American Living & JCPenney

Hello from Gala & Dolly Darling!

These photos are from the behind the scenes filming of American Living for JCPenney — much more information on that to come soon!

American Living & JCPenney

Just chillin’ in Tompkins Square Park, acting all casual… while also surrounded by a crew of three people, & being the most dressed up person in the entire place!

Do I need to mention that it was also the hottest day of the summer so far? I felt like a chocolate bar that someone had forgotten about. But still, we soldier on, don’t we?!

I’m wearing…
Big black floppy hat from Charlotte Russe
Square-necked striped top from American Living
Floral print skirt from American Living
Leg Avenue black crinoline (hidden)
Yellow bow belt from WORLD (NZ)
Sam Edelman booties
Purple embossed leather satchel from Cambridge Satchel Company

Dolly is wearing…
Matching leather & Swarovski crystal collar & leash
Fur (model’s own!)

I always wrap her leash around my hand like this so the crystals are showing. What’s the point of blingy dog accessories if no one can SEE them?!

I love wearing this hat — it makes me feel like a demented heiress from the 1920s. Do you get that vibe too? I found it at Charlotte Russe in Las Vegas, & it was only $8. Quelle bargain! I was thrilled to find it, especially since I had been trying on big floppy hats all over Vegas which a) weren’t quite right & b) were all around the $50 mark. I was even able to stuff this in my suitcase & bring it back entirely unscathed. Hooray!

In other news, Dolly is such a supermodel. She was perfect the whole time. What a good girl! I love her so much!

Here’s a behind the scenes video! It’s so cute, you get to see me posing (HAHA!) & there are a handful of my NYC blogging buddies in it too!
