Growing out of my comfort zone. For most that know me …you know I am an introvert and pretty shy. So for me to do anything that involves putting myself out there for any kind of criticism or judgement completely freaks me out. Nevertheless I do sometimes find my inner extrovert/performer/leo and get myself into some things that are outside my norm. This weekend I found myself dressing up like Frida Kahlo for a model call at DeYoung (Gaultier-inspired fashion event). They asked models to show up dressed in either traditional or modern Frida. I walked in wearing a traditional Frida-like outfit… and then quickly changed into a more modern Frida look (leather jacket, tube top made from a beautiful floral wrap, jeans and sky high heels!) Here are some pics of me and a link to LatinBayArea.com which covered the many faces Frida that came out for the call. If I make the cut I’ll be at DeYoung June 29th at 6:00pm as a part of their Friday night program. Fun times!
