calivintage + dvf + brad goreski!

you may remember a couple of weeks ago i went on a whirlwind trip to los angeles to work on a super secret project with dvf. well, today can finally reveal what i was up to: i was invited along with three other bloggers to the diane von furstenberg store on melrose to check out the clothes and to style up a pair of shoes from their new collection with brad goreski! and i was delighted to discover that the video was featured in the dvf newsletter and is currently residing on the front page of their site! i am absolutely honored to have been asked to participate in the project and am so proud to share it with you guys today!

so here’s the rundown: we arrived bright and early in los angeles greeted by the wonderful staff offering us delicious breakfast treats and piping hot coffee before being whisked away to hair and makeup for our day of filming to begin. we each got to pick out our favorite pair of shoes and build an outfit around them with the help of celebrity stylist, brad goreski (of rachel zoe project fame, hello!). i was immediately drawn to these amazing felicity heels with their sort of boy meets girl mash-up of a menswear-inspired loafer crossed with a super tall platform heel. we worked together to create a look and then it was time for lights, camera, action! i have to admit that i’m not exactly a seasoned veteran when it comes to being filmed for video. usually i just snap a few pictures on the weekends for my blog, so it was a very new experience to be filmed while talking and moving, haha! once we were done, i got to prance around the store to ooh and ahh at all of the pretty shoes and clothes, so i snapped a few more photos to show you what it was like behind-the-scenes. and be sure to watch the rest of the videos on the dvf site right now!

    Ah!!! You’re so bubbly! Cute!

    It’s so funny when you read a girl’s blog for years and then you finally hear her speak. You and Kelly Oxford sound nothing like I imagined.

    The internet never ceases to amaze me.

    • erin (calivintage) October 21, 2011 at 1:23 pm #

      haha, i don’t know if i actually sound like that. or at least it’s just as weird to hear the sound of your own voice… haha!

  11. vanessa October 21, 2011 at 12:42 pm #

    You are the cutest! And those shoes? Ba-nan-as.

  12. Isabel, Wake up & smell the azahar October 21, 2011 at 1:37 pm #

    Cutest shoes ever! So nice to heard your blog after reading your blog for a long time. Like Veronica said I didn’t expect your voice to sound like that. Well, to be honest, I’d never imagined your voice lol

    I have so much to say about this post!

    Firstly it’s really neat to hear you talk! And also I so agree about loafers being the new ballet flat.

    And lastly, you know what this means? You’re one degree away from Mary Kate and Ashley! :D
