (as is Donut, obvs!) And apologies if this makes me a creeper, but one of the dresses you're wearing a Nadinoo dress? I believe it's one of the ones I'm planning to buy this month, haha! It looks great on you, btw!

You did a wonderful job! I love your personality, your closet, your kitty, everything!

I would love a shimmery dress like yours to wear out for a night of karaoke. That red/pink hat is amazing as well.

LOVE.

Dammit Ashley, why can't you live in London so we could be friends? (and so I could catnap Donut). Your voice is lovely, but I always hate listening to myself too x

Lovely lovely lovely! You sound a bit like Zooey Deschanel, I think. And I love how passionately you talk about vintage clothing! It really shines through how much you love it.

Leah said...

It's so odd, even though I logically know you're American, the accent still surprises me!
You're gorgeous and you did beautifully, and your wardrobes are amazing.

Christy said...

I love when bloggers post videos! It's fun to see if the voice I've had in my head matches the reality. You certainly have no reason to feel embarrassed about the video! I think you look and sound lovely, and while your closet is admittedly swoon-worthy, Donut is clearly the star of the show. ;)

Lydia said...

Everyone hates the sound of their own voice recorded, it's always so different in our heads...

I really liked this video, super envious of the lovely closet chock full of vintage...also Donut is pretty much the cutest thing ever! Especially adorable was sleepy eyed Donut chillin' in the background.
